Thank you to all of this year's #AppleWeek sponsors, and thanks for putting together several great prize packages.  I loved working with the different ingredients and kitchen products while developing my recipes for this year's event.

Now onto my Apple Oatmeal Coffee Mug Cake!  This coffee cake tastes like fall in a mug.  With the combination of applesauce, oatmeal, along with the cinnamon and vanilla - it's the perfect way to start off your day.

Apple Oatmeal Coffee Mug Cake

1 Tbsp Butter, softened
2 Tbsp Sugar
3 Tbsp Applesauce, unsweetened
Drop Rodelle Vanilla
1/4 cup Flour
1/8 cup Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal
1/8 tsp Baking Soda
1/4 tsp Cinnamon, ground

Topping:
1 Tbsp Butter, softened
1 Tbsp Flour
1 Tbsp Flahavan's Irish Oatmeal
1 Tbsp Brown Sugar
1/4 tsp Cinnamon, ground

In coffee mug, mix the butter with sugar.  Then add the applesauce and vanilla and stir.  Next add the flour, oatmeal, baking soda and cinnamon and mix well.

In a separate container, mix all five topping ingredients together, forming a wet crumble.  Add the crumble on top of the cake in the coffee mug.

Microwave for 1 minute 11 seconds (because doesn't everyone just press 111 on their microwave) to bake.  Let cool a couple minutes and enjoy!

My favorite bite of this coffee cake is when you get a nice helping of the oatmeal topping with a spoonful of the apple coffee cake!

    1. Exactly! I have six people in my family and a regular coffee cake would take us a couple days to finish, so I like this mug cake when I just want a little something and not something I'm tempted to eat for the next 48 hours...
