Mug Cakes are easy to make if you have a microwave. Based on my ‘Instant Mug Cake’ recipe, I made Apple Mug Cake the other day. The result was not satisfactory. I should have peeled the Apple. I used only 1/2 Apple but it was not enough. And the cake was drier than I expected. I alter the recipe and method. Now I can share the recipe with you. When you crave Apple Cake, this can be an alternative.


1 Serving *I used 380ml mug


1 tablespoon (15g) Butter *1 tablespoon is 15ml
1 Apple
2 tablespoons Sugar
1 Egg
3 tablespoons Self-Raising Flour
Ground Cinnamon
1 tablespoon Sultanas *optional
Sour Cream, Thickened Cream OR Vanilla Ice Cream, etc.

  1. Place Butter in a mug. Peel Apple, cut into small thin pieces, add to the mug, and microwave for 1 minute. Stir and microwave again for 1 more minute. *Note: I used 1000W microwave.
  2. Add Sugar and mix well. The volume of Apple is now reduced, Apple is softened, and some juice has come out.
  3. Add Egg, stir well, then add Self-Raising Flour and some Ground Cinnamon, and mix well until smooth. You may wish to add Sultanas.
  4. Microwave for 1 to 1 & 1/2 minutes OR until cooked. I cooked for 1 minute and 20 seconds in 1000W microwave. *Note: The cake rises high but it will shrink.
  5. Add some extra Ground Cinnamon if you like it, and enjoy with Sour Cream, Thickened Cream OR Vanilla Ice Cream, etc.
