Paleo Microwave Cake in a Mug = Nom, Nom, Nom!

Today we had a little friend of my daughters around for a visit and I realised the cupboard was pretty bare. However, I did have the few ingredients on hand to whip up a very quick and really yummy paleo mug cake. This is a very easy treat to make with the kids as it involves mashing a banana, mixing in an egg and a tiny amount of almond flour, adding in a few flavourings and nuking it for a few secs. That’s it!


. 1/2 – 1 banana (I used half an extremely large banana this time)
. 1 organic egg
. 1 tblspn almond meal
. dash of cinnamon
. 1/4 tspn vanilla
. 1/2 tbspn sultanas, optional
. 1/2 tbspn dark chocolate chips, optional


1. Mash the banana really well in a larger bowl with a fork until it is very runny and smooth
2. Crack in the egg and beat well
3. Add almond meal, cinnamon, vanilla, sultanas and chocolate chips (if using) and combine well
4. Pour into a mug and microwave on High for 90 secs – 2 mins. When the batter is pulling away from the sides it will be done
5. Either enjoy straight from the mug or turn out and serve
6. My daughter and friend enjoyed a quarter of the cake each cut up into small pieces. I had my half with a hot mug of green tea and I must say it was very good 🙂
