So today I accidentally created the most DELICIOUS mug cake recipe ever - I was aiming for an easy and quick to make one serving size desert that wasn’t going to hurt my diet too much - and gosh darn did I succeed. The best part is you can make is as healthy or as unhealthy as you like - and you can adapt it to whatever you have in your pantry!
This recipe is great if you are tired and sore and hungry or you feel like a snack but you don’t have the energy to cook anything complicated. Without further ado, here’s the recipe!
Microwave Mug Cake (Serves 1)
¼ flour (any kind of flour is fine, my favourite is almond flour!)
1 mashed banana (if you don’t have bananas, 1/3 cup of applesauce if you’re in North America or 1 mashed boiled apple if you’re anywhere else in the world are good too!)
1 tablespoon of sweetener (honey, maple syrup, brown sugar, white sugar, agave, stevia - anything is good!)
1 tablespoon of any type of milk
1 tablespoon of any butter, margarine or oil (my favourite is coconut oil or olive oil because they are better for you!)
½ teaspoon cinnamon
½ teaspoon baking soda or baking powder (skip this if you are using flour with added raising agents)
Pinch of salt
½ teaspoon vanilla (optional)
Just mix all the ingredients together in a mug then pop it in the microwave for 2 minutes and 30 seconds.
Enjoy your delicious fluffy cinnamony mug cake!
