I’ve made a lot of pumpkin mug cake variations, but this is by far my favorite. It’s got all those amazing spices: ginger, cloves, nutmeg, cinnamon. It’s soft, fluffy, moist and pumpkiny. Excuse me while I go make myself another one!

By the way, if you enjoy this recipe, it’s one of the nearly 100 recipes in my new 5-Minute Mug Cakes book.
