While banana bread, or cake for that matter, is also outstandingly delicious, it takes 50 minutes to bake… on a good day.

It’s a long title, I know. But this mug cake deserves it.

To make 1 mug cake, I mix the ingredients in the mug itself. If I’m making more than one, I double or triple the recipe and mix it in a separate bowl before pouring into the mugs.

Melt the butter in the mug before adding the ingredients. Sprinkle with chocolate chips and microwave for 90 seconds to 2 minutes. The top will be moist and you will need to let it cool about 3 to 4 minutes before eating. It’s really hot when it comes out of the microwave.

Anything you like on chocolate chip banana bread works great here too. Whipped cream, dusted with ground cinnamon is delicious. Or sliced bananas, a drizzle of chocolate… melty ice cream?

I’m getting hungry!

So grab the remote and cue up the movie. It’s time for a treat!

    We tried the 2 minute chocolate chip banana mug cake tonight. It was so easy, quick and delicious. Thank you for a wonderful desert recipe and treat for a Sunday night.

    1. So glad you liked it! We loved it too!

    can you replace milk with water?

    1. That is a great question. I’ve not tested it with water. Milk adds a creamy flavor to the cake – but water should work. I will try to test it this evening!

      1. Jana — I made 4 mugs cakes last night with water — and there is very little difference. Enjoy!!

    I don’t have much time to eat anything because of online school, but this is so quick and delicious! Personally, I think three tablespoons of sugar is too sweet, so I reduced it to 1 1/2 tablespoons. Thank you for this recipe!!!

    1. Thank you for your comment on the sugar. I also like a reduced amount but the guys in our house love it sweeter. I’m SO glad you liked it and that it works for a super busy schedule!
