(Courtesy 5-Minute Mug Cakes, Race Point Publishing.) Approximately 171 calories, without the cream. You could add a dollop of light Cool Whip for only 25 extra calories.

4 tablespoons all-purpose flour

¼ tsp. baking powder

2 tsp. granulated sugar

1 & ½ tablespoons fat-free milk

1/8 tsp. ground cinnamon

2 tablespoons unsweetened applesauce

2 tablespoons chopped apples (1/2- inch cubes)


Topping and Decoration (optional). Serves 2.

½ cup heavy whipping cream

2 tsp. granulated sugar

1 tsp. ground cinnamon


Combine all ingredients except apple cubes in an oversized microwave-safe mug. Mix with a small whisk until batter is smooth. Stir in apple cubes. Cook in microwave for about 1 minute. If cake is not done, heat an additional 15 seconds. Let cake cool a few minutes.

If desired, place the whipping cream and sugar in the mixing bowl of a stand mixer (or use a handheld mixer), and mix on high speed until peaks form. Top the cake with the whipped cream and sift a little cinnamon powder on top of the cake. Cake is best consumed warm or within a few hours of being cooked.
