This is a breakfast or snack recipe that is great for when you are in a big hurry and don’t have a lot of time to cook.  It only takes 2-3 minutes in the microwave to cook this treat, and just a few minutes to mix the ingredients together.  It is also nice and sweet since a ripe banana is mushed into the ingredients.  Just Egg is used as the binder for this pancake in a mug.  I am telling you this recipe couldn’t be any easier so give it a try!  It’s a fluffy and scrumptious dish!  Who wouldn’t want to eat a pancake out of a mug?
