TorTazza apple pie mug cake

Mug cakes seem so yesterday (remember when the recipe circulated via emails?), but not surprisingly, this microwave dessert is still around and claiming space in the baking section of italian supermarkets. Going by the name of TorTazza, or cake (torta) in a cup (tazza), there are 2 flavors to choose from: red velvet and apple pie. Apple pie? Red velvet? In a cup? I dropped Apple Pie into the cart when MotH wasn’t looking.

TorTazza
Add mix to mug, stir in 4 tablespoons water until blended, nuke for 90 seconds. Cool and eat.

There are 3 ways to prepare it: with water, with water and whipped cream, or with sparkling water. Now I know some people go bleah at carbonated water but it results in a softer, fluffier texture and no weird taste (to me anyway). Concentrated apple and lemon juice powders are listed among the ingredients so there is a hint of apple flavor.  To make it better, a good squeeze of whipped topping does the trick. Perfect for this weather we’re having today.
