Caramel Apple Mug Cake

Caramel Apple Mug Cake – The perfect single-serving dessert that tastes just like a caramel apple! It is a delicious fall treat!

I am back with another mug cake! My most popular posts are my Carrot Cake Mug Cake and Peanut Butter Mug Cake but I haven’t made any new ones since last spring! I have a whole bunch more planned for the next few weeks so stay tuned!

For this mug cake, I took the flavors from a fall favorite, caramel apples! I made a homemade salted caramel sauce for the top and filled the batter with fresh apples and applesauce (I actually used the Apple Butter I whipped up a few weeks back because I had a whole bunch extra) and I was so happy with how it turned out! I highly suggest making homemade whipped cream for the top, it really makes it perfect but if you have some vanilla ice cream on hand, that would be yummy too!

One of my favorite things about mug cakes is the fact they are single-serving! It prevents me from eating a whole cake by myself! I make them for lunch on occasion because it is just the perfect amount of food and it only takes minutes to make from start to finish!
