I’ve been making these banana mug muffins all week, and Madison is obsessed and now wants them all day, every day! I even add some sprinkles on top because they make her happy, and we can all use small doses of happiness these days.

HELPFUL TIPS:

  • Make sure you use a microwave safe mug.
  • Cook times may vary with each microwave, you may need to add 30 seconds depending. Play around with it.
  • If your mug cake is not rising, make sure your baking powder is not expired.
  • I used an espresso mug which was the perfect size for a half banana. A ramekin would also work.
  • To use a whole banana double the recipe and use a larger coffee mug.
  • For an espresso-size mug this took 90 seconds in my microwave. If you make double, increase the time to about 2 minutes.
  • You will know when it’s done when the center is no longer wet.
  • Oven Directions: If you don’t have a microwave, you can bake this in a preheated oven in a ramekin of cupcake liner. Bake until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, 325F for 25 to 30 minutes.
  • Air Fryer Directions: If you want to bake this in the air fryer, preheat the air fryer to 300°F. Bake until the tops are golden and a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean, about 15 minutes. Let cool before eating.
