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.

Common sense and a spoon.

I bought this on a whim as addition to an order I was already making and I was pleasantly surprised. This cakey treat is quick and simple to make and you don't need to heat up the oven or make a big batch. If you're craving a bit of pudding in the evening or looking for a bit of extra protein, you can be eating this in under 5 mins. A bit of no sugar syrup is a good addition to this too. I bought chocolate but I look forward to exploring the other flavours.

Love love love this. Mixes well, hits protein macros and if you slightly undercook the batter it's perfect as it has some to keep it moist. My top tip would be a teaspoon of Nutella or choc spread. Makes it choccy and smooth and would never know it's a protein dessert as takes edge off. You know it's good when you are thinking about it at lunch time ;-)

Goes Well With:

Teaspoon of choc spread

I have tried this in the chocolate flavour and found it to be very nice and clean, natural tasting just like advertised, i did not prepare it properly first time and just added boiled water from the kettle to try and get by, this does make a great sludge like dessert but is not what this product is designed to be, yesterday i tried it again only this time i popped into a microwave on high for 30 seconds and left to stand for another 60 seconds and was surprised that there was a massive difference and it actually resembled a risen mug cake. This tastes awesome in chocolate and is a flavour that i would recommend that you try out, it is not overly sweet so you can add some dextrose powder or honey / maple syrup or if on a calorie and sugar controlled diet the awesome zero syrups from my protein in the golden or maple versions. 5/5 awesome super tasting protein based food, If you found value in this review then please use discount code geoff-rdt (in capitals) for up to 85% off on order based on offers.

As a cake it's not the best, looks like a brown sponge and tastes like a brown sponge, BUT just pop it in your shaker like you would normal protein powder, mix it with milk and it tastes great, so even if you don't like the cake, you can have an alright protein shake.

Milk - in protein shake form

wow this is fantastic!! was already a fan of the protein pancakes but the chocolate Mug Cake Mix is so nice. Not to sweet and when cooked for 50sec leaves a lovely chocolate sauce on the top of the cake. I mixed it in a shaker bottle, sprayed some cooking spray on the mug, tipped mix into mug and put in the microwave for 50sec, tipped out onto a plate and enjoyed it!! so simple an soooo tasty! and simple, did I already say that?!?. I can REALLY recommend this product. Thanks MYPROTEIN you did it again!

Goes Well With:

Use Vanilla Protein Pudding as a custard alternative.

I find this product to be an effective nutritional supplement for aiding the transportation of fat to be burned as an energy source when you are in a calorie deficit and it helps to target the stubborn fat stores around the abs, upper thighs and hips of love handles. These areas are normally the last to go and require great dedication, discipline and patience to get rid of, this product works well I feel to speed up progress but does take a week or two to kick in and build up in your system. Great fat burning product use discount code for flat 25% off.

I've wasted loads of servings of this trying to get it right in the microwave - I haven't once been able to get anything edible out of doing it that way. I've found baking the mix in silicone cake cups in the oven has worked best for me, so try that if you can't get it how you like with the microwave. Texture is a bit rubbery compared to normal cake but the taste is pretty nice!

A bit disappointing. The taste is okay but when I have it, it either comes out over cooked and like a cleaning sponge or it comes out undercoooked like with a sludge like consistency.

I have tried other versions of mug cake mixes from elsewhere in the past, but this version in the salted caramel is sublime, it is the best and beats all of the rest for texture and flavour profile. it mixes perfectly when cooked as per instructions provided and makes a great meal replacement / protein based snack any time of the day and works well to cure and sweet tooth cravings.

Was a bit sceptical about this purchase after reading the reviews but am pleasantly surprised! Really nice texture, good taste, perfect for that naughty treat while getting an extra boost of protein. Only thing I would say, is the packet didn't actually have instructions on how to make it on it...not sure what happened there but after a quick search on the website here, found a recipe. I picked the chocolate flavour and made it with milk, not water, and was very nice indeed.

Had high hopes for this product as I'm a chocoholic. Followed the instructions and put it in the microwave for 50 seconds, came out like an old sponge. Tasted okay but a bit dry. Was much better when I added some sugar free syrup! Overall was edable, doubtful that I would order the product again though.
