  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup milk room temperature
  • 4 tablespoons butter melted & cooled
  • 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
  • 1/2 cup apple pie filling


  • In a small bowl, whisk together flour, sugar, baking powder, and cinnamon
  • Add in milk, butter, and vanilla, whisking well in between each addition
  • Using 14-oz (or larger) microwave-safe mugs (straight sides works best), add several spoonfuls of batter to each mug
  • Sprinkle with a little cinnamon sugar & add a scoop of apple pie filling
  • Alternate layers, ending with cinnamon sugar.
  • Microwave on high 1.5 - 2 minutes for a single mug or 2-3 minutes for both mugs together
  • Allow to cool for a couple of minutes before serving.
  • *Serving suggestion- top with a large helping of whipped cream


Alternate flavor options - 
Chocolate, Spice, Vanilla, Strawberry cake mix- use 6 tbsp cake mix, 2 tbsp applesauce & 1 tbsp water. Mix and cook.
This can also be made in the air fryer - cook at 350 for 12-13 minutes or until the cake is puffed.
