While this isn't your fastest mug recipe, it certainly is the tastiest!
With fresh lemon curd, a powdered sugar glaze and this lemon mug cake work together to create an incredible tangy dessert.
4 tbsp Flour ¼ tsp Baking Powder ⅛ tsp Salt 3 tbsp Milk 1 tbsp Coconut Oil 2 tbsp Granulated Sugar 1 tbsp Lemon Juice 1 tsp Lemon Zest
Glaze 1 tbsp Powdered Sugar ½ tsp Water
Lemon Curd 1 Egg Yolk 2 tbsp Sugar 2 tbsp Lemon Juice ⅛ tsp Salt 1 tbsp Butter, Melted
Using a microwave-safe bowl mix the ingredients for the curd until the sugars look dissolved and everything looks well combined.
Microwave for 2 ½min to 3 minutes stopping 2 or 3 times to stir. Keep a close eye at the end. If it piles up on the back end of a spoon like a little peak (think whipped cream) then you can stop cooking it as it's good.
Let the curd cool while you prep the lemon mug cake.
In a microwave-safe mug combine the dry ingredients and mix.
Add in the wet ingredients and mix until well combined and no chunks remain.
Top with a tablespoon of lemon curd and then microwave for 1 min 30 seconds to 2 minutes. My microwave takes a full 2 minutes but is a lower wattage.
While the cake is cooking, mix together your glaze in a small bowl.
Let the cake cool for a minute or two and then drizzle your icing on top.
