    Ingredients
    Serves: 1 

    • 3 tablespoons self-raising flour
    • 1 tablespoon caster sugar
    • 2 tablespoons brown sugar
    • 1 teaspoon vanilla sugar (optional)

    Prep:3min  ›  Cook:3min  ›  Ready in:6min 

    1. 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.
    2. Cook in microwave for 2 1/2 to 3 minutes on HIGH, or until cake has risen and is cooked through.
    3. Allow to cool slightly before eating straight from the mug.

    Tip:

    If you cannot find vanilla sugar, add one or two drops of vanilla extract instead.

    Serving:

    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.
