BM# 70: Week 3/ Day 3 Theme: Cooking for One Dish: Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake
I was wondering what to make for the last day of ‘Cooking for One‘ and dessert was not on my mind at all. Then my sister gifted me a cookbook called ‘Mug Cakes‘ by Leslie Bilderback. So I made this Pumpkin spice Mug cake from the book.
Pumpkin season is in full swing and I have quite a few pumpkin recipes coming up on the blog. I had some pumpkin puree leftover from another recipe, so this mug cake was just perfect to use up that little bit left. It takes about 10~15 minutes from start to finish (which many or may not include actual eating it too).There is no added fat in this recipe which I thought was interesting. But the cake turned out soft and fluffy. It is best to eat this pumpkin spice mug cake warm from the oven because it gets a little rubbery as it cools down.I loved this week’s theme a lot, it gave me a chance to try some recipes that I would like to eat when I cook for myself (check out the recipes for Thai Quinoa salad and Pasta salad with goat cheese that I posted earlier this week).
