1 apple, cored, peeled, sliced and chopped

¼ cup sugar (less if a sweeter variety of apple)


¼ cup water

1 Tbsp flour

2 Tbsp brown sugar

2 Tbsp white sugar

2 Tbsp butter

½ tsp vanilla


½ cup flour

½ cup sugar

¼ tsp salt

½ tsp baking soda

¾ tsp cinnamon

1 egg

Mix sugar with apple and divide between 2 microwave safe mugs. Microwave for 1-2 minutes until apples are softened. Make sauce by whisking water, flour and sugars in a microwave safe measuring cup. Microwave until thick, around a minute or two. Add butter, and vanilla, and whisk until smooth, set aside. Make cake by mixing dry ingredients and adding egg; stir until makes a thick batter. Divide batter on top of each mug of steamed apples; stir in to mix and microwave until a toothpick inserted comes out clean; around 3 minutes. Pour sauce over hot cakes, add whipped topping!
