<Miwa’s tips>

1. It's delicious to add chocolate chips and cocoa powder as a replacement of matcha to the mug cake.

2. The cooking time may vary depending on the wattage of your microwave. I use a 600W microwave, but if you have a 1000W microwave, for example, check the cake after about 1 minute and adjust the cooking time accordingly.

<Storage time>

Store it in an airtight container in the fridge for 2 days.

I… dislike bananas, can I use other fruits? Like berries?

Besides I love how easy it is!

Banana is what keeps the cake moist. Perhaps try it with your preferred choice of yogurt?😋 I haven't tested this yet though.,.. sorry!!
