I absolutely love anything baked that is made with lemons. And I really do mean love. Lemon meringue pies, lemon muffins, lemon poppy bread, and lately, lemon mug cakes. A handful of ingredients and a few minutes of your time are all it takes to make a lemon-based dessert. And best of all? It’s made entirely from scratch with mostly whole food ingredients that all work in tandem to make a truly great lemon cake indeed. When you try this one out, be sure to add some whipped cream and lemon curd to the mug cake when you serve it. Thank me later.
