Stumbled across this on Pinterest, have already experimented with it, too.
Sugarless, Flourless, Three-ingredient Mug Cake
- 1 ripe banana
- 1 egg
- 3 tablespoons of cocoa (NOT drink mix, just plain cocoa)
Instructions: Puree/blend/mix ingredients together in microwave-proof container, until it forms a thick batter. Scrape down the sides and even out the top of the batter. Microwave on high for 1 minute.
What you get is a moist chocolate pudding, really, rather than a cake. But yummy. Very nice with ice-cream, too (if one wishes to indulge).
The taste may vary a bit, depending on the ripeness and size of the banana.
Variant #1: as well as the cocoa, add a tablespoon of cinnamon. Also yummy.
I also want to try one using solely "Christmas spices" - cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, cloves. But I haven't figured out the amounts yet.
