You loosely covered the cup, didn't you--and water completely covered the top of the egg--yes.
OK now another way to do it.
Use the ring from a two part jelly jar top. Bring water to a simmer. Drop the egg into the ring and cook, basting the top with hot water if necessary. Makes a perfect egg mcmuffin.
When swirling water, start the swirl, and drop the egg into the center of the "tornado/vortex".
