Another take on my classic chocolate mug cake in case you aren’t feeling chocolate and wanting a fruity pie flavor!
Clearly I’m obsessed with making mug cakes because I have five different mug cake flavors on the site.
The chocolate mug cake is obviously the classic and the most popular.
So, if you haven’t tried that one yet, I highly recommend.
Also, for this mug cake, you should make a batch of salted caramel because you’re going to need it in this salted caramel apple spice mug cake!
It definitely elevates the flavor and who doesn’t love salted caramel?
This mug cake reminds me of a salted caramel apple pie.
You must top this a la mode! A giant scoop of vanilla ice cream would be DIVINE.
If you’ve tried my other mug cakes then you know what you’re in for.
Moist, fluffy, and the best kinda dessert ever!
During apple season, I figured I’d come up with an apple-flavored one.
Drizzle the salted caramel all over the top and omg, best dessert ever!
You can share but it’s single-serving so sharing is definitely optional ;) it took me 7 tries to finally get this to be the texture I wanted and I hope you enjoy it just as much as we do!! :)

Salted Caramel Apple Spice Mug Cake
Servings are adjustable but please note that results, timing, and cookware may vary when adjusting servings.
- 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
- 1/2 teaspoon apple pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 3 tablespoons granulated sugar
- Pinch of salt
- 1 1/2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce
- 2 tablespoons milk
- 1 teaspoon vegetable oil
- 1 teaspoon water
- In a small bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
- Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients then add the wet ingredients. Whisk everything together until combined and no lumps remain.
- Pour batter into a microwave-safe mug. Mine was a 14-ounce mug. You want enough head space for the cake to rise without pouring over.
- Place a paper towel into the microwave and set the mug on top (this is to catch any batter if your mug cake overflows).
- Microwave mug cake for 1 minute and 50 seconds on high (PLEASE READ NOTES CAREFULLY BELOW)
- Carefully remove from microwave, drizzle your homemade salted caramel sauce (or you can use a store-bought caramel sauce) on top and enjoy!
