Craving a pumpkin dessert late at night? Since no one has time to make a pumpkin pie in the middle of the week, we are grateful that someone out there invented baking dishes and mugs. You can make your own healthy, vegan pumpkin cake with just a microwave in your very own kitchen. This recipe makes just enough for one hungry person or 2 people who like to share. If it was up to me though, I would eat it all myself.
