In my last post, I talked about our cozy pizza night in but I didn’t mention the most important part, the pudding! Everyone will know by now I have a super sweet tooth, and if there is one thing I’ve LOVED about being pregnant, it has been the excuse to get stuck in and eat lots of treats, without worrying too much about the size of my hips. I’ll worry about that after February! I also think the baby has a sweet tooth too as a lot of my cravings have revolved around sugar too.
So, as we were having a date night, we had the movie playing and wanted to spend as much time chilling out (i.e- not in the kitchen!) so I cooked us a couple of these really quick and easy Pud in a Mug desserts which are a new product in the Dr Oetker range. I’ve seen all the 1 minute mug-cake recipes on Pinterest, and as simple as they look I’ve never actually given them a go as creating the mixture is still going to take a bit of time, plus of course mess – if you are like me! The Pud in a Mug sachets literally take away all effort, they are so easy and perfect for a lazy date night. All you have to do is add milk to the mixture in your favourite mug (mine is from here!) and stir. Microwave for less than a minute and your warm, delicious pudding is ready! Ta Daa!
I’m always a bit sceptical about ready-mix cakes, but these are actually really delicious and the perfect warm pudding for a chilly night. The best part for me is that the top is lovely, spongey and warm, but as you delve deeper into your mug, the bottom is pure gooey, rich chocolate sauce, yum!
The range includes a variety of flavours – my favourite is the Rich Chocolate Sponge Pudding (pictured!), but you can also get Chocolate Chip and Lemon Sponge and Milk or Dark Chocolate Velvety Dessert too. Sachets can be picked up in all major supermarkets and are priced at £0.79. For creative ideas on your #PudInAMug, take a look at their Instagram here.
