What’s better than a mug cake? Honestly, it is the perfect dessert. Super quick and easy and doesn’t force you to clean a bunch of dirty dishes or wait forever for it to bake and cool. Mug cake recipes are my go to when I am feeling lazy and craving an easy dessert.
In honor of Pi Day on March 14 (shout out to my fellow math nerds!) I decided to see if I could make an apple pie mug cake. And *spoiler alert* it’s delicious and surprisingly super easy to do.
Cut up half an apple into bite sized pieces and put them in a mug. Add enough water to cover the apples. Microwave for 1 minute or until the apples are softened. Then drain the water out.
Into your mug add your cooked apples, 2 tablespoons applesauce, 1/4 cup flour, 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon non dairy milk, 1/2 teaspoon baking powder, and 1 tablespoon water. Mix until combined and then microwave for 1 minute.
If you want to make a crumble to top your mug cake, just combine 1 tablespoon flour, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, and 1.5 teaspoons applesauce. Top your cooked mug cake with the crumble and enjoy!
I hope you try out this recipe. I know I will be making it whenever I have a sugar craving!
