When I first decided to do a mug muffin a day I think I was going to do one every day for a month. Since that decision, I have had an epiphany.....I cannot do a mug muffin a day for a month, if for no other reason than shear weight. And I'm talking about the lb kind that attaches itself to your stomach, hips, thighs, butt, etc. I have put myself and my 'girlish' figure out there for a test drive of mug muffins and this is my last daily post. Don't get me wrong. It was a fun ride while it lasted...and every now and then I'll take another recipe for a test spin and when I do I promise I'll post those results too.
What better way to end my daily posts than with PUMPKIN SPICE (with streusel topping, I might add). I know that it's fall now and everyone has been craving all things pumpkin and 'fall' - so here's the best for last!!
As with all my trials I start with my base recipe (see day 1). To that, I added 1 Tbsp of Pumpkin puree. Yep, that's' it. Although I think you could add another Tbsp if you want even more pumpkin taste.
I also upped the amount of spice from the last spiced mug muffin I made. This one I used 1/2 tsp allspice, 1/2 tsp cinnamon and 1/4 tsp ginger.
This is the pumpkin puree I used. Unfortunately, I only used 1 Tbsp of pumpkin, so I will have to put the rest in the fridge, or freezer...or use it up some other way.
Guess what this is?! STREUSEL!!!! So to every wonderful pumpkin dessert one must add streusel! Quick and easy streusel recipe. 2 Tbsp flour, 1 Tbsp brown sugar, 1 tsp cinnamon, and 1 Tbsp cold butter. Mix the dry ingredients together and cut in the cold butter - or use your fingers to mush it all together.
When done it's moist crumbly goodness.
Dump the streusel mixture on top of the mug muffin batter and microwave. I microwaved this for just a little longer than normal...1 minute 50 seconds.
This is what it looked like right out of the microwave. Can you see the steam coming off of it? It was probably the best mug muffin of them all. The extra spices were perfect. The texture was perfect. 'IT' was just perfect.
Be assured that this was the piece de resistance of my week of mug muffin experiments. And what a way to end it! O.M.G....it is sooooooo yummy! Moist, flavorful....well, perfect. I highly suggest you get on it and try this one out!
