Cocoa Banana Mug Cake

I am sure overripe bananas are an issue of national concern. I mean, if I was still in India I would have blamed Modi for it and returned the picture book I received in kindergarten for best handwriting. 

But thankfully the situation is not as bad. There are mug cakes to the rescue. If I can use up the bananas in a minute, why should I spend all the time in creaming the butter and sugar for my banana bread?

I found this simple and easy recipe and thanked the Oven Gods!  
So here goes –


2 overripe bananas

4 tbsp peanut butter 

1 egg

1 tbsp granulated sugar

3 tbsp unsweetened cocoa powder

Add-ins of your choice, including chocolate chips butterscotch chips, nuts, or dried fruit


  • Mash the banana in a bowl.
  • Add the peanut butter and egg and mix thoroughly. 
  • Stir in the sugar and cocoa and beat until smooth. 
  • Fold in the add-ins. 
  • Divide the batter between two 8 oz mugs. 
  • Microwave separately for 2 to 2 1/2 minutes each until risen and firm.
