This gooey banana mug cake is the perfect treat to cook yourself when you’re feeling a little hungry. It’s also a great quick and easy dessert that you can quickly cook up after dinner.

Banana Mug Cake

The mug cake is so delicious it’s hard to resist making it every night. It only takes just a few simple steps, a few ingredients and a minute to cook. The result is a sweet cake that is incredibly moist, and it’s the perfect treat to give yourself after a long day of hard work.

Usually, you can enjoy these tasty cakes just on their own, but if you want to take it to the next level, then a scoop of vanilla ice cream goes perfectly on top. It also goes great with some hot custard, but that involves more work.

One serving of this banana cake will only feed one person unless you’re not feeling very hungry then you can maybe feed two. If you want to cook for two then just double the recipe and split it across two mugs. You may need to adjust the cooking time.
