Moist Almond Mug Cake

I love mug cakes, but so many of them can be so eggy they just aren't that tasty.   I am always on the look out for new recipes and then try to adapt them to my own taste.   Here is one I've been working on and think I've come up with something good.    This recipe will make two mug cakes, so you will have one to share.

1/4 cup and 2 tbsp.  all purpose flour
1/4 cup and 2 tbsp.  almond flour
1/2 tsp. baking powder
4-5 tbsp. sugar, white or brown your choice
a pinch of salt
3/4 cup milk
5 tbsp. melted butter or vegetable oil (butter is more flavorful of course)
1 tsp. vanilla
a couple drops of almond extract

Spray two large mugs with cooking spray.   Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl and mix well.   Then add the milk, butter and extracts.  Mix well and then divide between the two mugs.   Place in the microwave and cook on high for 2 minutes and check for doneness with a toothpick.  If toothpick comes out clean, it is done.  It not, continue cooking for another 30-60 seconds or until the toothpick comes out clean.   Cool before eating.  You can frost or just sprinkle with some powdered sugar.
