I couldn't taste the lemon flavor. I also microwaved it in 2 shallow bowls instead of a mug with no overflow. Read More

Quick and tasty. Use a few drops lemon extract if you want a stronger lemon taste. Use a giant mug or two medium ones. Use only half a large beaten egg if large is all you have on hand. Read More
