Ingredients:

  •  2 tbsp (0.5oz/16g)  almond flour
  •  2 tbsp (0.5oz/16g)  coconut flour
  •  2 tbsp (1oz/28g) granulated erythritol
  •  1 egg
  •  1 tbsp (15ml) unsweetened almond milk
  •  1 tbsp (15ml) melted butter or coconut oil
  •  1 tbsp (15ml) lemon juice
  •  1 drop lemon flavoring (optional)
  •  ½ tsp (gluten-free) baking powder
  • Optional: Lemon Icing
  •  2 tbsp (0.3oz/12g) powdered erythritol
  •  1 tbsp (15ml) heavy cream
  •  1 tsp (5ml) lemon juice

Instructions:

1 Add all of the ingredients except for the ingredients for the optional lemon icing into a middle-sized bowl.Whisk until you get a smooth and chunk-free dough.

2 Grease your microwave-safe mug or ramekin with cooking oil that doesn’t have a strong taste (I like to use coconut oil, butter or avocado oil).

3 Add your cake batter into your mug or ramekin (the mug should be at least double the size of the mixed ingredients).

Instructions: Microwave

4 Microwave for about 1-3 minutes.

(The cooking time in your microwave may vary heavily depending on what microwave and what settings you’re using.)

A broad rule of thumb: Approx. 1 Minute at 1200 Watt and more like 2-3 minutes at <600 Watt.

If you don’t know the Wattage power of your microwave I’d recommend baking your mug cake for a shorter time period (60 seconds) first and continue baking for a few more seconds if needed.
This will avoid that the mug cake dries out.
You can test if your mug cake is completely cooked by pricking the center with a toothpick – if it comes out “clean” it’s ready!

Instructions: Oven

5 Preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit (180°C).

Follow the same steps as above.
Bake your mug cake for about 10-15 minutes.
You can test if your mug cake is completely cooked by pricking the center with a toothpick – if it comes out “clean” it’s ready!

(Optional) Prepare the Lemon Icing:

6 Mix the powdered erythritol, lemon juice, and heavy cream and pour it over the finished keto lemon mug cake. 

7 Enjoy warm or cold, both options taste great!

8 Cover with plastic wrap and store for up to 2 days in your fridge.
