Best Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake
You know that delicious pumpkin bread or cake at Thanksgiving that you can’t resist having a slice of? Well, this is exactly what this single-serving pumpkin mug cake tastes like.
It’s so tasty and so fast! A normal pumpkin cake takes an hour to bake. This one takes 1 minute and 15 seconds.
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.
