This tropical tasting mug cake would make a zingy breakfast or a delicious dessert

There's nothing like the zing of fresh lime to perk up a sweet cake. Coupled with grated fresh coconut, this sweet breakfast/dessert brings a truly tropical taste to the table. You could easily add fruit to this - think mango, pineapple or passion fruit - approx. 100g of either would work. 

But we've gone with a plain a low-calorie, low-carb simple sponge and it's delicious just as it is!

Ingredients

Serves 1
  • 1 piece of Lo-Dough, blitzed to fine crumbs
  • 1 large egg, beaten
  • 2 teaspoons of fat free yoghurt
  • The juice and zest of half a lime
  • 30g of grated fresh coconut
  • 2 dessert spoons of erythritol sweetener
  • Half a teaspoon of vanilla paste

Method

  1. Add the Lo-Dough, egg, lime zest and juice, coconut, vanillia, yoghurt and sweetener to a bowl and mix well .
  2. Line a mug with a small piece of grease proof paper.
  3. Cook in a microwave for 2-3 minutes (depending on wattage). After 2 minutes take out and check by pressing the bottom of the mug cake. It should feel firm to touch, with a little bounce.
  4. Take out and leave to stand in the mug for a further minute before turning out onto a plate. Serve with yoghurt and an extra grating of lime zest.
