I TOTALLY GET IT. I have zero control when it comes to desserts taunting me from the kitchen. 

That’s where this incredibly easy Pumpkin Mug Cake comes in super handy. 

Not only is it delicious, but it takes 5 minutes from start to finish to whip together.

Top it with a dollop of whipped cream or even a drizzle of caramel and prepare to fall in love!

Pumpkin Mug Cake Ingredients

  • vanilla cake mix (white or spiced cake mix also work!)
  • canned pumpkin puree

  • milk
  • vegetable oil

This Pumpkin Mug Cake recipe does not need any eggs – making it the perfect easy mug cake with a great egg free texture.

The milk can be swapped for water or almond/coconut milk as needed. 

You can also replace the pumpkin pie spice with cinnamon if that’s what you have on hand! It’s just as tasty!
