applesauce, or as needed
vanilla extract, or to taste
This may not be pretty to look at, but it sure does taste good! I must admit I tried this out of a sweet tooth craving and being that this makes a cake for one in under 5 minutes I figured what do I have to lose? It's simple, easy and really hits the spot when you want something sweet without a lot of effort. Perfect with a cup of hot tea!
If in a desperate pinch, it would do and I see potential in the recipe, but the way it is, it just doesn't completely work. Dough was rather gummy. I'm going to play with the ingredients/ratio and see if I can create something along this idea.
Wow! I've read so many bad reviews of mug cakes that I was skeptical- but I wanted to give it a try. So glad I did! Delicious! I did have to use a full 3 Tbsp of apple sauce to get a batter and it took 2 1/2 minutes to cook (I checked every 20 seconds after the first minute) but it was awesome!! Perfect for making dessert for one.
Well mine didn't come out looking like the picture but I'm still licking my lips. I didn't have brown sugar for the crumb topping mix - used white, and had to make applesauce using apples water and cinnamon. The cake was a bit dense in texture but still tasted great! Looking forward to my next serving
Yum! I used a little bit less than one tablespoon of butter for the batter and it came out fine. For the applesauce I used cinnamon applesauce and I added a few teaspoons of chopped walnuts to the topping. Microwaved for 80 seconds and BAM! Instant coffee cake!
Let me start by saying I have NEVER cooked or baked in my microwave before. Having said this, I should point out that I am 5 months pregnant so those of you who have been there understand! I was craving coffee cake but did not have eggs in the house when I came accross this recipe. Unbelieveable! The consistency and taste are very close to a standard coffee cake., and the serving size is perfect. Genius! I added extra applesauce like the others. Do be careful as it is stays hot for awhile. Thanks for a great craving fix!!!
Amazing I added extra applesauce and cinnamon
I was completely surprised by this. It really was good, and I'll make it again when in the mood. I used 2 T applesauce, and mine took 80 seconds exactly. It was thick, but not overly, and it was moist. Now, you can't rate it by comparing it to a regular coffee cake, but for how easy and fast it is, I give it 5 stars! (My prep was less than 10 min.)
