A quick and easy PUMPKIN MUG CAKE that's filled with chocolate chips and is ready in just 5 minutes!
- A delicious pumpkin cake that's ready in just 5 minutes
- A quick and easy dessert recipe
- Even better when topped with chocolate chips
Flour - whole wheat, but can sub all purpose flour
Brown sugar - can sub cane sugar
Milk- any kind
Start by stirring the dry ingredients--flour, brown sugar, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda, and salt--together in a mug.
Then, add the milk, pumpkin and vanilla to the mug and whisk until the batter is smooth.
Microwave the cake for 2 minutes. Then, top the whole thing with chocolate chips and dig in!
- Don't have pumpkin pie spice? Use cinnamon instead.
- Want to switch it up? Try using white chocolate chips.
- Sweetener: I found brown sugar to work best, but cane sugar works too. Can also use maple syrup instead, though if you do that, I'd only use 2 tbsp milk.
