I know I previously wrote that I was done making pumpkin recipes until next Fall season. But pumpkin is so yummy. And I keep coming across more recipes I want to try. And I have a few more cans of pumpkin lying around.
So this weekend, I set about making a microwave pumpkin mug cake. My first few attempts weren’t very good. One bubbled over like a volcano. Another tasted like cooked sweet eggs. After a few failed attempts I decided to give it up and check out if there were any recipes out there. Sure enough, I found a few pumpkin mug cake recipes.
I randomly chose one, and success! Out came a nice mug cake.
The texture is a tiny bit on the chewy/rubbery side which sometimes happens with microwave mug cakes, but it was still good. The light cinnamon was addicting. Perhaps I’ll fiddle with this recipe before to see if I can improve on the texture.
It’s not my favorite mug cake recipe, but it was still enjoyable and I had no problem finishing mine.
Here are the other mug cakes I’ve made:
- Nutella brownie mug cake
- Brownie mug cake
- Blueberry mug cake
- Nutella Chocolate Mug Cake
- Chocolate mug cake
- Chocolate caramel mug cake
- Peanut butter chocolate mug cake
Pumpkin Mug Cake
Prep Time: 5 mins
Cook Time: 2 mins
Total Time: 7 mins
2 tablespoons skim milk
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
7 tablespoons all purpose flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup white sugar
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
1. Place all ingredients into an oversized mug. Mix together with a small whisk or fork.
2. Microwave on high for 1 minute 30 seconds. If there is any spillage at this point, wipe off side of mug. Check doneness. Microwave for 30 second intervals until done. Mine was complete at 2 minutes. Careful not to overcook cake or it will be rubbery.
