The Campground Gourmet has a mouth-watering dessert selection, with recipes for churros, hot chocolate, and apple hand pies. There’s also a fun variety of mug cakes, that can be easily made at the campground using your RV microwave!
Or you can make them at home, after school with the kids, just because it’s cold and rainy outside. Can you guess what we have planned for the afternoon?
Apple Cider Mug Cake
Makes 2 mug cakes

- ½ teaspoon aluminum free baking powder
- ¼ teaspoon kosher salt
- ¾ cup whole milk
- ¼ cup unsalted butter melted and cooled
- ¼ cup apple pie filling chopped fine

In a small pan, melt the butter and set aside to cool. In a medium bowl, whisk together dry ingredients. Set aside.
In a small bowl or large measuring cup, whisk together milk, vanilla extract, apple pie filling, and melted butter.
Pour the milk mixture into the center of the flour mixture, carefully but quickly whisk the batter until no lumps remain, the batter should be smooth.
Divide batter evenly between two, 14 or 16 ounce microwave-safe mugs. Microwave on high for 1 ½ – 2 minutes depending on your microwave.
Handle and mug will be hot when finished so carefully remove and enjoy!
