Sometimes it’s easy to be plain lazy right? Recently on a night in with Mummy Pond we tried out the new Pud in a Mug from Dr Oetker.
Instead of playing around with finding the right recipe for your microwave or trial and error with ingredients, these Pud in a Mug sachets are there to make life easy.
I’m not gonna lie here, I seriously enjoyed breaking out my Christmas mugs for this affair. They’re both from Waitrose and I think they’re brilliant!
We had a go with a couple of packets to see what we liked. Breaking out a gooey Velvety Dessert and the Chocolate Chip sponge. There are very simple instructions on the back of the packet, and it mainly just involves measuring the right amount of milk out!
I would definitely recommend stirring the Chocolate Chip one half way through, I didn’t and I had a giant clump of chocolate in the middle. Not a bad thing, but it did make it a bit solid! We decorated our puds with squirty cream and sprinkles, because why not?!
I did leave a few packets with Mummy Pond as she was quite taken with them. The self saucing Chocolate Cake was a hit, as well as the Dark Chocolate Sponge Cake. The Velvety Pud was not such a hit both times we tried it, it’s also a little easier to over do it… See the above pic for proof!
So yeah, if you wanna be lazy when it comes to dessert on a night in but have a bit of fun making them at the same time I’d definitely suggest the Pud in a Mug cakes. If you manage to perfect the Velvety Pud let me know your trick!
Have you made your own Pud in a Mug? Would you be lazy or even lazier and just buy a cake? Let me know in the comments,
P.S. Thanks Dr Oetker for sending us some packets to try out. As ever all photos and words my own.
