Food | Dr Oetker Pud in a Mug review


On this baking hot day it seems impossible that a couple of weeks back we were enjoying/enduring a rainy half term. British summers, eh? But we were. It got to that time in the afternoon when the boys were driving me and each other a bit potty. What to do? In an effort to keep the peace and fend of any potential hangriness (and boy, do my kids do a good line in hangry!), we headed into the kitchen in search of something to eat.

Apparently, I'm a terrible mother because I rarely give the kids pudding and if they are lucky, it's a yogurt. More likely, I tell them to help themselves to something from the fruit bowl. Their little faces when I pulled out a couple of these Dr Oetker Pud in a Mug sachets – I went from worst. mum. ever. to something resembling Father Christmas.

And the best bit? The instructions are easy enough for a six-year-old to follow.

Both boys got to work making their own Sticky Toffee pudding and managed it all by themselves.

It's a straightforward process – pour contents into a mug, add milk, mix well, cook in the microwave for 50 seconds and Bob's your uncle (ours is less powerful than 800W so took 10-20 seconds longer).

The worst bit? The boys had to wait a little for their puddings to cool down and they are not good at being patient.

But it was worth the wait and both wolfed down their sticky, sweet treats, even remembering to put their mugs and spoons in the dishwasher (after a little bit of drawing). Win!

Are you a fan of mug cakes or desserts? Are you a nicer mum than me and give your kids pudding every day? Leave me a comment to let me know.

Dr Oetker himself sent us these puddings to review but all content is our own.
