Luscious Double Lemon Cake

I am not a fan of real difficult recipes, although I have been known to use them, but a Mug Cake?? How awesome are these? Made in the microwave too!. You can have your cake and eat it too. Individual servings are perfect for a quick snack when time is limited. Definitely a keeper recipe.


3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
1⁄4 teaspoon baking powder
1⁄8 teaspoon salt
1 large egg
3 tablespoons granulated sugar
2 tablespoons vegetable oil
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest
11⁄2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


1⁄3 cup  confectioners' (icing) sugar
11⁄2 teaspoon freshly squeezed lemon juice


In the mug, combine flour, baking powder and salt. Using a fork, beat in egg, sugar, oil, lemon zest and lemon juice until very well blended.

Microwave on High for 11⁄2 to 2 minutes (checking at 11⁄2) or until risen and center is just set. Let cool slightly or entirely in mug. Eat directly from mug or gently remove to a small plate.

Icing: In a small bowl or cup, use a fork to stir confectioners' sugar and lemon juice until smooth. Drizzle over cake.

Prep Ahead Option

Combine the flour, baking powder and salt in the mug; cover and store at room temperature. Whisk the egg in a small airtight container, then add sugar, oil, lemon zest and lemon juice; cover and refrigerate. Prepare the icing in a small airtight container; cover and refrigerate until ready to use.
