Pumpkin Spice Latte Mug Cake

It’s been a while since I made a mug cake recipe. Don’t worry, I haven’t abandoned my mug cake series. I already previously made a pumpkin mug cake. A visit to Starbucks inspired this pumpkin spice latte mug cake.

This doesn’t taste exactly like the drink, but the cake has hints of coffee, pumpkin spice and pumpkin. I topped it with some whipped cream frosting and cinnamon but next time I might top it with some pumpkin latte spice frosting to really enhance the pumpkin spice latte flavor.

Pumpkin Spice Latte Mug Cake


For the cake:
1 egg
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 cinnamon
1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
1/8 teaspoon salt


For the frosting:
1 cup of heavy cream
3 tablespoons sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons brewed pumpkin spice coffee


1. Place all ingredients into an oversized mug. Mix together with a small whisk or fork. If you don't have a huge oversized mug, split the batter into two cups and cook them separately.

2. Microwave on high for 1 minute for small mug and 1 minute 30 second for large. Check doneness. Microwave for 30 second intervals until done. I made mine one giant serving and it was done at 2 minutes.

3. While cake is cooling make frosting. Beat heavy cream, coffee and sugar on high speed until peeks form. Top on cake when cooled. You can also add a little bit more cinnamon over frosting.

  1. This is awesome. I love your mug cake recipes and pumpkin is basically my favorite thing about fall. I can’t wait to make this!!

    • I couldn’t quite get it to taste like the latte, I think because that one has so much milk and I’m working with cake here. But I still like it. And the whipped cream on top helps. Though I might like the regular pumpkin mug cake a little more because I could really taste the pumpkin in that one.
