A variation on the chocolate version.  You’ll need a spoon, a mug, a tablespoon, and a microwave.

2 tablespoons butter or margarine

3 tablespoons of sugar

A pinch of baking powder

A pinch of pumpkin pie spice

2 tablespoons of water

6 tablespoons of flour

Place the butter in your mug and melt in the microwave on high heat for 30 seconds.  Add the sugar, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice, mixing well.  Add the water and stir.  Add the flour slowly, a couple of tablespoons at a time, until a smooth batter is formed.  Scrape the batter down off the sides and microwave on high for 1 minute.  Eat and enjoy!

To make it into a real pumpkin spice cake, remove 2 tablespoons of flour and replace with 2 tablespoons of cooked or canned pumpkin.
