Mug cakes are great because I can make one serving and avoid the temptation to binge! They’re also made with just a handful of basic ingredients and take only a few minutes to throw together. There are endless variations. This banana cake version is delicious. It’s gooey and a little pudding-like in texture. It satisfies my sweet tooth and is a special treat. In future posts, I plan to share recipes for chocolate, snickerdoodle, and peanut butter versions.

Microwave Banana Mug Cake
Recipe from Love Swah, modified a little by me
1 tablespoon butter, melted (or vegetable oil)
1 tablespoon milk
1 ripe banana, mashed
3 tablespoons plain flour
3 tablespoons brown sugar
½ teaspoon baking powder
Put butter into a large coffee mug and microwave for 10 seconds to melt. Whisk in egg and milk with a fork. Add mashed banana and continue stirring until well mixed. Add flour, sugar, and baking powder and stir with the fork until just combined. Microwave for 1 minute and 30 seconds on full power. Allow to sit in the microwave at least one minute after it is done cooking. Then let it cool a few minutes on the counter. The cake should rise but still be gooey in the middle.
