Recipe Highlights

Mug cakes are such a great easy, single-serving dessert that you can make in just a few minutes. They are perfect for when you don’t want to bake an entire cake, but you just want something sweet to satisfy your cravings.

This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mug Cake uses real pumpkin puree in the batter, and it is so perfectly fluffy and scrumptious.

Recipe Steps

Step One

The first step to making any mug cake is to spray a microwavable mug or small ramekin with nonstick cooking spray. Then, add in the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and the egg white.

Please see the recipe card at the end of this post for the exact ingredients and measurements.

Step Two

Next, add your dry ingredients to the wet ingredients and stir. I like to use a small whisk to ensure there are no clumps.

Step Three

The last step is to microwave your Pumpkin Mug Cake. In my microwave, I usually cook mug cakes for 75 seconds. But, you may need to bake it up to 90 seconds or even 120 seconds.

You will know when the mug cake is done because it will have doubled in size and will appear fluffy on top.

Step Four

Remove your single-serve Pumpkin Mug Cake from the microwave. If you want, you can turn the cake out onto a serving plate. Or, you can just eat it right out of the mug.
