Wacky Applesauce Cake in a Cup

Wacky_Apple_Applesauce_CakeinaCup1Do you ever have a craving for cake, but don’t want to make a whole one? Try this awesome idea for a single serving, quick, cake in a cup!

– 1 Tbsp butter
– 2 Tbsp sugar
– 2 Tbsp Wacky Apple Cinnamon Applesauce
– 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
– 2 drops pure vanilla extract
– 1/4 Cup flour
– 1/8 tsp baking powder
– pinch of sea salt
– Chopped fresh apple chunks

Soften butter in microwave until soft, but not melted. About 10 seconds. Stir in sugar and mix well. Stir in Applesauce, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla extract until incorporated. Now stir in the flour, baking powder, salt and apples. Mix until combined and smooth out top of batter in cup. Sprinkle your favorite granola on top, for an easy and delicious crumb topping. Pop it in the microwave for 50 – 80 seconds. Every microwave is different and weather conditions will also effect cook time. I suggest after 50 seconds, proceed at 10 second intervals. Enjoy warm, right out of the microwave, they really do taste their best right away. Careful not to mircrowave too long, they can get rubbery. Use basic recipe for an easy platfrom to add nutrients. Try adding flax seed, chia seeds, cranberries, walnuts, granola, or chocolate chips! These make a great way to hide delicious nutrients in a “cake form.” Try combining granola, apples and flax and microwaving in a non-waxed paper cup for a quick breakfast while running out the door in the morning. Enjoy!
