1/4 cup milk
1 tablespoon butter, melted
3 tablespoons granulated sugar

4 tablespoons pumpkin purée
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
3 tablespoons Nutella, divided


1.   Add the milk, sugar and melted butter to a microwave-safe mug (that holds at least 10-12 ounces) and whisk to combine.
2.   Add the flour and baking powder a little at a time.  Whisk until all of the lumps have disappeared.
