This scrumptious blackberry lemon mug cake is macro-friendly and ready in less than 5 minutes. In my case, it came out so piping hot and delicious that it didn't even last 2 minutes after taking pretty pictures! The mug cake is about the size of a large muffin, so it's satisfying for 250 calories. This would make the perfect dessert when you're craving something fruity, but it also serves as a delicious breakfast! Yes, I eat cake for breakfast…often.
