  Egg 1
  Milk 5 Tablespoon
  Pina colada yogurt 3 Tablespoon (Yoplait)
  Oil 2 Tablespoon
  Vanilla extract 1⁄8 Teaspoon (Mccormick)
  Baking powder 1⁄4 Teaspoon (Argo)
  Guar gum/Xanthan gum / tapioca flour 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Ground cinnamon 1⁄2 Teaspoon (Mccormick)
  Light brown sugar 4 Tablespoon (Domino)
  Gluten free sorghum flour 4 Tablespoon
  Gluten free soy flour 4 Tablespoon
  Potato starch 1 Tablespoon
  Coconut pudding mix 2 Tablespoon (Jell-O)
  Shredded coconut 2 Tablespoon

Prepare your microwavable mug by coating the inside lightly with cooking spray.
Mix the ingredients in a small bowl. Beat egg first with a spoon and mix in other liquid ingredients. Then add dry ingredients and mix until you've removed all the lumps.
Pour the batter into the mug (do not fill more than halfway) and smooth the top with a spoon. Thump mug firmly on the tabletop six times to remove excess air bubbles. Place mug on top of a microwavable small plate or saucer.

Bake for 3 - 4 minutes. Check for doneness by inserting a toothpick in the middle of the microwave mug cake and removing the toothpick. If the toothpick is dry, the MMC is done.

Wait 2 minutes, then run a butter knife along the inside of the mug, and tip the cake onto a plate. Position the mug cake so that the slightly rounded surface is on top. Your microwave mug cake will now look like a slightly overgrown muffin.

Frost the whole Pina Colada Microwave Mug Cake with Yoplait® Pina Colada yogurt, or split the MMC in half, and frost each half individually (in which case you'll end up with two separate MMCs - or you can reassemble the frosted halves to create a layered MMC). Decorate, if you wish, with shredded coconut.
