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  😉

  1. 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!

  2. Ahhh this looks delicious! I will make this as soon as I get back from vacation!

  3. Omg I have every ingredient EXCEPT the buckwheat and baking powder darn!!! Poor college student probs…but I definitely want to make this for breakfast soon!! Thank you for the recipe :)

      Oh, of course! I know exactly what you’re talking about, I always seem to run out of ingredients.
      Once you get the ingredients again I hope you try out the cake! And love it 😉

  4. Looks great! What a nutritious yet whole grain yet dessert!

  5. 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 :)

    • Brigitta-
      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 :)

  8. Hey Jessica,

    we’re having this cake almost every weekend for breakfast and I figured it was time I finally sent a big “thank you” your way! (In fact, I am eating it right now, topped with no-sugar-added applesauce 😀 )

  10. Not to sound silly, but what temp does the microwave have to be? mine has a bunch of settings and i’m not sure which to use.

    Thanks

    • Cristina-
      I’m not exactly sure what temperature the microwave has to be, but I believe my microwave is usually on full power. Just be sure to watch the cake as it bakes, usually you can tell when it’s undercooked and you can definitely tell when it’s burnt 😉
      The cake will be done when the surface springs back when you lightly tap the center :)
