Keto Lemony Ricotta Mug Cake

The one thing I absolutely miss when grabbing a keto friendly Starbucks drink, is hands down their soft delicious lemon loaf! I know I can't be the only one. So that's how this recipes came about. I LOVE lemon desserts & treats. I knew I needed to come up with a recipes that was equally delicious. Let me tell you! This did NOT disappoint! Even my husband was impressed so much that he told me to hold on to this recipe for a bit. But he should know me by now, when I am excited over recipes I HAVE to share it! This can easily be for one person or if you're feeling nice you can share half. Sharing is caring after all. Well, here it is. The best lemon ricotta mug cake EVER!

🍋 Lemon Ricotta Mug Cake 🍋

2T coconut flour
2.5T granulated sweetener
1 egg
1T ricotta cheese
1T heavy whipping cream
9 grams butter
1tsp lemon extract
1/2tsp vanilla extract
1/2tsp baking powder
Pink of sea salt

Melt your butter for 30 seconds, add your egg and sweetener, whisk till fully combined. Add your ricotta mixing well, might be clumpy just keep mixing till it’s almost smooth. Add your coconut flour, baking powder, & extracts. Whisk it till incorporated. This is where I added my heavy whipping cream. Mix mix mix
Spray a microwave safe bowl and transfer mixture to it. Smooth out & microwave for 1 minute, will still be wet and jiggly so add it in for another minute. Just to make sure I did another 30 seconds, 2 minutes 30 seconds total. You be the judge. Top with your favorite toppings like whip & ENJOY!
