Pumpkin Mug Cake

No need to make a full on pie - get your taste of pumpkin in this mug cake that takes minutes!

This Pumpkin Mug Cake is perfect for when you want a little taste of pumpkin for a dessert or snack. This mug cake does not use eggs, and tastes like a pumpkin dream. I made it last night when I just wanted a little something sweet before my TV time. This is my own recipe, it is not adapted. I do not like to bake with eggs in the microwave so it is egg-free.

This is also a great way to use over any leftover pumpkin that you might have. The time to bake will depend on your microwave, but you know the rule, the toothpick needs to come out clean.

So here it is.

Just a few ingredients,

This is what you need for a pumpkin mug cake!

  1. So easy!! I will do this.
    I’m a big pumpkin fan, as you know, but I really like pumpkin itself. I can totally eat it nearly raw, or out of the can. Without anything added!
    So the cake would just make it even better.

  2. I love pumpkin, and I love mug cake, so I’m sold 🙂

  3. Mmmmmmm! This looks sooooooooo gooooood!

  4. I love the look of this, but will need to adapt the recipe as we don’t usually have canned pumpkin here in the UK. Can I check the amount of sugar used is correct – it sounds high for one portion.

    • Yes, the amount is correct. It is a little high, but you could reduce and use a sweeter frosting. I just used whipped cream and wanted the cake a little sweeter. I hope you like it!

  5. Oh I am definitely trying this recipe. I love anything pumpkin and this looks easy peasy!

  6. Oh yum! I’m going to try this for my hubby who loves pumpkin anything! 😉
