For the vegan version


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


For the vegan version

  • Slice the banana.
  • Add the flour, maple syrup, baking soda, salt, milk, the oil, sliced banana, a pinch of cinnamon or vanilla and the hazelnuts into a mixing bowl. Blend well using a hand blender. Alternatively use a food processor, or even a fork can be used in a pinch. Make sure the banana gets crushed.
  • Use a tissue to wipe the olive oil around large mug and pour the dough in. Cook in the microwave for 1 minute and 40 seconds with a 1000w microwave (adjust as appropriate for your microwave). 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
