Make no mistake, whether you just eat clean or clean and low carb, this is a treat. Not a regular part of your eating plan. But the truth is, sometimes you need a treat. A delicious treat. And this blueberry lemon mug cake is just the thing to soothe a raging sweet tooth.

While some would consider this a bit high in carbs (it has approximately 12 carbs or 8 net carbs), I’m convinced that if I’m going to stick with this low carb lifestyle, I have to be able to enjoy myself from time to time.

I love that I can make a single serving of cake and avoid having a dish of leftovers laying around. There is nothing worse than taking that last bite of cake and realizing you’d like to have a few more bites. Because when there are actually a lot of bites still in the kitchen, it’s oh-so-easy to indulge, “one more bite” at a time.

So single servings are something I’ll be doing more of in the future. Especially where desserts are concerned. I hope you enjoy this!

Recipe Note: If you’d rather use a sweetener other than stevia, try 1-2 tbsp. of sucanat or coconut sugar. Even honey should work in the same amount.

Equipment

  • Microwave
  • Mug

Ingredients

  • 1 large egg
  • 1 tbsp. light coconut milk
  • 1 tbsp. coconut oil (in liquid state)
  • 1 tsp. pure vanilla extract
  • ½ tsp. pure liquid stevia
  • ¼ tsp. lemon extract
  • ½ tsp. tightly packed lemon zest
  • 4 tbsp. almond meal
  • ¼ tsp. baking powder
  • ¼ tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 15 blueberries (fresh, not frozen)

Instructions

  • In a medium to large mug, crack your egg and whisk with a fork.
  • Whisk in the coconut milk and oil. The oil should blend in smoothly.
  • Add the vanilla, lemon zest and stevia and whisk thoroughly.
  • Now add the almond meal, baking powder and cinnamon and once again, whisk thoroughly.
  • When the batter is nice a smooth, simply drop the blueberries onto the top of the batter. It will sink on its own. Do not mix them in.
  • Microwave for 1 minute to 2 minutes. Start with one minute and if there is still uncooked batter at the bottom (push the cake to the side with a spoon to see the bottom), microwave for another minutes.
  • Allow this to cool. The berries hang onto the heat for a long time, so don't burn yourself!
  • Serve with a few extra fresh berries for garnish.

  1. Yum! I’m going to be making this mug cake soon!

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Dori – I hope you enjoy it!

  2. When do you add the lemon zest?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Lori – Ooops! My apologies! I just added it to the recipe. I hope you enjoy it!

  3. I love lemon and blueberry together! All I have right now are the NuNaturals stevia packets. Could I substitute that for the liquid?

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Stacey – Sure! Although I have never purchased the packets before and have no idea what the wet to dry substitution is. However, the company should have that information on their website. I hope you enjoy it!

  4. This is sooooo yummy i made one for myself and then had to make one for my sister to take to work with her! We both thoroughly enjoyed it and it filled us up too 🙂
    Wanting to make a family sized version probably quadruple the quantity, does that mean I should quadruple the cooking time too? Thanks 🙂

    1. The Gracious Pantry says:

      Ayla – No, you’ll have to play around with that a bit. Start out by doubling it, and then do a little at a time after that.
