Don't forget to try my 3 minute Carrot Cake too!

  • 1 medium banana, mashed
  • 1 large organic egg, beaten
  • 2 tablespoons Nutkao Chocolate Hazelnut Spread of Italy   or your favorite chocolate hazelnut spread or any nut butter. If you use nut butter you will need to add 2 teaspoons sweetener of choice.  
  1. In a small bowl, mash the ripe banana with a fork until smooth.  Add hazelnut spread and whisk until combined. 
  2. Add beaten egg and whisk well.
  3. Pour into a large coffee cup leaving plenty of room for expansion. 
  4. Microwave on high for apx 4 minutes depending on the power of your microwave. Cake should be dense and moist but firm. It will deflate after removing but it's enough for two.
  5. Cool  a minute or two for best texture and so you don't burn your tongue!


  1. This looks great! I am going to try it but have to figure out what I am going to substitute for the egg.

    1. Hi Meredith, you could try a chia or flax egg. Here's the standard recipe: 1 T ground chia or flax to 3 T warm water. Let sit in the fridge to gel for about 15 minutes. I hope it works and look forward to hearing your results!

  2. Oh yum!! I've never made a cake in a cup before! Fun!
