This is my first attempt at a serious blog. I am very much into trying new things in life and telling others of my experiences. I am not just about food, tho that is one of my major passions, I am about everything in life...crafting, gadgets, etc. I will try things and post the outcome here, to help others make educated purchasing choices so that no one has to waste money on a product, not knowing if it is good, or just another piece of junk. Come with me on my journey!

this will be one dessert i make for tomorrow: pumpkin spice latte mug cakes
3 tablespoons brewed espresso coffee or very strong coffee, room temperature
1 tablespoon canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/4 cup sugar
1/3 cup Original Bisquick® mix
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
Pinch of salt
Whipped cream, for serving
Ground cinnamon, for serving
In a small bowl, whisk together the melted butter, egg, espresso or coffee, and pumpkin puree. Add the sugar, Bisquick baking mix, pumpkin pie spice, and salt. Mix until incorporated, batter may be lumpy.
Divide the batter between two microwave-safe mugs. Place in the microwave and bake on high (100 percent power) for 2 minutes. Remove from microwave and let cool a few minutes before serving.
If you’ve never made a mug cake before, you are in for a treat. You can satisfy your cake craving in 5 minutes. Simply whisk together a few simple ingredients, pop it in the microwave for a few minutes and you’re done! Top this easy pumpkin- and coffee-scented cake with a swirl of whipped cream and sprinkling of cinnamon to complete the latte look.
