One Minute Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake

You guys know that I’m kinda little bit obsessed with microwave cakes (or mug cakes as some folks call them). I think they are a great way to have a sweet treat. You get all the sweetness and treatness of a baked good in an adorable portion.

Last week, Tori chimed in on Facebook asking if I had the hookup for a good pumpkin microwave cake recipe. I hadn’t seen a recipe anywhere, but I knew right then it was definitely time for me to get back to slaving over a hot microwave.

After just a few tweaks to my classic peanut butter cake recipe, I had a perfectly Fall and pumpkin-y treat. This one was so crazy good. One of the issues with microwave cakes is that you have to watch so carefully to make sure they don’t dry out, but the pumpkin puree in this cake keeps it moist, gooey and totally delicious.

The perfect Fall evening? Curled up under a cozy throw on the couch with a mug of coffee, a good book and this cake. Happy Autumn, friends!
