The other day when I was preparing chili fish, I had used egg white and had leftover egg yolk and some lemon curd in my refrigerator with 2-3 limes so I decided it was time for me to bake small moist, fluffy lime cake

I usually prepare mug cakes as they are simple, easy and can satisfy small dessert cravings however this time I decided to bake a small cake , just for me and hubby. It really was too delicious for words, this is one of the perfect cake for lemon lovers

You would love the taste of lemon in each and every bite. Do try this recipe and share your experience

Preparation time: 10 mins Baking time: 18 mins Total tine: 28 mins

Servings : 2-3


  • 3 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 6 tbsp flour
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 3 tbsp whisked curd
  • zest of 1/2 -1 lemon – adjust
  • 1/8 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/8 teaspoon baking soda
  • 5 teaspoon neutral flavored oil
  • 4 tbsp – 6 tbsp sugar

For Lemon sugar glaze

  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 1-2 teaspoon lemon juice

Steps to prepare

  • Add egg yolk and sugar in a bowl. The lemon juice I used was quite tart so I added 6 tbsp sugar and reduced lemon zest quantity. For regular lemons, 4 tbsp sugar is enough
  • Whisk ingredients well for 4-5 minutes
  • Add lemon juice, curd, zest , oil and whisk well until well combined
  • Sieve and add all dry ingredients to the bowl

  • Whisk until well combined
  • Pour the batter into prepared cake tin. I use silicon strips, they help me prepare pan of dimensions I need. I have made into 4 inch tin
  • Bake for 18-20 minutes in preheated oven at 170 deg cel until toothpick inserted into centre comes out clean. Allow the cake to cool for 20 minutes and then demould and cool completely
  • I have used lemon curd frosting on top. You can do lemon sugar glaze on top. Mix sugar and lemon juice to form thick -thin glaze as desired. Slice and serve this moist fluffy, tart, sweet lemon cake
