The sugar-free lemon icing is optional, but I do recommend adding it as the flavors enhance each other perfectly.

You’ll also Need:

Mug or Ramekin: Make sure to use a microwave-safe ramekin or mug for this cake. If sharing, you might choose to cook in a ramekin because it is easier to remove the cake and serve it on a plate. If enjoying alone, a mug works great!

Cook Time: 1 minute 30 seconds
Total Time: 3 minutes 30 seconds

When you’re craving something sweet, it doesn’t get any easier than this 90-second Keto Lemon Mug Cake! Ready in minutes using only a microwave!

Instructions

    Mug Cake

  1. Use melted butter to coat mug cups or ramekins.
  2. In a small bowl, mix all ingredients well.
  3. Add to mug cup(s) or ramekins.
  4. Make sure it doesn't fill much more than 1/2 the cup because it will rise.
  5. Microwave for 90 seconds.
  6. Remove from microwave and let cool for 2-3 minutes.
  7. Flip upside down onto a plate.

Topping

  1. Mix topping ingredients in a small bowl and combine well.
  2. The topping should be thick but pourable.
  3. Drizzle just a small amount on the mug cake(s). You may have extra.
  4. Top with almonds (optional)

Notes

Drizzle the glaze after 2 minutes 

Don’t drizzle the lemon mug cake with the vanilla glaze as soon as the mug cake is fresh from the microwave. Allow it to sit for 2-3 minutes, then drizzle
over the top.

Check the mug cake in30-second intervals

Pause your microwave at the 1-minute mark, and insert a skewer in the center. If it comes out clean, the mug cake is done. If some batter remains on it, continue microwaving it in 30-second spurts until it is done. No microwave is created equal, and the power it provides varies.
