Bananas, whether mashed or otherwise, help lower the level of stress as they are rich in potassium which is an essential mineral needed to regulate water balance, acidity level and blood pressure.
No food lifts up our mood in a jiffy like desserts do and microwave mug cakes have now become food enthusiasts’ go-to treats even if they are not as good as real cakes. The reason being, they are awesomely fast enough to satisfy an emergency homemade treat craving without an oven.
Since they fall in the category of 'want cake, need cake now' cravings, they are not designed to be made in advance hence, should be consumed soon after they are baked in the microwave.
