Steps to make Banana Mug Cake


Combine dry ingredients


In a bowl or mug itself, mix together 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour, 3 tablespoons brown sugar, ½ teaspoon baking powder, and a dash of salt.


Add wet ingredients


Stir in 1 tablespoon melted butter, 1 tablespoon milk, 1 mashed banana, 1 beaten egg, and ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract until just combined.




Place the mug in the microwave and cook on high for about 3 minutes, checking halfway through. Remove and let sit to cool.


Prepare glaze


In a small microwave-safe bowl, combine ¼ cup brown sugar, 1 ½ tablespoon butter, ¼ teaspoon vanilla extract, and a small splash of milk and microwave for 30 seconds to 1 minute until bubbly. You may need to stop a few times as the mixture will bubble up very quickly. Stir to combine completely.
