When you just want a small piece of perfectly spongy lemon cake, this is the dessert for you! Lemon Mug Cake is a quick and easy cake. Each bite is filled with a sweet and lemon flavour and it’s ready in only 5 minutes.
If you love lemon, this is seriously the dessert for you. With a double dose of lemon flavour, this cake is truly lemon-licious.
There’s something about lemon desserts that is always so refreshing. Now that spring is finally here (Hooray!), I am so ready for a little dose of oh-so-delicious lemony flavour.
There’s something so special about certain dishes. The smell, the taste or even the site of a dish can bring back a flood of memories. Lemon Mug Cake makes me think of my late grandfather. He loved anything lemon. Whether it was a dessert or main course, if you wanted to make this humble man happy, lemon flavoured food was the way to his heart. Lemon Mug Cake makes me think of him. He’d love the light and fluffy cake batter with a perfectly sweet dose of lemon.
The double dose of lemon flavour comes from lemon juice and lemon zest. If you haven’t cooked with lemon zest before, it’s a great way to add a dose of flavour. Simply scrape some of the lemon’s yellow skin with a Microplane. The finely grated zest will melt into the mug cake creating a wonderfully lemony tasting dessert.
On its own, this sweet and lightly tart cake is truly comfort food. When you add a slice of strawberry, it adds another dimension of flavour. With a pop of sweet strawberry, Lemon Mug Cake becomes even sweeter. Whichever way you serve it, this is one tasty dessert.
When you want a small, single-size dessert, there is nothing like a mug cake. It takes like it’s freshly baked in the oven. Then it cools into a tasty and sweet treat. It’s the perfect size to share or enjoy all by yourself. Go for it – indulge in a lemon treat.Print
