Lemon Glaze Coffee Mug cake makes a great gift.

Prep Time: 1 hour

Fun Cake in a mug, Member fiestylucy

Thank you for sharing this recipe. This is a great idea to make for gifts of all occasions. Especially in these times of trying to save as much money as we can and still have gifts to give and hardly any money to do so. This month, I have 5 birthdays and I plan to make each one a cake in a mug for the occasion. I know already that this will be a keeper in my kitchen and will have fun with it. This will be a moist cake and just the right amount to serve without any tempting to eat the whole cake later......Good job. Anymore hints like this will be appreciated. Fiesty Lucy
