This was awesome. I agree with slightly undercooking so that some of the batter acts as a sauce to moisten the cake. I loved it and it's a yummy way to hit your macro goals! !

I've had this chocolate mug cake for a while, and I don't touch it because I didn't like it before. But tonight I decided to give it another try. Still as bad as I remember. I love Myprotein, they're excellent in everything they do, but this is just not up to their high standard. The chocolate taste just isn't there. Its just so bland. Some people suggest a chocolate sauce, I just a teaspoon of Nutella on top and it helps add a chocolatey, smooth texture. Speaking of texture, that's the part I have the biggest problem with. You're stuck between having to undercook it and having a disgusting goo or having dry clumps of powder. Its macros are very good however, and would probably recommend it to someone on a strict diet, looking for something "sweet".

Goes Well With:

Nutella or chocolate sauce to add chocolateliness. Oil to add smoothness to the mix.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.

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.
