Banana Nutella Mug Cake

Banana Nutella Mug Cake


Picture this: your Christmas guests are coming and you notice within minutes of them showing up that you have a bunch of beautifully ripe bananas. The only problem is, they are only beautiful if you are a baker. Seeing browning bananas on the clean counter is hardly a coveted table decoration.

There is no time to make a banana bread, but you want to impress them with your baking prowess. What do you do?

If it were up to me, this mug cake would be my go-to save for this situation.

Alternatively, this (along with my favorite microwave oatmeal recipe) is my go-to recipe when I only have one ripe banana in my house. I mean, you don't want to eat this browning banana, but then again, you can't really make a banana bread with it unless you want to buy another bunch of bananas and wait until they go brown too. *Sigh* Foodie troubles.

So whatever your situation is, if you have one, two... ten ripe bananas, you should seriously consider this mug cake. You won't regret it.

What you'll need:
  • 4 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
  • 2 tablespoons unsweetened cocoa powder
  • 2 tablespoons powdered sugar
  • a pinch of salt
  • 2 tablespoons Nutella
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 4 tablespoons milk
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1/4 cup mashed ripe banana (around 3/4 a banana)

Directions:
  1. In a small bowl, mix together the flour, baking powder, cocoa, powdered sugar and salt.
  2. Make a well in the middle of the mixture and add the wet ingredients. Mix together the ingredients until fully combined.
  3. Pour the mixture into a microwave safe mug. Place in the microwave and cook on high for 1 1/2 minutes and see if it's done. If it's not done, microwave for 30 more seconds. Let stand for one minute until eating.

  15. I've only made mug cake once and it was somewhat of a failure. After looking at this gooey chocolatey banana-y cake, I'm am more than willing to give it another shot. Thanks!
