Dr Oetker Pud in a Mug

Dr Oetker Pud in a Mug range are delicious hot desserts cooked in under two minutes in a mug making them super quick, easy and with minimal effort required. Ideal if you are home alone and want a quick treat but equally good for all the family and they can each pick their favourite flavours for dessert.

Available in a variety of tasty flavours:

  • Sticky Toffee
  • Rich Chocolate
  • Chocolate Chip
  • Milk Chocolate
  • Dark Chocolate

We couldn’t wait to try a few of them out and the children were keen to get involved measuring out tablespoons of milk into their mugs and then stirring in the mix from the packet.

You then simply pop each one into the microwave for the required time, anything from 50-90 seconds depending on the flavour.  As these were new to us we decided to share the mug cakes and put them in the centre of the table so we could tuck in to each on and check them out.

So the results are in for Dr Oetkers Pud in a Mug desserts!

Rich Chocolate was a firm favourite by all of us closely followed by the new addition to the range Sticky Toffee.  The Chocolate Chip was ok but didn’t turn out as good as the others, the ones with a gooey sauce were definitely better and ones we’d consider using again.

So all in all  the Dr Oetker Pud in a Mug cakes are a success.  Considering how quick they take in the microwave, you can’t fault them and all you need to add is a little milk.  Also there is minimal mess with just a mug and spoon being used.  For a quick treat for one or to give people a choice of flavour they are a great solution for dessert ideas but for me I think they make a perfect store cupboard buy so you can grab one whenever you fancy a gooey hot dessert in an instant!
