Banana Bread In A Mug - Stay At Home Mum

As always, with most cakes in mugs, you are better off using a large mug, combining the ingredients in another bowl or jug and pouring it into the mug. I keep batches of the dry ingredients pre-mixed in sandwich bags and add the wet ingredients when its time to bake.


  1. In a bowl, or in a large mug, combine the flour, sugars, salt, baking powder and egg and mix until just combined.

  2. Mix in vanilla, oil, milk and mashed banana.

  3. Pop into the microwave for between 90 seconds to 2 minutes, depending on how you like your banana bread consistency.

Recipe Hints and Tips:

  • Banana Bread In A Mug is not suitable for freezing.
  • You can add whipped cream on top or for a healthier version some yoghurt.
