Here is another scrumptious, convenient (maybe too convenient!) mug cake creation. I have to admit, the main motivation for making homemade applesauce was so that I could make this caramel apple mug cake. This cake is kind of a fusion of cake and apple pie because it’s spongy and light like cake but there are bits of cooked apple and it’s all brought together with a lovely caramel sauce topping like pie.
I melted some wrapped caramels by popping them in the microwave for a few seconds, because that is what I had on hand, but a caramel sauce would have probably been ideal. Whatever caramel you have should do the trick though. Or if you want to get real crazy you could make your own caramel sauce. This spiced caramel sauce I posted a while back would be amazing.
