To cut down on cleanup, mix the batter in a mug, and then pour half of it into the other mug.

To make your own pumpkin pie spice, mix 3 tablespoons ground cinnamon, 2 teaspoons ground ginger, 2 teaspoons ground nutmeg, 1 1/2 teaspoons allspice and 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cloves. Store in an airtight container in the pantry for up to several months.


  • 2 Tablespoons butter, melted and cooled
  • 1/3 Cup Original Bisquick mix
  • 1 egg
  • 1/4 Cup sugar

  • 1 Tablespoon canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • 1/2 Teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • Pinch of salt
  • Whipped cream, for serving
  • Ground cinnamon, for serving


In a small bowl, beat melted butter, egg, espresso and pumpkin with a whisk.

Add the sugar, Bisquick mix, pumpkin pie spice and salt.

Mix until incorporated; batter may be lumpy.

Divide batter between 2 microwavable mugs.

Microwave uncovered on High 2 minutes.

Cool a few minutes before serving.
