Honestly, this is one the best pumpkin recipes!!! I loved both the taste and the texture of the pie! Though in the ingredients it is mentioned 1/2 tsp vanilla and not in the instructions, but I added it to the purée mix… Thank you Gemma ❤

One teaspoon of spice was way too overpowering! I couldn’t figure out why it didn’t taste sweet enough, so I reduced the spice by half and it was perfect. Will be eating this many, many more times. Thanks!!

Two questions: Can I use a silicone baking cup instead of a mug? Would the same recipe work if I baked instead of microwaved and, if so, what time and temperature? Thanks.

I was in heaven when I found this recipe. I always seem to have leftover pumpkin. I made some pumpkin oatmeal cookies and was trying to find out what to do with the rest of the pumpkin. I doubled the recipe and used a scone to cover the bottom of two mugs. What an easy and delicious mug pie! I can’t wait to make it again. Thanks so much!

Hi Gemma! This pumpkin pie in a mug was great! I loved it; my husband doesn’t care for pumpkin pie so if I buy one I eat the whole thing! Which I don’t need to do.. thank you for your recipe!

This is my second mug dessert from your website. The procedure went smoothly, but I must admit that the result was not the pumpkin pie taste I am used to. It actually tastes like egg custard flavored with pumpkin. If you like egg custard, you will probably enjoy this recipe.

Perfect for my lifestyle. I, by choice, do not have a stove. I have always contended I can make do with a microwave. (NO, turkey!) And this whole page of microwave pies proves me right. Thank you it is great.

I divided the recipe between two teacups and cooked it a bit less. Delish and half the calories. (But a lot of room in the cup for whipped cream!)

I made it. Most importantly need to watch the timing. I did 15 seconds, stir, micro another 15 seconds. Let cool. I maybe should have done another 10 – 20 seconds. I topped it with marshmallows. MMM!

This tasted great. However when i cooked mine i gave it 4 mins at 900w and it was like scrambled egg texture. Is this correct or do i need to cook it longer until it resembles a cake like texture ??? Very tasty though.
