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
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
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!
