Servings: 2

total Time: 5 min


- Egg - Hot chocolate mix - Banana (be sure to use a ripe banana - the more ripe the sweeter it will be!)

First, mash up the banana in a medium-sized bowl. I use the back of a fork to press the banana against the bowl to mash it up.

Step 1

Next, add the hot chocolate powder and egg into the bowl with the banana. Mix this all together to form your cake batter.

Step 2

Pour the cake batter into your favorite microwave-safe mug or ramekin. This makes two small cakes or one medium cake.

Step 3

Microwave on high for 75 seconds. Let cool for 2-3 minutes after cooking, as it will be hot! Then, enjoy this chocolate dessert!
