This fluffy mug cake is scented with lime zest for a light and citrusy finish. It’s not too sweet and ready in less than five minutes.
I had a really fun weekend with some good friends visiting, but I didn’t have much time for baking. I couldn’t imagine ending the weekend without a baked good, so this 5 minute mug cake was the perfect solution.
Last week I had lunch with CC and she gifted me with some great food items, including a jar of lime curd. I immediately wanted to make a lime mug cake with it, much like my lemony mug cake.
I decided to mix it up a little, with this oversized wide-rimmed cup. It ended being the perfect size for this mug cake.
I also have an easy Lime Coconut Mug Cake that takes just minutes to make! Or, if you’re serving more people, try my Olive Oil Cake with Lime.

What a fun idea, love this!
thank you! I love making these in the summer so I dont have to turn on the oven!
Oh yay! Now I know what to do with the lime curd! My husband and daughter like sour desserts more than me so this is perfect! : )
i hope they like it! thanks again for the jar! i loved using the lime curd this way. and the lime zest makes it more lime-y flavored, giving it that slight tartness because the curd is pretty sweet
