Chocolate Lime Skinny Mug Cake

My favourite sweets when I was younger were Chocolate Limes. A wonderful tart but yet boiled sweet outer combined with the hidden treat of a delicious chocolate centre. I remember sucking them until my tongue went sore!

It was this thought that inspired me to make a gorgeous and different Chocolate Lime Skinny Mug Cake

The benefits of using Lo-Dough for your Mug cakes instead of flour are fantastic. Lo-Dough is incredibly low in carbs, low in calories and has filling power. It’s also gluten free. Mug cakes really are so filling, full of healthy ingredients and also gorgeous breakfast.

To make a Chocolate Lime Skinny Mug Cake you will need

A microwaveable Mug and of course a microwave!

A food processor


1 piece of Lo-Dough blitzed into fine breadcrumbs – can be purchased here Low calorie bread alternative

1 extra large egg

The zest and 1 tablespoon of lime juice from a freshly squeezed lime

2 tsp sweetener of your choice

10gms dark chocolate


In a bowl combine all the breadcrumbs, egg, lime zest, lime juice and sweetener, mix thoroughly. Spoon half the mix into your mug and make a well. Place the chocolate into the well and cover with the rest of the mixture. Place your mug cake in the microwave for two minutes. Leave to stand for five minutes – your mug cake will continue to cook during this time. Loosen the cake from the cup with a knife and turn onto a plate. Serve with fat free yoghurt and fresh fruit such as kiwi
