I’ve received some Mug Cakes from Dr. Oetker to try out.
“This calls for a challenge!”
So that’s exactly what I decided to do.
But a challenge wouldn’t be a challenge with just one brand or recipe, would it.
For this mini project of mine, Pinterest was my best friend!
I’ve seen soooooooo many Mug Cake recipes.
They all looked very tasty but I decided to go for the “moistest chocolate mug cake recipe”.
(I have to admit to have adapted a few things to that recipe)
First one is the Dr. Oetker Milk Chocolate Mug Cake
Very easy to make, no experience required.
Grab a mug, put the Mug Cake powder in it and add 50ml milk.
Mix it a bit together until it’s smooth.
Looks good. Nicely risen.
The texture is spongey. It’s light and fluffy.
But it also tastes quite chemical. Not like any homemade cake at all.
It also doesn’t makes me want to eat another one. Which, for me, says it all!
Let’s try the “moistest Chocolate Mug Cake”
Grab a bowl and put in 30g self-raised flour, 25g sugar, 15g cocoa powder and a pinch of salt.
Mix it a bit togther.
Add 75ml milk.
Make sure it’s completely smooth.
Grab a mug and add the batter. Add 1 teaspoon of Nutella on top of it.
Hmmm not as much risen as the other one.
Let’s start tasting!
The taste is completely different from Dr. Oetker!
It’s not fluffy or spongey but very dense.
This recipe doesn’t really taste like a homemade Chocolate Cake either…
And no, I didn’t make a second one. Dissapointed.
I think the biggest conclusion of this little project is that I don’t like Mug Cakes!
I know there must be people who really really like them. But I, unfortunately, don’t.
I guess I though a Mug Cake would be much more similar to a ‘real’ cake…
BUT I’m not planning on giving up!
