Tips And Ideas
Use More Or Less Banana Extract
You can change the amount of banana extract you use in this recipe to taste. If you want a more pronounced banana flavor, use a full teaspoon. If you want it to be more subtle, use less.
It’s important to not overdo it with the extract, because it can make the keto banana mug cake taste artificial. Remember that extracts are concentrated, so a little goes a long way.
Top It With A Scoop Of Ice Cream
Top your keto banana mug cake with a scoop of your favorite low carb ice cream.
A few days ago I posted the sugar free chocolate ice cream recipe. This combination is heavenly. Try it and let me know how you liked it.
Can You Freeze This Cake?
I don’t recommend freezing this cake as it can become quite dry. It only takes a few minutes to make so I suggest making a fresh batch when you’re ready to eat it.
Can You Use Other Fruit Extracts?
You can replace the banana extract in this recipe with an equal amount of another fruit extract, such as strawberry or blueberry. The results will be delicious!
There are so many keto friendly fruit extracts out there, so feel free to experiment and see which one you like the best.
