THIS IS SOOOO GOOD!
I couldn’t wait one more day to share this recipe with you.
Last Friday I had a hankerin’ for some lemon something.
I knew that Gwen had a Lemon Poppyseed MIM out there, but I didn’t have poppyseed. I also didn’t have almond flour and I really felt like coconut.
So I made this.
My family L.O.V.E.D. IT!
They haven’t been big fans of the Cake In a Mug or Muffin in a Mug recipes that I have tried with them.
BUT this! Another story…
I have to eat it in the bathroom, door locked, just so I can eat in peace! It’s like having little vultures pecking at me for a bite! lol!
It’s THAT good!
Now for the recipe…
FYI ~ This is my own unique creation… I did NOT go online to look for a recipe, nor have I seen one out there like this that I remember. Forgive me if it is similar, but from my heart, it is my own! However it was inspired by Gwen’s idea of lemon in her MIM and the original Cake-in-a-Mug from Trim Healthy Mama on page 379-381.
- 1 egg
- 1 tbs butter (dairy free, use coconut oil)
- 3 tbs unsweetened coconut flakes
- 1/2 heaping tbs coconut flour (use less for more moist cake)
- 1/2 doonk THM Brand Stevia (or 8 drops of NOW liquid stevia)
- 1/8 tsp Lemon Flavor from Frontier
- 1/8 tsp pure vanilla extract
- a small pinch of salt
- 1/8 tsp baking soda
- 1/8-1/4 tsp apple cider vinegar
- In a large mug, mix all of the ingredients very well with a fork.
- Place in the microwave for 1 1/2 minutes.
- Remove or eat in the mug. It cools best if you remove it!
For individual servings baked; bake at 350 degrees for about 10 mintues.
You can also double, quadruple, etc. for your family and bake in the oven for about 20 minutes if using a muffin pan.
My favorite brand of flavoring is the Frontier Brand Organic Lemon Flavor.
I have eaten this 3 times in 4 days. It is great by itself. Definitely kicked up a notch by adding some softened cream cheese and my Stove-top Chia Berry Preserves in the above pic.
Play with it and enjoy!
