I have a confession to make: I love cake. Baking a cake in a mug sounds like it should be super easy, right? After all, it’s just a tiny little cake.
Cake in a mug is a lot easier to make than you think. In fact, you’ll wonder why you ever bought those boxed mixes that require six different bowls and a hand mixer. Now you can make cake from scratch without all those annoying bowls!
This cute little cake is perfect for that after-dinner treat, or it’s great for breakfast if you’re that kind of person. Either way, it’s super simple to make, and will take less than 5 minutes of active work on your part.
The great thing about this recipe is that you don’t have to use just one mug or one type of mug. You can use different mugs in different sizes for different portions. So if you just want a little bite of cake, use a smaller mug. If you’re having company, use larger mugs.
To celebrate Fall, I know you will love the following recipe. This is so simple, so let’s get baking. Here’s what you’ll need:
Pumpkin Spice Latte Mug Cakes
2 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
3 Tablespoons brewed espresso coffee or very strong coffee, room temperature
1 Tablespoon canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/4 Cup sugar
1/2 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of salt
Whipped cream, for serving
Ground cinnamon, for serving
- In small bowl, beat melted butter, egg, espresso and pumpkin with whisk. Add the sugar, Bisquick mix, pumpkin pie spice and salt. Mix until incorporated; batter may be lumpy.
- Divide batter between 2 microwavable mugs. Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes. Cool a few minutes before serving.
- Top with whipped cream and a sprinkle of cinnamon.
TIP #1: If you want to save on clean up mix the batter in one mug, and then pour half of it into the other mug.
TIP #2: If you are not a fan of coffee, you can use another liquid such as water, buttermilk, Chi Tea, milk, etc.
