Lemon blueberry mugcake.

lemon blueberry microwave mugcake

There are days when the crazy craving takes over. The crazy cake craving!! It is certain that a whole cake baked is not going to be finished. It is this absolutely silly craving that creeps up in your dreams and then lingers on till you have a few bites.
The best answer for those is mug cakes. Certainly, it is a few bites, out of that basic pantry supplies. Talk about instant gratification!! It is for these times that I consider the microwave convenient for these times.

Going eggless

The regular cake recipes call for one or two eggs. So I hardly find it logical to dump an egg into the mug, that too eggy. Neither can you cut the fresh egg in half!! So go eggless.
Eggless recipes (Christmas cake)  are not new to baking. They are as much love as the regular ones. So try some especially this moist lemon blueberry mug cake.

What makes lemons and Blueberries click together?

Lemons scream freshness any time of the year. Start with the simple lemonade, the tart juice with the sweetness in any form has always tugged our hearts. The Blueberries join the combination as they bring in the visual brightness of contrasting colour. Don’t stop there, the sweet pop of the Blueberries is one of the best mouths feels. The lemon when paired with the Blueberries always enhances the berries. Once you taste them together, you will go back to the combo any day for it just means sunshine in the mug.

I like the fact that this is an eggless recipe. I try to bake vegan where possible. The ingredients look pretty healthy compared to regular cakes too. And the lemon and blueberry combo are a winner for me too!
