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 tbsp skim milk
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 7 tbsp all purpose flour
- 1/4 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 cup white sugar
- 1/4 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1/8 tsp salt
For the Frosting
- 1 cup heavy cream
- 3 tbsp sugar
- 1 1/2 tbsp brewed pumpkin spice coffee
- 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.
- 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.
- 30-secondWhile 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.
