Easy Banana Mug Cake

When you have kids you can predict the next thing they would ask for, one of my kids was craving for cake and I was busy and can’t make a cake at the time of her request. All I could think of was to make a small mug cake for her. Banana Mug Cake small

Others tasted it and they asked for more, so I had to whip up another batch. The banana cake is delicious and simple to make so I decided to make a post for it. It is so simple and if you have a microwave you can make it within 10 minutes.
