Chocolate Chip Banana Bread Mug Cake for One

Chocolate Chip Banana Loaf Mug CakeThis mini cake baked in the microwave takes nearly no time at all and very few ingredients. I’ve made it with less sugar and oil than most yet it’s still moist and sweet. It’s only a slightly sinful treat for yourself or a loved one.

1/4 cup White Flour
1/8 tsp. Baking Powder
1 tsp. Brown Sugar
1/2 tsp. Cinnamon
1 egg
1 tsp. Olive Oil
1/2 of a Small Mashed Banana
1 Tbsp. Dark Chocolate Chips

In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients with a fork.   In a second small bowl, whisk egg, oil, and mashed banana together.  Pour wet into dry and stir until blended.  Fold in chocolate chips.   Pour into a microwave-proof large coffee mug.  (I used a round 2 cup casserole dish.)

Microwave on high setting for 40 seconds, and check, then another 10to15 seconds and check again.  At this point, my darling little cake was done.  Old microwaves will take longer.

Top with a dollop of whipped cream or ice cream. Enjoy!
