Microwave Pumpkin Mug Cake
Confession, I had some extra pumpkin puree around – and didn’t have the heart to throw perfectly delicious fall flavor in the trash. Must be a cardinal sin, right? Determined to make my next fall inspired dish, I grabbed my cup of coffee and came up with this easy Microwave Pumpkin Mug Cake with Banana.
With banana, you ask? There’s a funny story to the banana addition…Read on for the details and how you can make this perfect pumpkin cake for one in under 2 minutes!
This mug cake originally started as a pumpkin only mug cake. However, after my first cake was made, I found the sweet craving slightly lacking. Not wanting to add EXTRA sugar to my fall dessert, I found myself wondering what else to add for a little extra sweetness.
Good thing my toddler was about to throw away some delicious banana she had been snacking on. I was able to save the beloved fruit (no literally, I made a diving save in front of the kitchen garbage can) and toss a bit into my mug cake. Perfection! The banana added just the right touch of sweetness to finish off this mug cake with all of the fall warm fuzzy feelings!
