Ready to check out this Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mug Cake?? This is being shared by ‘Or so she says…’ monthly contributor, Cathy, from Lemon Tree Dwelling.
Hi again, friends! It’s Cathy from Lemon Tree Dwelling….back here today to share a fun fall kids recipe as part of this month’s blog hop. Living in the Midwest, the change of seasons is one of my favorite things ever….and just this week , it seems that we are making the transition from summer to fall. Time to bring out those pumpkin recipes….!
This Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Mug Cake is perfect for fall…..and not just because of the pumpkin, but because it’s a great way for kids to get involved in the kitchen! With the start of the school year, my kids want nothing more than a little extra time with mom. What better place to get it than the room I clearly spend the most time in??
All it takes is a little measuring, pouring, and stirring…..followed by a quick 3 minutes in the microwave…..and voila! The cake is ready! No waiting patiently while it bakes….and, even better, it’s something that kids can do almost entirely on their own.
Perfect for a dessert or an afternoon snack. Perfect for kids! And SO delicious! So…..are you ready for fall? Are you ready for fall fun with your kids? I know I am………bring it on!!
