2 Minute Pumpkin Caramel Cake in a Mug (Twice as Nice Tuesday)

Yum
Here is another fun dessert in a mug creation.  I think I made a big mistake when I gave this dessert to my husband.  He has asked me to make it for him every night since he first tried it.  Since it only takes a few minutes to put together, I really don't have an excuse to say no.  This fun mug cake makes it feel like Thanksgiving any night of the year.


 Ingredients:
5 Tbs all purpose flour
3 Tbs canned pumpkin puree (plain)
1 Tbs canola oil
1/2 up to1 tsp cinnamon powder
pinch fresh grated nutmeg
1 large egg
1/4 tsp baking soda
1-2 Tbs powdered sugar
caramel syrup (used for ice cream)

garnishes: whipped cream, vanilla ice cream

 Directions:


Mix all ingredients (except caramel syrup) to make a batter.

 Pour into a microwave safe mug that has been sprayed with cooking spray or lightly oiled.  Put in microwave on high for 2 1/2 minutes.  Poke with fork  into cooked cake and pour caramel syrup so it soaks into some of the holes.  Top with whipped cream and/or vanilla ice cream.  Enjoy.

  6. Ok that's it, I have to start making your cakes in a cup. I had been making cakes in a cup for Gabbi using cake mix. I feel better about these.

  10. I have made this stunning seasonal pumpkin dessert today & loved it so much. I used home-made pumpkin puréé because we can't buy it here in Belgium out of a can! :)

  12. Just curious...I don't have a microwave...what would be the oven bake time?

    1. Hi, gosh... I can only guess at this answer. I would suggest trying 350 degrees for 15-20 minutes to see if that bakes it for you. If not, then test it every 5 minutes after that to check to see if a toothpick comes out clean. Hope that helps. :)

  13. You are the queen of mug cakes! :D Pumpkin caramel sounds like fall-erific (heehee, get it?) and I would dive into this if I had it right now!

  14. Ramona, its been ages since I haven't visited your blog...and discovered that I DO follow you. Just left a comment at Ridwan's blog and saw your comment, and right away I clicked over...glad I did.
    Your amazing little pumpkin dessert cake in the microwave is genius...fast, and super yummy. Such a fast 2 minute dessert indulgence that actually would fool somebody when you serve it to them so nicely presented just the way you have it with generous whipped cream! superb and love the photos as well! xo

  15. This is a very dangerous treat. Something as good as this can't be so easy to make because that means I'll be making it until the pumpkin puree runs out, which could take a while. :)

  16. WHAT, so easy! It's amazing how we can make quick and delicious desserts - but this is 2 minutes??? I'm impressed!!!

  17. Do you only use a little of the caramel sauce? And the nutmeg out of the container is what you are referring to?

    1. Hi Shelia, I used about a Tablespoon of the caramel sauce. You can use as much as you like to taste. I used a fresh nutmeg that I grated three or four times across a microplane grater... but you can use a very tiny finger pinch of powdered nutmeg. Hope that helps and you enjoy it. :)
