Banana Mug Bread
This dessert mug cake is awesome with whipped cream or ice cream.
What you’ll need to create this masterpiece
1 tablespoon butter, melted OR 1 tablespoon of cooking oil
1 egg, beaten
1 tablespoon milk (can use regular, soy or nut)
1 very ripe banana, mashed
3 tablespoons of all purpose flour (make sure to scoop the flour out of the bag with a measuring spoon so you get enough!)
3 tablespoons brown sugar, lightly packed
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
You will need a 12 oz+ mug for this! I’m using a 14 oz mug. Any smaller than 12 oz and you risk running over the edges. Plus, it’s really hard to mix everything in a teeny mug.
Lets use butter. Throw the butter in the mug and pop it into the microwave for 15 seconds to let it melt.
Allow the mug to cool down until you can easily hold it. This will keep you from making scrambling eggs instead.
Add the milk first, then the eggs and mix everything together well with a fork.
Add the mashed banana into the mug and stir everything briskly, to mix well.
Add the flour, brown sugar and baking powder.
Mix this well with the fork again, break up any clumps. Just don’t mix it for too long or you’ll end up with a chewy cake. Microwave for 2 Minutes.
Recommend cooking :Cook the mug cake in the microwave for 1 minute at full power. Stand near the microwave to babysit it - if it starts to rise above the rim of the mug, open the door and let it fall. Once it’s fallen, close the door and begin cooking again.
After the first minute, check the top. If it’s still wet, put it in for an additional 30 seconds.
