Chocolate mug cake with banana ice cream

mug cake

Chocolate cake, cooked in a coffee mug in the microwave? yes. Banana ice cream made from bananas. Nothing else. Topped with some chocolate chips and a raspberry. Why would you not want to eat this right now?

Here’s what you need for the ice cream:

3 bananas
a blender

Slice the bananas about 1/4-1/2 inch thick and put them in the freezer until they are frozen. Usually about 2-4 hours. Put them in a blender and blend away. Start with the blender on low, blend for a few seconds, smash down with a wooden spoon, repeat. You will want to add liquid, don’t. Just keep blending and smashing and in about 10 minutes it will start to move around more and get a little creamy. Start blending on medium and smash a few more times , soon you will have beautiful, creamy, banana ice cream.
