Gluten free pumpkin mug cake
I have not been able to bake for a while now so satisfying my sweet tooth have been a challenge. I figured since mug cakes don’t take much time I experimented a few days back and came up with this gluten free pumpkin mug cake that was superb!
Baking is one of my favorite things to do in the kitchen. I love cooking but because I have such a sweet tooth perhaps that is why I love baking much more.
While in school I hardly have any time to bake so I have to device sways to satisfy my sweet tooth so either I make thing that requires no baking or I have to make things that are super quick like this gluten free pumpkin mug cake.
Given the season, I wanted to make something that used pumpkin. I have not had a chance to utilize pumpkin much so I thought this would be the perfect time.
Besides using pumpkin puree for this dessert I also used Truvia Nectar. It was the perfect fit because not only I didn’t want the mug cake to be super sweet but because coconut flour absorbs so much liquid using Truvia Nectar was much better than just plain sugar.
Because this gluten free pumpkin mug cake was so easy to make I really want to start making other versions. I think a peanut butter chocolate one may be next so will see.
One thing I have to warn you about is that the time you may need to make this gluten free pumpkin mug cake may be different than mine. I have a 800 watts microwave so depending on the power of your microwave you many need less time. Just make sure that you keep an eye on it after 2 minutes because for me I needed almost 4 minutes to get the mug cake ready.
I hope you get to try this gluten free pumpkin mug cake recipe. If you like something sweet but don’t have the time for baking this may be the dessert for you.

I love mug cakes, and I can’t wait to try this!
I love baking, too! This looks delicious, and just a ***little*** too easy to put together — could be deliciously dangerous!

I just love a good mug cake! :) And it is awesome that this one is gluten free.
Yumminess….LOL is that a word? Love it because it is so easy and delightful. The chocolate sauce is the icing on the cake. I would love if you shares this at our link party today, Dishing It & Digging It. The party is live at 4:00 EST.
Oh my, this looks so delicious – and easy!
Mug cakes are the best – so easy! Love this gluten free version.
I would have to sneak a little extra chocolate drizzle!
Did you microwave each mug individually?
Some Great things to see here and I should try these home because these are some great dishes.
