Autumn time is pumpkin time. In addition to hearty recipes, the aromatic plant can also be ideally used in sweet dishes. The classics: The good old pumpkin spice latte (the recipe is here) or a juicy pumpkin pie. Not too sweet, pleasantly spicy and super aromatic, the latter is the classic of the season.

However, the mug cake variant offers serious competition to the original recipe from the USA. Prepared in just five minutes, the juicy dessert is suitable for spontaneous hunger in between meals. Another advantage: you only need seven ingredients, a cup and a microwave to prepare the quick cake. It can also be baked in the oven; it only takes a fraction longer. Enjoyed steaming hot – straight from the cup – and the spicy pastries taste particularly good. Served with cinnamon and a little cream, the motto is: Enjoy your meal – and don’t burn yourself.

By the way: Prepared in the oven, the pumpkin cake from the cup takes about 10 to 15 minutes. To do this, put it in the oven at 180 degrees top/bottom heat and check the consistency with a wooden stick after 10 minutes. If no more dough sticks, the cake is ready.
