What could I do with an over-ripe banana? Obviously, banana bread comes to mind, but could I find a mug recipe?
There were banana cake, mug or regular size, recipes.
There were banana bread recipes and banana bread pudding recipes in various sizes.
Plus, I found a Mug recipe for Eggless Banana Cake.
I got confused. Did the recipe call for a banana or a ripe banana or an over-ripe banana? Was the recipe a full-sized recipe or a mug recipe? Did the recipe call for ingredients I did not have or did not use?
There are days when I can’t keep recipes straight and confuse several recipes when I begin preparations. So, it was with caution, I choose one recipe to try.
I got lucky. I choose “Banana Bread Cake in a Mug.” Of course, I made modifications.
