I am a big fan of mug cakes!
They are the perfect treat for when you are wanting a sweet treat that's a bit more interesting than some fruit and nuts, don't want to cave in and eat a "treat" that is full of nasties and don't want to spend ages in the kitchen to make it happen. Over the past few years, I made a few different flavour combinations, and the first one I shared with you was my Raspberry Vanilla Mug Cake.
This time I am excited to be sharing my Banana Mug Cake recipe.
I am absolutely loving this at the moment - it is super easy to prepare, made in a microwave, with the end result being a moist mini banana cake.
As the name suggests, it is usually made in a mug, however I also like to make them in ramekins. Just one word of advice, if you do use a ramekin, make sure you handle with a tea towel or gloves, as the ramekin will most likely be very hot after coking.
I have a few more mug cake flavour combinations that I will bringing you over the coming months. So stay tuned for those, but in the meantime I hope you enjoy my latest dessert creation.
- 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
- 3 tablespoons coconut flour
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 tablespoon coconut oil, melted
- 1 tablespoon raw honey
- 1 small banana, mashed
- 1 large egg
- 2 tablespoons almond or coconut milk (or your preferred milk)
Add the dry ingredients (cinnamon, coconut flour, baking powder) to a large mug or 250ml ramekin and mix. Next, add the melted coconut oil and honey; combining with the dry ingredients. Then, add the remainder of the wet ingredients; mixing well to combine. (The mixture can get a bit stuck on the sides, so make sure you scrap the sides down)
Microwave for 2-3 minutes or until cooked through (the mug cake should be soft and springy to touch).
