Banana and Chocolate Chip Mug Cake

We have created a mug cake recipe to celebrate a collaboration between the Co-Op, Didsbury Arts Festival and the local Food Bank. To Celebrate Fairtrade Fortnight February 22nd – 7th  March

Mug cakes are popular because they’re easy to make and you don’t need an oven!


  • 4 tablespoons self raising
  • 4 tablespoons caster
  • 1 egg
  • 3 tablespoons banana (alternatively use milk, oil or water)
  • 2 tablespoons of chopped chocolate


  1. In a mug mix the flour and sugar, then add the egg and banana and mix to form a paste. If you don’t want to use banana you can use milk, oil or water.

  2. Stir in your chopped up chocolate.

  3. Microwave on full power for 2 mins

  4. Tip cake out and cut into slices and enjoy!
