Simple apple pie recipe

When I think of the word apple pie, my head starts to hurt as I start to think, “how to make apple pie crust?” or “how to make apple pie filling?”. Overall, it sounds like a very time consuming and tedious process and just doesn’t help when the sweet cravings kick in. This simple vegan apple pie mug cake recipe is perfect for when you want a delicious apple pie that will take you 60 seconds to make! This came right in time for when I was struggling with those PMS cravings and really felt like hot apple pie but just didn’t have the ingredients or energy to make it! Instead, I threw together these simple ingredients and the result was this extremely fudgy, decadent apple pie!

Calories in apple pie

Now we all love a good old slice of apple pie that is perfectly buttery and crumbly. When I was still in college, I remember walking to the local McDonalds and getting a McDonalds apple pie. I would eat it and could never understand why after consuming one, two or maybe even three I would never be satiated. Only years later did I finally understand that the ingredients used in such an apple pie were mainly simple carbohydrates, loads of sugar that was messing up my hunger scale! McDonalds apple pie calories are around 240 calories and a whopping 17g sugar for that small square of apple pie. This vegan apple pie recipe has almost half the calories, and 1/4 of the sugar!

What are best apples for apple pie?

This recipe makes use of apple puree/ apple sauce which you can make yourself (by steaming and blending apples) or it can be store bought. My two personal favourite are to use granny smith apples to make a granny smith apple pie. It is a delicious apple that is not as sweet as normal varieties. If you prefer a sweeter apple pie then I also enjoy using honey crisp apples to make a honey crisp apple pie! But this being said, any store bought apple sauce will do the trick!

    I tried this one and I am wondering if you think I might be doing something wrong as it doesn’t end up at all like yours… It’s more like porridge … Yummy, yes. I even tried more time. It didn’t rise…

    Thank you for replying 🙂 Yes I was but just now I tried less apple puree and a bit more baking soda. It didn’t get as moist but didn’t rise either… It’s so strange! Can baking soda go bad?? I am now going to try even more baking soda now but stick to the same amount of the rest…

      Hmmm. Are you using baking soda or baking powder? I use baking powder in the recipe & have never tried baking soda! This may be the issue with why it’s not rising? 🙂 x

    I love your recipes. I made the basic apple pie mug cake from the video which says 1/4 tsp baking soda.
    it didn’t rise much at all. tasted good though.
    I looked at the written recipe and you have 1/4 tsp of baking powder listed.
