Dry Ingredients

  • ¼ cup all-purpose flour packed and leveled
  • 2 tablespoon light brown sugar packed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 pinch salt

Wet Ingredients

  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling/mix)
  • 3 tablespoon milk
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil or canola oil
  • ½ teaspoon pure vanilla extract


  • powdered sugar for dusting


  • Mix the dry ingredients in a 12-16 oz mug.
  • Add wet ingredients and mix thoroughly. Be mindful to scrape the bottom edges of the mug for any hidden flour chunks.
  • Microwave for about 90 seconds. The cake will rise high above the rim of the mug. Try not to open the microwave too soon or your cake will sink. If the cake is still uncooked, microwave in 10 second increments.
  • Allow the cake to cool before adding a dusting of powdered sugar and serving.
