Healthy Single-Serving Pumpkin Buckwheat Microwave Cake

Healthy Single-Serving Pumpkin Buckwheat Microwave Cake

Don’t forget your baking powder, you will make silly kitchen mistakes.

When you make silly kitchen mistakes, you will make super dense and unpleasant cakes.

When you make super dense and unpleasant cakes, you will get angry.

When you get angry, you swear off baking forever.

Don’t swear off baking forever and remember your baking powder!

That’s the lesson I learned last Friday.  I was in a huge rush out the door so I quickly made a microwave cake since they take just a couple minutes to make and a few more minutes to “bake.”  When you’re mixing a batter as fast as you can, like you’re competing on Cupcake Wars for $10,000 or something, you are bound to forget an ingredient.  An important ingredient at that.  I (of course) forgot the baking powder and I was forced to eat a rubbery and dense cake for breakfast.  I was starving!

The next day I made the microwave cake again but this time with the baking powder.  It was absolutely delicious!  This single-serving pumpkin cake is so good that I’ve made it for breakfast allll weekend long, and then on Monday and again this morning  😉

  1. This looks great! Oil and sugar-free too! Calling out for a slathering of almond butter :)

  2. Hello!

    If I wanted to bake, instead of microwave, how long and at what temperature would you suggest?

    Thanks!

      Audra-
      I haven’t tried baking this but I would probably recommend 350 degrees Fahrenheit for 25-40 minutes… sorry, I’m not sure how long it will take! It will be done with the surface springs back when tapped :)

  3. This looks so good! i want to make this… now! (and it only takes 5 mins right?!) but i don’t have any buckwheat flour… any substitutions that might work? Thanks!! :)

  11. Oh my God. This is beautiful. Thank you for sharing your recipes. It is so hard to find healthy, tasty recipes that are gluten free and dairy free. YUM YUM. I just ate the whole lot. I substituted Chia seeds for flaxseed but tasted great all the same.
