Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mug Cake


This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mug Cake is a delicious way to satisfy your craving for something sweet. Made in less than 2 minutes in the microwave, this is the ultimate easy dessert. This recipe is gluten-free and dairy-free.



  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 egg white
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons gluten-free flour (I used the Bob’s 1-to-1 Gluten-Free Baking Mix)
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or ground cinnamon)
  • 1 tablespoon chocolate chips
  • 1/8 teaspoon sea salt


  1. The first step to making any mug cake is to spray a microwavable mug or small ramekin with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Then, add in the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and the egg white.
  3. Next, add in the flour, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice (or cinnamon), chocolate chips, and sea salt to the wet ingredients and stir.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
