  • 6 tablespoons yellow cake mix
  • 2 tablespoons pumpkin puree

  1. Grease the mason jars well with a non-stick cooking spray. These squat mason jars work perfectly for this recipe. Add all of the above ingredients to the mason jar. Each list of ingredients makes one cake.

  2. Mix with a fork right in the mason jar until well combined.

  3. Cook for 6o seconds in the microwave. Use caution when removing as the jars will be hot.

  5. Dive right into this delectable cake. One jar is a great single serving dessert. You might even want two after you try it! This cake is moist, delicious, and just speaks fall!

  6. Grab your mason jars and make this microwave pumpkin cake in a jar. No one will ever guess just how easy this dessert is to make and that you don’t have to heat up your kitchen to bake it!
