Banana Mug Cake

Banana Mug Cake (

What happens when you don’t have the time or effort to make a proper cake? Make a mug cake! Mug cakes are a genius invention and whoever invented them I take my hat off to them. You can make so many different types of mug cakes, just by altering a few ingredients; that’s what makes them so easy to make. For this mug cake, I decided to try and make it as healthy as possible and use a banana as the main ingredient. It adds an amazing texture and has a really strong flavour.


  • 1 small banana
  • 1 small egg
  • 5 tsp of flour
  • 3 tsp of milk
  • 3 tsp of butter
  • 2 tsp of raisins
  • 1 tsp of cinnamon
  • 1 tsp of baking powder


  1. Mash the banana in your mug with a fork until smooth.
  2. Crack in the egg, pour in the milk and slice in the butter and then mix well.
  3. Add the flour, raisins and cinnamon and finally the baking powder. Make sure to add the baking powder last and afterwards stir.
  4. Once all the ingredients are combined, put in the microwave at a high temperature until the mug cake is fully cooked.

I topped it with golden syrup to make it a little sweeter but you can choose to top it with whatever you want.
