HEY! It’s MONDAY! Let’s break into a song!

Here’s the story of a Chocolate Mug Cake,
Who was bored of always being on her own.
She’d been baked and eaten just like all the others, yet always felt alone.
Till the one day when THIS lady had too much pumpkin,
AND she knew that it was much more than hunch,
That this combo must somehow come together,
That’s how this Pumpkin Chocolate Mug Cake became HER BRUNCH!

I always, ALWAYS belt out theme songs with my own words. Not just theme songs… all songs. You should hear my version of the Thong Song!
But, this is a family-friendly place, so we won’t go there. 😉

So, gurrrrl, I warned you – I have 16 cans of pumpkin puree to get through. I’m gonna pumpkin-us-out before the end of the season.

I have rearranged a few priorities in my life. Oh, no no – listening to the New Kids AND watching Friends-reruns is still at the top.
I’ve just decided to stick to serving-sizes. Since I can’t stop at a slice of cake, aaaand since I’m not sure how big that slice should be, I’ve decided to make all MY cakes in a mug. Just for those times when I feel like I need a cake and I want to eat it, too. 

Kale Smoothies have also reappeared in my life. All this pumpkin and chocolate love is going to murder my waistline – thank the LAWD for coat-season!

Are you looking at that photo wondering what the heck that white stuff is on it? It’s Whipped Cream. The good kind. The fancy kind. Kidding. It’s the kind that comes in a can… I ran out of heavy cream and had to use my husband’s canned-stash to make the cake look pretty-er. 

But, besides that. This cake is sort of totally amazing. It takes 2 minutes to prep and, like, one minute + few seconds to bake. That’s it. It’s just enough to satisfy that craving for a big slice of chocolate cake. And pumpkin.

I make mine in a 6-ounce ramekin, just to control myself, and if you cut all the ingredients in half, you can do the same. Portion control is my strength – you can trust me on this one 100%. 😀

    I just made this, moist, one of the better mug cakes I’ve tried. A bit too spicy for my mainly chocolate craving but does the trick. I topped mine with homemade salted caramel sauce and a dab of in a can (no shame) whipped cream. Thanks for sharing!

  2. Fudge (my brother makes it and I’ve never had the recipe) and cheesecake are the only uses for pumpkin allowed at my house. Ok … soup too cause I only use half a can for the cheesecake. A mug cake is a great fast recipe even if you had to use the canned whipped cream to decorate it.
