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.
PLUS, now you can BUY my first e-book, Gemma’s Mug Meals, and get 80+ Pages featuring 30 Mug Meal Recipes for breakfast, lunch, dinner, snack and dessert including 10 Exclusive Recipes. Just click on the image below to buy it. I hope you enjoy!
