Banana Choc Chip Mug Cake

A quick and delicious treat that is less than $1.50 per serve!


  • 1 ripe banana, mashed (reserving some slices for the top)
  • 1 TBS milk
  • 1 TBS salted melted butter
  • 1 TBS brown sugar
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 large egg
  • 3 TBS flour
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 2 TBS dark chips


Spray a microwave-safe mug with cooking spray.

In a mug, melt the butter in the microwave, for about 10 seconds.

Once melted, add the brown sugar, egg, milk, and mashed banana and stir. Once incorporated, add the flour with baking powder. Stir until combined then top with chocolate chips.

Microwave for approx. 2 minutes.

Let rest to cool in the microwave for approx. 5 minutes before adding sliced banana or desired toppings.


For the best results use an overripe banana.

Placing a plate under the mug will make cleaning up easier if it does end up overflowing.

If you don’t have flour + baking powder, you can use self-raising flower.

Microwave: every microwave is very different, so results may vary slightly. You may need to cook for 1 minute 45 seconds or 2 minutes 15 seconds. Start with 2 minutes.
