This is a sweet, chewy and fruit loaded Apple Crumble Mug Cake Recipe that tastes like you worked on it for hours, but is ready in less than 15 minutes!


This recipe makes two apple crumbles in a mug.

  • 1 tablespoon flour
  • 1 tablespoon lemon juice

In a separate bowl, add the ingredients for the apple filling and mix well.

Divide the apple filling mixture among two mugs and top with crumble.


Microwave each mug, separately, on high for 3-4 minutes, until mixture is bubbly.

Be careful when you take the mugs out of the microwave as they will be VERY hot!! I use a towel.


Top with vanilla ice cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon. Serve and eat!
