- In a 15-ounce custard cup, microwave the butter, uncovered, on 100% power for about 30 seconds or just until melted. Swirl the butter in the custard cup, coating the entire surface.
- Lightly beat the egg in a medium bowl. Pour the excess butter from the custard cup into the beaten egg. Stir in the dark corn syrup and vanilla.
- Stir together the flour and baking powder. Stir flour mixture into egg mixture. Gently fold in the chopped pecans. Pour mixture into the buttered custard cup.
- Microwave, uncovered, on 50% power for 3 to 4 minutes or until the pecan mixture is just set, rotating the custard cup a half-turn every minute. Sift a little confectioners' sugar on top. Serve warm with light cream, if desired.
- Makes 2 servings.
