The Mug cake looks the business. Its everything else what's wrong with it. It is absolutely revolting. Waste of money and I think I'll have to throw the whole thing away after one serving if I cannot think of a healthy option or making it taste horrendous.Goes Well With:dust bin
Have tried the salted caramel and chocolate. Salted caramel is much better, but the chocolate is ok. Mixed 50g with 70mls almond milk, and microwaved for 70 seconds as prefer it on the dryer side. Dollop of Greek yogurt on top, tasty treat.Goes Well With:Greek yogurt
I was pleasantly surprised with how nice this tasted to be honest. After reading previous reviews I thought id give it a go as anything with cake and protein in had me to curious to leave out mt order. If you use 50g of mix and 70ml water it microwaves in about 45 secs and does have a chocolatey cake like taste. It's not cadburys, but would recommend for the price and macros.Goes Well With:A mug
I just tried the salted caramel flavour, and pure wow is all I can say. I read some of the reviews that the cake can tend to be a bit dry, so I mixed it with water and put it in the microwave for 46 instead of the recommended 50 seconds. This left some the of cake batter unbaked, which acted more like a cake batter sauce that moistened the cooked bits of cake. For someone who has been guilty of making micro-sized cakes after having eaten most of the batter, this was my idea. Pure lush is all I can say. What a delicious treat.Goes Well With:a spoon
I bought the chocolate flavour mug cake to try as I always struggle to eat enough protein, and was pleasantly surprised! They're super quick and easy to make, satisfy my sweet cravings without the guilt, are great for my macros (which I'm still trying to figure out), and keep me full! Although the cake itself is a bit dry, you can easily add in chocolate chips, whip up some custard or mash up some fruit to go with it. I've only tried making it with water, so maybe using milk would help too.Goes Well With:Chocolate chips, chocolate spread, homemade raspberry coulis
I bought this item as my major downfall isn't my diet per se but having an insatiable sweet tooth, either after dinner or just a choccy craving...as many can empathise with. The product mixes well and I opt to leave it in the microwave for a full minute as I prefer a harder, more substantial cakey texture (it takes me longer to eat and is less wet so there is method in my madness). The product is surprisingly filling, which is great and ticks so many boxes but the major one: taste. Having read all the rave reviews, I was really excited to delve into the bag and scoop out the goodness but upon taste, it is an artificial, almost floural scent and to me, not pleasant. I've tried other chocolate weight loss / high protein products (not MyProtein i would like to add) and have found them to be similar tasting and given them away to my partner. I shall persist as it is filling and hits the spot but I think I may add some raw cacao powder or something else to make it taste better. I'm hoping the Blueberry Cheesecake is nicer.
Not one to write reviews but felt compelled after using this product. Easy to mix, surprisingly good taste and great macros. Perfect for the late night chocolate cravings that I seem to battle with daily. Will be stocking up on this stuff!
Great idea being able to give to that option of having sweet treat before or after training, the flavours are amazing. However as the title says it doesn't tell you how to use this product, gives you no instructions on how to use it or what to add to it i.e. Like water or milk. This isn't helpful for anyone e that's buying this product for the first time.
I love the protein cake mix in natural chocolate flavor. I like the spongy texture. It is light and fluffy. It really satisfies cravings anytime of the day. I have it for breakfast sometimes. It has inulin added to it and that keeps me feeling full for longer.Goes Well With:Coffee
I bought this mix as I was looking for an alternative mid-afternoon snack that could satisfy me. In the past I would have a protein bar but would then end up eating sweets on top of that. This has definitely stopped it! I purchased the salted caramel flavour and it tasted incredible, still a moist sponge as well and not too dry. I used skim milk with mine to add in extra calories but it tasted very good! Good price and effective for what I wanted to achieve with it. Only downside I had was that some of it was stuck to the inside of the mug but that isn't really a major disadvantage so still gave it 5 stars overall, that was down to the mix ability of it I thought not being an even mixture throughout. However still overall a fantastic product!
Great! Love it! So yummy and just wasn't expecting it to be as good as this! Great for a naughty treat (which isn't actually that naughty at all!) - will def be getting more of these. Easy to mix, just follow the recipe. I copied someone else who halfway through, adds some choc chips which makes it extra special lol.Goes Well With:Water and choc chips
Tastes amazing for what it is with good macros too, got it with the mystery bag in salted caramel flavourGoes Well With:A teaspoon of chocolate spread or peanut butter in it halfway through cooking
This was obviously never going to be the nicest thing in the world but it's quite tasty and definitely works to satisfy a craving. The flavour was a bit lacking but I might try it with milk and use flavour drops next time.Goes Well With:water
This is not normally something I would buy, but it came in the black Friday mystery bag. I was feeling like something sweet tonight so I tentatively thought I would give it a go. Within a minute I had a delicious cake in a mug! Very impressed, will be sure to buy again.Goes Well With:An extra serving
I was so excited about trying this, made it and the protein custard the night they arrived, to 2 scoop suggestion... it was huge! Couldn't finish it, lasted two days, so I've been having "half" portions. The cake itself tastes amazing raw when I lick the fork I've used to mix it, but it loses that kick when cooked, pretty tasteless aside from settling a nice sweet craving. I have it with the custard & sugar free chocolate syrup, can't eat it without custard and/or syrup Goes Well With:Protein custard or sugar free syrup
Bought this as a pudding and for that sweet craving. Got the salted Carmel! It tastes amazing! Tiny bit of chocolate sauce and you have a amazing pudding. Just follow what it says, don't try to bake into a cake or anything stupid! Consistency is a bit weord at first but very very nice! The macros are so good as well! Sweet craving sorted!
I thought I'd give this a try after reading the reviews. Obviously some have mixed opinions on this. I love it! I don't have it every day, but when I need a hit of chocolate or a quick snack whilst at work this is amazing! It's so hard to get a high in protein, low in fat and reasonable on calories product!! It's so quick to make and can be eaten on its own or with fruit. Goes Well With:On its own, yogurt and frozen berries
very easy to make, but not really nice taste.. I tried chocolate flavour
Chocolate was Nice. Not too swret and pleaseant to eat Blueberry cheesecake was horrible artifical taste in a bad way and aftertaste. Uneatable will probably unfortuneately throw it.
If you follow the instructions on the pack then you get a very tasty cake in a mug that's ready in a couple of minutes. After reading some of the reviews on here about people winging it, trying to bake the mix and then not being able to eat the results... honestly, what did you expect? Do you ever ignore the info on the pack and try steam cooking your pizza? No. FYI salted caramel flavour was great, look forward to trying blueberry next. Goes Well With:Common sense and a spoon.
