Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake
Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake
Compliments of Table For Two Blog
Prep time: 2 mins Cook time: 2 mins Total time: 4 mins
¼ cup all-purpose flour
½ teaspoon baking powder
4 teaspoons granulated sugar
½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of salt
1 teaspoon pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
2 tablespoons milk
¼ teaspoon vanilla extract
1 teaspoon vegetable oil
½ tablespoon water
In a small bowl, whisk together the dry ingredients.
Make a well in the center of the dry ingredients then add the wet ingredients. Whisk everything together until combined and no lumps remain.
Pour batter into a microwave-safe mug. Mine was a 14-ounce mug. You want enough head space for the cake to rise without pouring over.
Place a paper towel into the microwave and set the mug on top (this is to catch any batter if your mug cake overflows).
Microwave mug cake for 1 minute and 10 seconds on high (PLEASE READ NOTES CAREFULLY BELOW)
Carefully remove from microwave, add a scoop of vanilla ice cream on top and devour! Alternatively, you can use homemade salted caramel sauce too or whatever topping you want!
Please note that ALL microwaves are different therefore can yield different results and can overcook this mug cake if you aren't careful. My microwave is 950 watts and I cooked mine on 100% power for 1 minute and 50 seconds. Knowing this information, it may help you better judge how long to cook yours for and at what power.
If you feel that your batter is still too wet after 1 minute and 10 seconds, feel free to zap it a little longer.
Yes, no eggs in this either. Eggs is what makes typical mug cakes spongey!
**This recipe is specifically made for the microwave. I developed it for the microwave. I don't know cook time or temperature for an oven...I'd imagine it'd be a very quick cook time at a low temp., but since I didn't test the recipe for an oven, I cannot give specifics. Sorry!
