My secret to the moist lemonade cake 

Yes, you heard it right. I call this recipe as my lemonade cake. After all it have everything that goes into a nice glass of lemonade. Freshly squeezed lemon or lime juice, sugar, a pinch of salt, and SODA!

How to serve these delicious lemon mug cakes to your guests?

As you can see, I have kept it simple here. I made these lemon mug cakes for the two of us and topped them with kafir lime flavored whipped cream sweetened with honey. Since we love the tang flavour of the kafir limes, I grated some lime zest over the top before serving.

In Delhi, we get some amazing kafir limes at CR Park Market, and whenever we visit, we always make sure to buy some for our desserts or to serve as an accompaniment to our Bengali side dishes.

But in case you are looking for a glaze for lemon cake, then you can always combine 1/4th cup of Icing sugar with a tablespoon lime juice till you get a pouring consistency. I love adding an extra depth of flavour to my drizzle for lemon cake, so I often add some thyme or rosemary to it. Do not forget to add a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness.
