Is This Lemon Mug Cake Keto?

A cup of this cake contains about 5.5g of net carbs. So, if you eat this sugar free lemon mug cake once in a while, it is perfectly fine on a keto diet.

On this diet, meat should be the main focus of your meals, with low-carb vegetables as the side dish. Eating keto desserts here and there is fine- but don’t go overboard.

Tips And Tricks

How To Avoid A Dry Cake

In order to absorb all the lemon juice, we are using coconut flour in this low carb lemon mug cake recipe.

But, if you use too much of it- it can make the cake way too dry. So, follow the recipe and only use 1/4 teaspoon of coconut flour!

Try Adding Other Fruit Extracts

To make this gluten free lemon mug cake we are adding a bit of vanilla. But, you can also add other fruit extracts to your liking.

Of course not all of them are going to blend well with lemon, so you need to be careful in your choice.

But, some good options are orange, grapefruit, raspberry, and strawberry.

Add Cream Cheese On Top

You can add full fat cream cheese on top of your mug cake and make it super duper delicious. I tried it and I must say, it really takes the cake to a whole new level.

Just make sure to buy and use highquality cream cheese, because it really makes a difference in the taste.

Can You Freeze It?

I don’t recommend freezing this keto lemon mug cake. It’s light and fluffy and I think the texture would be altered if frozen.
