Servings 1 cake


  • 1 ½ tbsp butter Conconut oil can be subbed
  • 3 tbsp pumkin puree
  • 2 tsp honey Use 1 tsp for more of a less sweet pumpkin bread flavor.
  • ¼ tsp pure vanilla extract
  • tsp lemon juice
  • 1 large egg
  • 2 tbsp almond flour
  • 2 tbsp coconut flour
  • ¼ tsp baking soda
  • ½ tsp cinnamon
  • ½ tsp ground nutmeg
  • ¼ tsp ground ginger
  • ¼ tsp ground cloves
  • 1 tbsp raisins optional
  • 1 tbsp chopped walnuts or pecans optional


  1. Preheat oven to 350°F

  2. Rub a little melted coconut oil or soft butter on the inside of your baking dish if you want to be able to remove your cake before eating it.

  3. Melt butter in microwave or on stove

  4. Add melted butter, pumkin puree, honey, vanilla, lemon juice, and egg to a small mixing bowl or a 2-cup glass measuring cup

  5. Whisk to combine

  6. Add almond flour, coconut flour, baking soda, and spices to mixture

  7. Stir until well combined

  8. Stir in raisins and walnuts if using

  9. Pour batter into small baking dish - this could fit in a mug if you have one that is oven-safe

  10. Bake for 15 - 20 minutes until toothpick inserted in middle or one of the thick sides of the bundt pan comes out clean

  11. Cool in baking dish on wire rack for 10 -15 minutes

  12. I like to remove from the baking dish, but you could leave it in there to eat if you like. If removing from mini-bundt pan - carefully run a butter knife around edge. Turn pan over and gently tap the bottom of the pan with the knife. The cake should easily pop out.

Recipe Notes

Note - if you want to do a microwave mug cake: Mix all ingredients in mug and microwave for 90 seconds to 2 minutes.
