Mix flour, caster sugar, brown sugar and vanilla sugar together in a large microwave safe mug. Add egg and mix well. Stir in oil, milk, mashed banana and crushed pecans; mix well to incorporate all the flour.
Cook in microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on HIGH, or until cake has risen and is cooked through.
Allow to cool slightly before eating straight from the mug.
If you cannot find vanilla sugar, add one or two drops of vanilla extract instead.
If you prefer not to eat out of the mug, run a knife around the sides of the mug, and tip the still warm cake onto a saucer.
