Remember when I said that my ketogenic carrot cake mug cake was my favorite keto mug cake?
Well, forget what I said.

THIS baby right here just swooped right in and replaced my absolute favorite ketogenic mug cake.

Don’t get me wrong, the carrot cake keto mug cake is still absolutely fabulous, but I’ve never eaten something on the ketogenic diet that tasted so similar to the “real thing” than this Pumpkin Pie Keto Mug Cake.

I tried the first batch a few days ago and I was blown away with the result.
It was super moist, sweet and comforting!
Just like real pumpkin pie.

Seriously, you have to try this recipe if you like Pumpkin Pie!
It’s completely guilt-free: no sugar, low carb and high in fiber!

PUMPKIN PIE KETO MUG CAKE: INGREDIENTS NEEDED

 
What I absolutely love about mug cakes is, that I always have the ingredients needed at home.
And if you’re in the ketogenic diet, you probably also have them at home.
 

(You can find the exact amounts needed on the recipe card at the end of this post!)
 

  • finely ground coconut flour
  • finely ground almond flour
  • erythritol: my absolute favorite keto-friendly sweetener!
    It doesn’t spike your blood sugar, it’s completely safe and it has a very natural sweet taste.

    ☝︎ Because of its’ natural origin, I do consider erythritol to be paleo-friendly.

    You can use other keto-friendly sweeteners as well, but keep in mind that you may have to use more or less of your chosen sweetener.
    I recommend to taste a tiny amount of your cake batter to see if it’s sweet enough if you use something other than erythritol.

  • butter coconut oil: I usually use melted coconut oil for my recipes but this recipe screamed for butter instead!
    If you’re eating paleo, use coconut oil.
  • eggs: one whole egg.
    I recommend buying pasteured eggs – those contain more beneficial Omega-3 Fatty Acids!
  • almond milk: unsweetened
  • baking powder: look for a gluten-free version without corn starch for paleo-friendly option or make your own one!
  • pumpkin puree: I always recommend to make your own one and avoid canned pumpkin puree. It’s fresher, more nutritious, more flavorful and super easy to make.
    Simply chop up some pumpkin and cook the pieces with a bit of water (approx. 5 tbsp for 1/4 of a hokkaido pumpkin or butternut squash until fork tender. Puree with a hand blender and you’re done.
  • seasoning: a pinch of salt, vanilla extract & pumpkin spice
  •  
     
    It’s up to you if you want to add cream cheese frosting as well, but I highly recommend it!
    It makes the keto mug cake super moist and delicious and you can’t even tell anymore that you’re eating a keto-friendly cake.

    What you’ll need for the cream cheese frosting:

  • full fat cream cheese
  • erythritol
  • unsweetened almond milk
  • a pinch of pumpkin spice
  •  


     
     

    HOW TO MAKE YOUR OWN PUMPKIN SPICE:

     
    If you don’t have pumpkin spice, you can easily make your own one.

    Mix the following spices:

    ☞ 1 tsp cinnamon
    ☞ ½ tsp ginger (ground)
    ☞ ½ tsp allspice (ground)
    ☞ ¼ tsp cloves (ground)
    ☞ ¼ tsp nutmeg (ground)

     

    HOW TO MAKE THIS PUMPKIN PIE KETO MUG CAKE:

     

    Start by mixing all of the ingredients and spices for the mug cake itself in a small bowl.
    Whisk everything until you get a very smooth and chunk-free dough.
    It’s especially important that you don’t have any flour chunks in your dough.

    If you don’t have a microwave and want to prepare this mug cake in an oven, preheat your oven at this point to 350°F/180°C.

    Continue by greasing a microwave- or oven-safe mug with some tasteless plant oil or oil spray (I almost always use coconut oil, avocado oil or butter).

    Add the cake batter to your mug and microwave it for about 60 seconds.
    The baking time in your microwave can be highly variable depending on the microwave you’re using, the size of your mug cake and your mug.
    I recommend, that you start baking it for 50-60 seconds in your microwave and test it before overcooking it. You can always place it back into your microwave if it isn’t done yet.
    Test the cake by pricking it in the center with a toothpick – if the toothpick comes out “clean”, your cake is done!

    If you’re baking it in your oven, place the mug in your oven for 10-15 minutes. Like with the microwave version, test if it’s done with the toothpick test.

    While your keto mug cake cools off a bit, mix the ingredients for the cream cheese frosting.
    Add the cream cheese frosting on top of your ketogenic pumpkin pie mug cake, sprinkle a pinch of cinnamon on top of the frosting for the final “touch” and enjoy!
