Banana Mug Cake

Have you jumped on the mug cake train yet? If not your really should. They are easy, tasty and perfect for a single serving dessert, which is great when you have a husband who has an aversion to sweets. Seriously, I don’t think he is from this planet and I can’t comprehend how we even got together. Opposites attract I suppose.

This Banana Mug Cake is my go to dessert when I don’t feel like making a huge pan of something or if I get that sweets craving at those inconvenient time! Which seems to be pretty much all day for me. I don’t stop craving sweets. Ugh…

Banana Mug Cake

This cake can be whipped up in about 3 minutes and is filling. Since it has bananas, does that qualify it as being healthy?? I sure hope so, because I could live off these bad boys. My non sweets loving husband tasted mine and he HAD to have me make him one. I made mine in these cute little ramekin bowls that I had. You can make these in a mug as well. Don’t use too small because they will overflow. It does puff up but don’t let that scare you, it will deflate once it cools!

Do you have 3 minutes to spare? Can you mix things in a cup? This recipe calls fo simple ingredients that you already have in your pantry to begin with, so it’s great! You can’t go wrong with this. Plus the extra special part is that it has a brown sugar glaze…um yes. Glazes make everything better, especially with banana!! You’ll thank me later.

  1. I cannot wait to try this! There are times, especially in the winter, I just want a little single serve dessert that I can whip up real quick without making a huge mess! This seems perfect for that!!

  2. It is delicious! Just the right size for single serving! My hubby & I are full-time RVers and just right for two (I made 2!) to make sweet in our microwave! YUMMY! Thank you!

  3. This was SO insanely good!!! The glaze was so good too we added a bit more brown sugar just to make more caramel like but wow! Thank you!!

    1. I’m so happy you liked it Sarah!! It’s one of our faves for sure!! I’m gonna have to add more brown sugar the next time I make it because I’m sure the more caramel would be awesome 🙂

    1. Hi Jack sorry for the long wait in replying. Eggs don’t incorporate naturally so beating them lightly helps them mix into the ingredients well, hope that answered your question 🙂
