Pumpkin Mug Cake - When life gives you Fall, make pumpkin mug Cakes

Hi Bold Bakers!

Pumpkin does not only have to apply to pies this time of year, we can also use it to make a Pumpkin Mug Cake! It’s a perfect single-serving cake that takes as long to cook as it does to mix up from scratch, which is almost no time at all.

Since Fall is here I like to make the most of seasonal flavors, like spices, apples and pumpkin. If you have trouble finding pumpkin puree in your country I created a Bold Baking Basics on how you can make your own Homemade Pumpkin Puree (spoiler alert, you just roast pumpkins).

Mug Meals are for everyone! Whether you are short on time, want to portion control, or just want to make homemade meals with little fuss and waste then yes, mug meals are for you. A perfect example of this is my husband Kevin makes the Burrito in a Mug  almost every day for breakfast. Not because we don’t have an oven but because he can make it in less than 5 minutes in the one mug.

I love mug cakes because they are just a speedier way to enjoy cake with little prep time and practically no cleaning up. I have over 50+ Mug Recipes  from breakfast to dessert and everything in between so make sure you check them out.

So delicious! I used melted butter instead of oil and honey instead of maple syrup and it turned out so good! I also added a tablespoon of cookie butter which gave it an extra layer of autumnal depth!

I wanted to know what else can I use if I don’t have syrup?

Simply satisfying! Used 3 Tbs. white rice flour, 1 Tbs. corn starch & 1/8 tsp. xanthan gum instead of the 4 Tbs. regular flour because of my gluten intolerance. Will be making again for my son who has additional food allergies. Thanks so much for sharing!

I had some leftover butternut from a barbecue so last night I tried the microwave pumpkin pie. It was more like a flavoured omelette as the ratio of egg is quite big to me. And tonight I tried this microwave pumpkin cake. I loved this one! No eggy taste, yummy pumpkin and spice flavours, perfectly most me sweetened! I still have some homemade butternut puree and will make this cake again tomorrow. Thank you Gemma!
