With our Apple Cinnamon Mug Cake we teach you how to make a simple dessert in your microwave in a matter of minutes. After mixing apples and cinnamon with a few basic plant-based baking ingredients, the batter is poured into a mug and cooked to sweet and spicy perfection in just 1-2 minutes. The one-serving recipe is ideal because it gives you a taste without creating tempting leftovers, and the satisfying flavors will make it a winner for the entire family.
To a blender, add half of the chopped apple, applesauce, nut milk, lemon juice, and vanilla. Blend until smooth.
Add flour, sucanat, cinnamon and baking powder to small bowl. Stir in blended ingredients and other half of chopped apple and mix until combined.
Pour into mug and microwave for 1 minute. Add time in 15-second increments if needed, checking for doneness each time. Serve hot.
