1 small banana

1 tbsp vegetable oil

1 tbsp milk

1 egg

2 tbsp coconut

4 tbsp self-raising flour

4 tbsp sugar (white or brown)

¼ tsp cinnamon

Pinch of salt


400 g icing sugar

130 g butter or wooden spoon

2 tbsp milk

1 tsp vanilla essence

Sliced banana (small piece)

Mix 250 ml cake flour & 1 ¼ tsp baking powder to make self-raising flour

Method for banana bread in a mug


Cut a quarter of the banana off, put to one side for decoration for later. Mash the bigger part with a fork and put in a biggish coffee mug. Whisk the egg in a small bowl until frothy. Add to the banana in the mug. Add the milk and the oil, mix with a fork. Add the dry ingredients, mix with a fork again until smooth. 

Microwave on high for approximately 3 minutes. I used a 700 Watt Microwave oven. Test this according to your own microwave, a little less or longer as needed. Put to one side to cool down.


Mix this together until smooth in a handheld or larger mixer. Put the icing sugar in a piping bag fitted with a star or flower tip and pipe a little bit on top of your cooled banana bread. Decorate with the left-over banana slices and some colourful sprinkles.
