This recipe is an amalgamation of two already on the site: my Hot Chocolate Mug Cake and the Lemon Muffins. It combines the zesty brightness of the muffins with the convenience of a mug cake! It’s really filling, too!
In a medium sized cup or mug, whisk the following together with a fork: almond flour, flaxseed meal, an egg, sugar free sweetening syrup (I like the Da Vinci brand as it is zero carb!), coconut oil, baking powder, zest of one lemon, lemon juice, and lemon extract. The extract is optional, but definitely adds a little lemony punch to the cake!
Microwave the cake batter for 1 – 1½ minutes in the mug, or until the center is cooked. And that’s it! SO easy! You could also serve it with a swirl of whipped cream and a slice of lemon as shown here – but the cake is so soft, warm, and delicious, it doesn’t really need it!
