  • 8 tablespoons All-purpose flour

  • 4 tablespoons granulated sugar

  1. In a small bowl mix all the dry ingredients. (This can be mixed directly in your microwave safe large mug or ramekin if it's large enough).

  2. Add all wet ingredients including shredded zucchini and mix until all dry bits are incorporated.

  3. Microwave for 1.5 to 2 minutes - checking at the 1.5 minute mark. It will still be a little moist in the very center. (if you've split the batter between 2 separate mugs - start out with 1 minute in the microwave to adjust for the smaller container)

  4. Drizzle with lemony frosting and zest (optional)
