This recipe is so fast and easy and addictive you will make it over and over (and over) again.  I think I made it for breakfast for an entire week.  I got a bunch of organic bananas from Costco for about $2!

Frugalness is fun  ;)

    Yum yum yum. I made your pumpkin buckwheat mug cake throughout the autumn and lately I’ve been making the chocolate pb and chocolate versions. I’ve had to avoid bananas for several months but I’m back on them now so this is perfect timing!

    Any plans for not using a microwave? I don’t have one or want to use one for making nutritious food.

    Thanks!

    You can try setting your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit and baking the cake for 20-40 minutes. I’m not sure of the exact time, but when the cake forms a “dome” and springs back when tapped, it should be ready! Hope you like the cake :)

    I think it should work in oven as well, or no?
    But maybe the baking time would be 10-15 minutes?
    I don not want to use microwave.
    THis cake looks sooo nice :)

    Baking in the oven will take a longer time, anywhere from 20-40 minutes. I’m not sure of the exact time, but when the cake forms a “dome” and springs back when tapped, it should be ready!! Hope you like the recipe :)
