It’s the last recipe for mug month, this is a delicious recipe for a cheesecake in a mug! This one is a banana cheesecake with a chocolate chip cookie crust!

If you have missed any of the other mug recipes in the Month, here are some links for a cooked breakfast in a mug, macaroni and cheese in a mug and a sweet and sour chicken in a mug – all mugtastic recipes!!

Remember I am using a 800 watt microwave, so you may need to adjust your times.

Start off by using a spare mug and melting your butter, about 20 seconds should do it to get it fully melted if at room temperature, tip your biscuit crumbs into the mug and stir well to thicken and merge. Tip in the chocolate chips and mix too then place into the bottom of the final mug you wish to use to serve in. Give it a blast in the microwave for 30 seconds or so to firm up the cookie base and then keep in the fridge.

In the spare mug again (give it a wash), combine all the filling ingredients together and beat well until pale. Once merged add on top of the mug near to the top and microwave for a good 2 and a half minutes to cook through, it should be firm on the top and bubbling during cooking so be careful!

Finish with grated chocolate on top and then some dollops of marshmallow fluff. You can toast the fluff using a chefs blow torch or if you want bake it, but this will need a careful look from you peering through the oven while it does so.

Hope you give this recipe a try folks, it is really, really good!
