This Lemon Mug Cake could not get any easier to make. Simply combine all of the ingredients in a mug, stir until well mixed and then microwave for 90 seconds to 2 minutes and voila, you have a moist cake in a mug.

There is lots of zesty lemon flavour that keeps this dessert light and refreshing. I love eating it on its own, but if you want a bit more decadence then top each cake with a spoonful of coconut cream and drizzle of honey.

This is a quick and delicious cake to enjoy with an afternoon cup of tea, or a light treat to enjoy for dessert after a heavy meal. It’s so easy and so good!
