Topping ideas (optional)

  • 1 tbsp raisins Whatever you fancy really - it’s also great on its own! Some ideas: nutella (naughty), peanut butter, walnuts, almonds, coconut shavings, grated dark chocolate.


For the regular version

  • Slice the banana.
  • Using a bowl or large mug, melt the butter in the microwave for about 20 seconds. Then add the egg, sliced banana, flour, maple syrup, milk and baking powder. Give it a good whisk with a fork, hand blender or by using a food processor. Make sure the banana gets crushed.
  • Pop the mug or bowl into the microwave for 1 minute 30 seconds, using a 1000w microwave (adjust as appropriate for your microwave). Take it out, turn it round and give it another 1 minute blast. Use none, some or all of the toppings and enjoy!

Tips for making the perfect Banana Mug Cake

  • Use a very large mug and don’t overfill
  • If the cake is leaning to one side, stop cooking, turn and continue cooking
  • It’s easiest to mix all the ingredients in a separate bowl
  • Cook shorter times rather than overcooking - an overcooked cake isn’t what you want - you can always give it another ten seconds when needed
