Keto pumpkin mug cake is the answer to your pumpkin cravings! 

This easy keto pumpkin mug cake has the most fantastic pumpkin flavor and is the perfect simple fall dessert that you can enjoy in just minutes! It’s made with the ideal amount of pumpkin so that you get the full pumpkin flavor, not just a hint of pumpkin. And the ingredients in this recipe make for a beautifully textured and moist cake.

If the quick cook aspect didn’t get ya, you’ll also be thrilled to know you only have to get one “bowl” (or mug or ramekin) dirty for easy clean up!

So easy to make!

My favorite part about this keto pumpkin mug cake is how easy it is to make and it’s pretty cool that you can bake it in the microwave. You don’t have to turn on the oven and it’s the perfect single-serving, though you can of course double it up to make multiple mug cakes at once. You’ll want to add 30 seconds to the cooking time when having multiple cakes in the microwave.

Honestly, I’m a little late to the mug cake trend. Until recently, I hadn’t had a microwave in years. If I’d known keto mug cakes were this amazingly delicious and so easy to make, I might have got a microwave sooner. 😄

My Hip sidekick Jenna made this keto pumpkin mug cake and here’s what she had to say:

“This is so fun and easy to make! I love that I can just make a quick keto dessert for one and in about 2 minutes, plus the kids loved this concept too. And it couldn’t be easier just mixing it all up right in the mug and popping in the microwave. Easy peasy!”
