Pumpkin Mug Cake is an easy, one serving fall treat. I am SO excited to share this recipe with you today, because it’s insanely good!
Let me start this story by telling you I almost threw in the towel on this recipe about 17 times. I just COULDN’T GET IT RIGHT. Sometimes recipes that seem the easiest turn out to be the trickiest. Well, this is that.
I mean, it’s a one serving cake…cooked in a microwave…with pumpkin. Baking in the microwave certainly isn’t an ideal scenario. Certainly, the microwave can produce rubbery, chewy, unappetizing food. And I have to admit, I have never jumped on the “mug cake” bandwagon. They just never seem worth the calories.
ANNNYYYYWAYYYY.. This recipe has changed the game for me. It’s SO FREAKING GOOD. It took me about 20 tries…I kid you not…but I nailed it.
Literally all you do is mix all the ingredients together in a little bowl…
Pour that into a mug that is coated in nonstick spray and microwave it for 60 seconds. (It could take 60-90 seconds depending on your microwave, but mine is always done in 60 seconds)
Eating this with a little ice cream is just the right thing to do.
Or you can dust it with powdered sugar, Or both. Because more is more.
