Microwave Pumpkin Mug Cake

Microwave Pumpkin Mug Cake

Microwave Pumpkin Mug Cake

Pumpkin mug cake that is made in minutes and tastes like everything of fall you love, is heavenly all by itself. But adding some Sugar-Free Maple Cream Frosting between those layers of perfectly moist pumpkin cake is even better!

I don’t know who it was who dreamed up the idea for mug cakes made in minutes in the microwave, but whoever it was, I am eternally grateful! Baking instructions are included below if you’re not into using a microwave.

Quick Pumpkin Mug Cake

I’m a busy homeschooling mom who runs a full time business from home. I don’t have a whole lot of time on my hands to make beautiful traditional cakes and I have very few on my blog as a result. I only make traditional, large portion cakes for birthdays and holidays and that is it.

One of the biggest reasons is I have a problem with portion control. Once it’s there sitting on the counter or in the fridge I can not seem to control myself with desserts. Hence the mug cake made for people like me.

I think the orginial mug cake idea was probably made for just one single serving. And I have a bunch of them on my blog because that’s how I roll.

Make it. Eat it. Forget about it. No more going back for seconds because there isn’t any. That works for me.

But it’s also a good idea for my whole family. My children have got that sweet tooth like their momma. They need portion control just like I do. In comes my idea for mug cakes made for more than one. More like 2-4 depending on your portion control issues. ??

Layered Mug Cake

Make two perfect little mug cakes. Make frosting. Layer just like you would for a regular large cake. The first time I tried this idea was for my hubby. It was a Red Velvet Valentine’s Couple’s Mug Cake and it was what has gotten me to love the whole layering mug cake idea.

I’ve been on a crazy mission ever since making these layered mug cakes!

Slice into 4 sections. I get a piece and each of my 3 kids get a piece.

Afternoon time once school is done, this is the perfect little snack. No sugar, not a whole lot of calories so it won’t ruin their dinner and it’s made in minutes. Nothing sweeter to a mom like me then some extra time on my hands instead of slaving in the kitchen making cake!

Brenda, I’m sure someone must have remarked on this earlier, but the print button on the Sugar-Free Pumpkin Spice Maple Cream Layered Mug Cake recipe doesn’t work.

This forces you to print 23 pages or cut and paste 4 pages for the recipe into Word.

Not a good choice.

Other than that I love the site and the recipes.

I’ve made some of the mousses, and my wife who’s sugar free and a celiac besides loves them.

I’m a hero thanks to you (btw, her name is Brenda also).

The Best Healthy Fast Food Options

Fast-food stores are plentiful and fast food has the reputation of being unhealthy, while an increasing number of large chains are adding more nutritious options to their menus.

Sockets that allow more customization of orders tend to have lower calorie or more feeder selections. However, there are currently healthy options on the menu of the largest fast-food chains.

In this article, we'll look at the overall calorie, fat and saturated fat content to find some of the healthiest options that seven big fast-food chains have to offer.

Note, however, that calories and fat are only two aspects of how healthy a meal is fed. If a person eats only fast food, it is not possible to get the necessary nutrients such as vitamins and fiber.

1. Subway

Sandwich with cheese and vegetables

One person can customize Subway sandwiches to choose healthy fillings.

Metro specialize in deli style sandwiches or "sub". As a person can customize every "sub", Subway can be one of the healthiest healthy fast-food chains.

Some of the best sandwich options are on the Subway's Fresh Fit menu. The 6-inch Turkey Breast sandwich with nine wheat bread contains 250 calories and 3 grams of fat, including 0.5 g of saturated fat.

A healthy vegetarian option, Veggie Delite in nine wheat bread. This "bottom" contains only 2 g calories, does not contain 2 g total fat and saturated fat. It also has one of the lowest sodium levels (salt) compared to other sandwiches.

Subway also offers salads that can be a low-calorie alternative to a sandwich. All salads include lettuce, tomatoes, spinach, onions, cucumbers, green peppers and olives.

2. Taco Bell

Taco Bell is another great fast-food chain with a variety of healthy options. The ability to personalize each order allows people to choose more vegetable-like nutrients.

According to Taco Bell's website, three-quarters of its menus are under 500 calories. Some of the lowest calorie options are the Fresco menu, which uses regular sauce and cheese instead of vegetable based salsa.

One of the healthiest options is Chicken Soft Taco. Each taco contains about 170 calories, 8 g fat, containing only 3 g of saturated fat.

Bean Burrito is a vegetarian option containing 11 g fat, 380 calories, including 4 g of saturated fat.

3. Chipotle

Vegetable burritos

Vegetarian options are lower in fat than meat options.

Chipotle is a Mexican-style chain that specializes in tacos and burritos. Similar to Subway and Taco Bell, Chipotle allows people to customize their meals to include healthy choices.

Healthy options are burritos or white rice instead of white rice. In a chicken bowl bowl containing fresh tomato salsa and brown rice, there are 415 calories, 13 g fat and 4 g saturated fat.

For a lower calorie, vegetarian option, people can choose a plate of bean curd, brown rice and a sofritas patty with lettuce. It contains 365 calories, 10 g fat and 1.5 g saturated fat. Adding sauce will increase the number of calories.

4. McDonald's

McDonald's had the reputation of being unhealthy, but they recently reaffirmed themselves to offer a variety of fresh and nutritious ingredients. Some of these changes may be cosmetics, while McDonald's has better options.

Fillet-O-Fish contains 390 calories and 4 g of saturated fat from 19 g of total fat. Bacon Ranch Grilled Chicken Salad contains only 320 calories and 6 g of saturated fat from a total of 14 g.

5. Burger King

Burger King is one of the largest burger chains in the United States, but has a limited number of healthy options. But some choices are a little healthier than others.

It contains a normal, simple hamburger, 10 g total fat, 3.5 g saturated fat, and 240 calories. Grilled Chicken Sandwich contains 470 calories, 3.5 g saturated fat and 19 g fat.

BK Veggie Burger can be a healthier option among these examples. Contains 2,5 g of saturated fat, 390 calories and 17 g of fat.

6. Wendy

Baked potato with knife, sour cream and cheese filling on plate

Baked potatoes can be a healthy fast-food option.

Wendy is another common fast-food chain that allows people to personalize their orders to make their choices healthier.

The menu of the chain is not abundant in healthy options, but some meals are able to customize to lower the calorie content.

Salads are also available, and if a person chooses some of the half-size salad choices, they can stay below 500 calories.
