  1. Combine flour, brown sugar, white sugar, and vanilla sugar in a large microwave-safe mug. Add egg and mix well. Stir in oil, milk, mashed banana, and pecans. Mix well to incorporate all the flour.
  2. 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.
