My Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake is perfect for a fall evening (or afternoon... or morning ;) ) when you are craving a delicious, moist, perfectly spiced slice of pumpkin cake or bread, but don't have the time or motivation to bake a whole loaf or cake.  You can whip this up in literally less than 4 minutes, folks.  And it is a perfectly portioned taste of fall for one.  (Also good for those of us trying to not to overdo it on the fall baked sweets! Built-in portion control, my friends.)

I originally shared my recipe for Pumpkin Spice Mug Cake in October of last year. And because this is another Frugal Foodie Mama Recipe Makeover, here is a one of the photos I used in the original post...




I knew I had to remake this recipe because that photo was not doing this delicious and quick recipe proper justice.  

I did tweak a few things in the recipe itself.  Swapped out the white sugar for brown, but nothing too major.
