This easy mug cake has all the flavors of a pumpkin spice latte.


  • 4 tbsp (30g) all-purpose flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 tbsp (25g) granulated sugar
  • 2 tbsp (30ml) fat-free milk
  • 1/2 tbsp (7.5ml) vegetable oil
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin spice
  • 1/4 tsp espresso powder
  • 2 tbsp (30g) canned pumpkin puree


  1. Combine all ingredients in an oversized microwave-safe mug. Mix with a small whisk until batter is smooth.

  2. Cook in the microwave for approximately 1 minute 30 seconds. If cake is not done, heat an additional 15 seconds. Let cake cool a few minutes before eating. Cake is best consumed while still warm or within a few hours of it being cooked.


This single serving cake will be about the size of a cupcake. For the photos, I doubled the recipe to use my new Fall oversized mug.
