How to prepare the apple and cinnamon mug cake

Open the egg in a bowl and beat it a few minutes with a hand whisk together with the granulated sugar. Then add the milk, oil and mix. Continue with the flour, instant yeast and a generous sprinkle of cinnamon (1), then mix briefly.

Add the peeled and diced apple to the dough and mix with a spatula (2).

Pour the mixture into a mug, sprinkle the surface with a bit of brown sugar and a bit of cinnamon (3) and cook in the microwave oven at maximum power for 2-3 minutes (or 15-20 minutes in a preheated static oven) at 180 degrees C). Remove from the oven and consume the cake in the still warm cup.


We recommend that you immediately enjoy your apple and cinnamon mug cake, but you can still keep it in the fridge, well covered, for 24 hours.
