Microwave Lemon Pound Mug Cake


For Mug Cake

  • 1 T almond flour
  • 1 1/2 T coconut flour, sifted
  • 1/2-1 tsp lemon zest (can use a citrus zest)
  • 1 T coconut palm sugar*
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 large egg or egg white (sub for 1 flax egg to keep it vegan)
  • 3 T + dairy free milk of choice**
  • Drop lemon extract

For The Icing

  • 1 T coconut butter, melted
  • 1 T granulated sweetener of choice
  • Milk to thin out
  • Drop of lemon extract (optional)

For A High Protein Icing

  • 3 T vanilla protein powder
  • Milk to thin out
  • Drop of lemon extract

Instructions (make in your MogoBox 15 oz. Classic White Mug or Glass Mug):

  1. In a small bowl, combine the dry ingredients and mix well.
  2. In a separate small bowl, combine the dairy free milk with the egg (or flax egg) and whisk with the lemon extract. Add the mixture to the dry mixture and mix until just combined.
  3. Grease a large mug or deep bowl such as a cereal bowl generously and pour the batter in it and microwave for at least 50 seconds, depending on the microwave.
  4. While it’s cooling, make the icing by mixing all ingredients to a desired consistency then top the lemon cake.


  • * Adjust to desired sweetness- I prefer my glaze to be sweeter than the cake.
  • ** Depending on the coconut flour you use, you may need less/more. Adjust accordingly.
  • This recipe calls for almond and coconut flour, but if you aren’t gluten-free, feel free to use regular flour.
