Pumpkin Spice Keto Mug Cake

Pumpkin Spice Keto Mug Cake Recipe

Pumpkin Spice Keto Mug Cake


  • 3 tablespoons almond flour
  • 1 tablespoon coconut flour
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened almond milk
  • 2 tablespoons keto-friendly sweetener (such as erythritol or monk fruit)
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin spice (a blend of cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • A pinch of salt

Optional Toppings:

  • Keto-friendly whipped cream
  • Chopped nuts
  • A sprinkle of cinnamon


Prepare the Mug Cake Batter:

  1. Choose a Microwave-Safe Mug:
    • Select a microwave-safe mug with a capacity of at least 12 ounces to allow for rising during cooking.
  2. Combine Dry Ingredients:
    • In the mug, whisk together almond flour, coconut flour, keto-friendly sweetener, baking powder, pumpkin spice, and a pinch of salt.
  3. Add Wet Ingredients:
    • Add pumpkin puree, egg, unsweetened almond milk, and vanilla extract to the dry ingredients in the mug. Mix well until a smooth batter forms.

Microwave the Mug Cake:

  1. Microwave:
    • Microwave the mug on high for 90 seconds to 2 minutes, or until the cake has risen and is set in the center. Cooking times may vary based on your microwave’s wattage.
  2. Check for Doneness:
    • Check the doneness by inserting a toothpick into the center. If it comes out clean or with a few moist crumbs (not wet batter), the mug cake is ready.

Optional Toppings and Serving:

  1. Cool Slightly:
    • Allow the mug cake to cool for a minute before handling.
  2. Add Toppings:
    • Optionally, top the Pumpkin Spice Keto Mug Cake with keto-friendly whipped cream, chopped nuts, or a sprinkle of cinnamon for extra flavor and texture.
  3. Serve and Enjoy:
    • Enjoy your Pumpkin Spice Keto Mug Cake directly from the mug. It’s a quick and satisfying treat!


  • Adjust the sweetness level by adding more or less keto-friendly sweetener to suit your taste preferences.
  • Customize the spice blend by adjusting the amount of pumpkin spice or adding additional spices like cinnamon or nutmeg.
  • This mug cake is a single-serving recipe, but you can easily multiply the ingredients to make more servings if needed.
  • Ensure that your pumpkin puree is unsweetened and not pumpkin pie filling, which contains added sugars.
