Sometimes you just want a little something.
Maybe it's an afternoon snack or those few bites of sweetness that finish off a meal.
This Coffee Cup Upside-Down Cake perfectly fits this bill.
It cooks up in just a couple of minutes in the microwave. It calls for half an egg (yes, we know), so why not make two.
