  • Step 2

    Place flour into a small bowl or measuring cup and stir baking powder into flour with a mini whisk or fork. Pour flour mixture over batter and whisk just until you can’t see visible flour.

  • Step 3

    Divide batter evenly between 2 coffee cups. Gently tap the cups on a work surface to eliminate air bubbles.

  • Step 4

    Place cups into microwave oven, one at a time. Microwave each cup on High for 45 seconds. Nothing will happen in the first 30 seconds; in the last 10 to 15 seconds, batter will begin to rise in the cup. Cooked cake will collapse after microwaving. Remove from oven and let cool 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Step 5

    Lightly dust each serving with confectioners’ sugar and 1/8 teaspoon cocoa. Place each coffee cup onto a saucer and serve.

  • Cook's Note:

    To toast sliced almonds, place them into a dry skillet over medium heat and shake the skillet constantly until almonds are golden brown and fragrant, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from skillet and let cool.
