  • Microwave at high power until cake has risen and is cooked through, 2 1/2 to 3 minutes. Remove and allow to cool slightly before eating.

Cook's Notes:

If you cannot find vanilla sugar, add 1 or 2 drops of vanilla extract instead.

If you prefer not to eat out of the mug, run a knife around the sides of the mug, and tip the still-warm cake onto a saucer.

I would have given 5 stars for taste but gave 4 due to my small adjustments to the recipe. I always keep frozen bananas for smoothies so decided to try this mug cake. I used only 1 Tbsp brown sugar 1 packet Stevia sweetener and regular vegetable oil instead of olive oil. It was moist & had good banana flavor; and was plenty sweet.. I would make it again.

Sorry but I can not say that this was anything that I would make again. I have made other mug cakes before and some have been OK. Thought I'd use up a lonely banana on my counter and try this recipe. Glad I wasn't hungry! Read More

This cake was weird because every bite you took stuck to your teeth. It also didn't have enough banana flavor. I mixed forever and the cake still tasted like flour. I will not make this again. Read More

It doesn't have a lot of flavor and the texture is not very appetizing. I did add chocolate chips to it which made it somewhat better. Read More
