ever find yourself with a major dessert craving? dessert is only 90 seconds away with this easy pumpkin mug brownie

ready in only 90 seconds and perfect for fall | easy pumpkin mug brownie made in the microwave

I don’t have a big sweet tooth, and usually if I have a craving, it’s for something salty like fries or chips.

But chances are good that if I do find myself with a major sugar craving, there is nothing sweet in the house. The kids are pretty good at making the sweets disappear almost instantly. Even without chocolate, the gooey apple snickedoodle bars didn’t last more than a day.ย

I do however always have flour, sugar, cocoa powder, and now that it’s fall, pumpkin in the pantry. Those pantry staples along with some butter and milk, a microwave, and 90 seconds are all you need to make a fast and delicious dessert for one.

Microwaves are not all created equally, so cooking times will vary. Check your brownie after 45 seconds; if you don’t like it fudgy in the center, cook for another 30 – 45 seconds – but don’t cook for more than 90 seconds, or your brownie will be like rubber.
