  • In a large bowl, whisk together the whole wheat pastry flour, all-purpose flour, baking powder, cinnamon and salt.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk the egg. Pour in the milk, oil and syrup. Whisk to combine.
  • Pour the milk mixture into the dry ingredients. Whisk to combine, until most of the lumps are gone. Some lumps are okay.
  • Lightly coat a mug or small coffee cup with cooking spray. Scoop 1/3 cup of the batter into the mug. Stir 1 tablespoon (except reserve a few cherries) into the batter in the mug. Lightly press the reserved cherries (3-4) onto the top of the batter.
  • Microwave for 45 to 60 seconds, or until the batter is set. (My microwave is 1200W and it took 55 seconds).
  • Drizzle with maple syrup. Serve.
