MUG IT: Individual Pumpkin Cakes

Though normally found in fall-Pumpkin cakes are a fun summer favortie of mine. I enjoy making them for a few reasons, first they can be made in a few minutes, second they are made in the microwave so no oven heated, third well-they are just yummy!

Full time 6 minutes
Serves 1

The needs-

1 egg
1/2 cup flour, leveled off
1/4 cup brown sugar, not packed
1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
2 tbsp half and half (or whole milk)
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp salt
1/4 tsp allspice
1/4 tsp nutmeg

The know-

In a small mixing bowl combine flour, brown sugar, salt, allspice, and nutmeg.

Add in remaining ingredients.

Pour mixture into a large ramekin (1 1/2 cup size) or single serve baking dish.

Microwave 1 1/2 minutes and let rest 30 seconds.

Microwave 1 1/2 minutes (mixture puffs when baking rest period prevents spillage).

Allow to cool 2 minutes before eating. Cheers!
