Blueberry Lemon Mug Cake Recipe

And so the blueberry addiction continues in my house….and this recipe totally sent my low carb diet off the rails!

I let my lil missy take control of measuring and mixing all of our test versions of this recipe (and yes, that meant I had to keep stocking up on blueberries because she couldn’t stop eating them from the container!!) but I 100% participated in the taste testing.

And, of course, this Microwave Blueberry Lemon Mug Cake isn’t just a recipe to make once….

We must have made it at least 6 times and when we finally got it right, (the perfect level of moist-ness) I decided we needed to make it just one more time to get the perfect photos. (My first set of photos weren’t nearly this pretty. I had removed the cake from the mug, but mug cakes don’t look so great out of the mug, lol.)

I made the mistake of leaving the room “for a few minutes” while it cooled and when I came back 30 minutes later to do the photos, “someone” had eaten half of my mug cake!!  (so we had to make it one last time – glad I did, these photos came out amazing!)

Needless to say, this blueberry lemon mug cake is about to become a “I want dessert but don’t want to bake anything” staple.

And, let’s be real, while mug cakes are meant to be shared….there’s also NOTHING wrong with eating the entire mug yourself while bingeing on Netflix….not that I would know anything about that one. 😉

Since this is so easy, this also makes a great hands-on activity for sleepovers…I know my lil missy would LOVE to impress her friends by showing them how to make this!

Flavor-wise, I am loving the blueberry-lemon combination. It’s the perfect amount of sweet and tart. Definitely don’t skimp on the blueberry lemon icing/drizzle – It’s sooo good!
