An new day. The last recipe was about the amazing Dutch cuisine: Dutch Hutspot. The taste of the dish was amazing. I just want to eat it today, but we have a different recipe. Not a main dish, but a dessert! An dessert that is quick and easy with the taste of lemon: Lemon Mug Cake. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at how to make Lemon Mug Cake.

What is the definition of Lemon Mug Cake

The meaning of lemon mug cake is:

”It’s a small lemon cake. You don’t use a cake mold but a mug. You only need a couple of ingredients, a mug and a microwave”.

Lemon Mug Cake

Do you remember the first time you had a lemon? I think you were a small child. If you have children and you give them their first lemon, the reaction is priceless. The taste of a lemon is strong. Especially when you are younger. I like the taste of lemon, especially in desserts. This can be ice cream, mug cakes or other desserts.

Not everyone can be a fan of the lemon flavor. But this recipe will help you to cross that line. This recipe taste as lemon with extra lemon zest on top as a topping. But it is really delicious.

You can make this recipe within 4 minutes. 3 minutes is for the preparation and 1 minute is for the microwave. This 1 minute lemon mug cake is amazing! After 1 minute in the microwave feel and look at the top. If the substance sticks at your finger and feels a little bit wet, put it for a couple of seconds in the microwave. For this recipe I use an egg, but you can also omit it to really make a vegan Lemon Mug Cake.

Lemon Mug Cake Recipe

An lemon mug cake recipe is very easy to make. You need a couple of ingredients: all purpose flour, granulated sugar, baking powder, salt, melted butter, vanilla extract, lemon juice and an egg. For the topping i use lemon zest.

The first thing you need to do is grab a large mug. If you only have small mugs, it’s not a problem but you need watch close that the that the cake does not go over the edge. When you have a good mug you can start with collecting the ingredients which you need. The measurement system I use is grams. Why? It’s easier to do with a digital scale and a lot of countries use this system. If you using cups, tbsp or tsp just use a calculation. It’s really easy. The first ingredients you want to add in the mug are the dry ingredients: flour, baking powder, salt and lemon zest. Mix the ingredients together. The next thing is to add the wet ingredients. The lemon juice, vanilla extract, melted butter and the lemon zest. Use the lemon zest of half a lemon. Mix everything together.

Put the mug in the microwave for 1 minute on 1000 watt. After the minute feel the top of the mug. If that’s still a little bit wet, add another 10-15 seconds. After the 10-15 seconds you can add some lemon zest on top and your dessert is done! Enjoy your mug dessert!
