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

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.
