It was delicious! The only changes I made are adding 1/2 tsp of baking powder and using pumpkin pie spice (about 3/4 tsp) instead of all the spices. I served it with a little whipped cream on top. Also I mixed the dough in a measuring bowl and divided it into 2 mugs. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I thought it was odd that the recipe didn’t list a leavening agent so I added some baking powder to the batter. The next time I make this I will put it in tall custard cups, making smaller individual desserts. The flavor is excellent and the texture was wonderful. Read More

I really didn't enjoy it. Maybe it just needs some tweaks or its just me. Read More

Delicious! Definitely need the 1/2 tsp baking powder & a big mug! I tried using the spices listed & tried another with my pumpkin pie spice & found i liked the pumpkin pie spice better, but try both. They're both delicious. One more addition if you'd like is to make powdered sugar & milk frosting, then drizzle it over the top. Enjoy! Read More

This is a great recipe. My husband is never fond of the mug cakes but pumpkin is his sweet spot and he loved it. Will for sure make again. I did add 1/2 tsp baking soda and served with whip cream. Next time I will add 1/4 cup chocolate chips and maybe nuts. Read More

It came out like a lump of dough even after 4 minutes in the microwave. I kept putting it back in because it wasn’t done. Read More

So awesome but add 1/2 tsp baking powder. Also if you cook 2 at once it will take about 5 minutes. Read More
