Lemon is just the perfect summer flavor, isn’t it? We are blessed to have a lemon tree in our back yard, so this time of year, we are literally overflowing with gorgeous, tangy-sweet lemons. So, why not make a Keto Lemon Mug Cake? Read on for the recipe.

I use the lemons in everything from fish dishes or as a light dressing for my salads, however this is one of the more decadent – though very light! – lemon recipes that I love to make to perfectly cap off a summer barbeque or casual outdoor dinner. For most of my keto baking, I use Swevre sweetener because it bakes really well, is a nearly perfect dupe for real sugar and is a 1:1 swap so it’s easy to keto-fy any recipe.

I like to top this Keto Lemon Mug Cake with fresh whipped cream and a hit of lemon zest, but honestly it’s delicious with the tangy icing! If you want to make it extra lemony, you can add some of the lemon extract to whipped cream or make a simple keto, lemon icing by stirring up some heavy cream with lemon extract and a touch of sweetener. My kids even love this!
