Chef's Notes

Sprinkle mug cake with a mixture of lemon zest and powdered sugar for extra flavor.


  2. Easy too make and tastes good.
  3. Add more lemon
  4. I couldn't taste the lemon flavor. I also microwaved it in 2 shallow bowls instead of a mug with no overflow.
  5. my daughter made this and loved it
  6. Quick and tasty. Use a few drops lemon extract if you want a stronger lemon taste. Use a giant mug or two medium ones. Use only half a large beaten egg if large is all you have on hand.
  7. I have 5 dozen large eggs. No small
  8. I wish it had more lemon flavor. I had everything on hand which is a plus. Warning! I used the biggest mug I had and it overflowed. Use 2 mugs for this recipe.
