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. Goes Well With: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.Goes Well With:No Sugar Syrup
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
The taste is absolutely awful and the cake is inedible. I bought the chocolate flavour and deeply regret it. Buy Myprotein Cookies instead, they're terrific.Goes Well With:Your favourite dumpster.
Tastes amazing for what it is with good macros too, got it with the mystery bag in salted caramel flavourGoes Well With:A teaspoon of chocolate spread or peanut butter in it halfway through cooking
Super easy to make. my guilty pleasure! just add some dark chocolate chips throw it in the microwave. its perfection actually. not too sweet. and super high in protein. would definitely recommendGoes Well With:just as it is or dark chocolate chips
Amazing - new flavors please! But where’s the blueberry cheesecake gone? You do have to get the right sort of water or milk ratio to mix and cook well but all flavors are superb. Shame there aren’t more! Great treat or snack and with just a ping of the microwave. Works well for me personally with water as well as almond, soya or regular milks. Thanks Myprotein. Goes Well With:Water, any milk including non dairy versions. Oh, and then a spoon and my mouth!
Great with Milk or Almond Milk. As for water I would avoid. Milk gives it a creamy taste and spongey texture. But added water makes the mug cake solid, spongless and not great tasting. But great product and differently recommend using milk. Goes Well With:Milk, Almond Milk. Myprotein sugar-free syrup.
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. Goes Well With:Milk - in protein shake form
Absolutely hurrendous: tastes and looks nothing like a cake. Had one serving and won't be having another.Goes Well With:Nothing
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.
This is a review of the salted caramel. What an amazing quick desert, I love the fact theres hardly any prep or mess with these and you can have a pretty dam good hot sponge pudding within 2min. Make sure you don't overcook it though as it goes too dry. As soon as you see the spong appear at the top of the mug stop the microwave, they taste better underdone and a little gooey than overdone and dry. I then add some sugar free syrup or low calorie custard and tastes like the real thing.Goes Well With:Sugar free chocolate syrup, low calorie custard
With the mixed reviews, I thought I’d give this a try. Absolutely disgusting. Tasted like rubber! Would not recommend at all. Goes Well With:Nothing!
I have a very sweet tooth so wanted a dessert that would help increase my daily intake of protein but also nothing too sugary and high in calories. I read a lot of the reviews before I purchased this product and I am very pleased with it! It mixes well and is so easy to make for someone who has no culinary skills like me lol! I have just bought a bottle of myprotein syrup because it can be slightly dry on it's own but the chocolate flavour has a great taste and I am looking forward to ordering a different flavour! I would definitely recommend this if you are on a weight loss/fitness programme but also don't want to cut out dessert! Goes Well With:Semi Skimmed Milk
Not too bad if you just want a sweet fix it’s nothing like cake more like flavoured bread doesn’t look anything like the pic when it’s cooked it just goes flat and shrinks into its self taste is okay I got salted caramel but not as nice as other stuff I’ve had from here
Waste of money. Followed instructions carefully but bottom half was a soggy mess and top half was rubbery and inedible. Tried it with both water and milk but with the same soggy results both timesGoes Well With:Nothing
It tastes chocolately, but it has got a really weird rubbery consistency. I tried it a few times varying the amount of mix and trying with water or milk, but I couldn’t manage to choke down a whole serving. Goes Well With:Don’t.
After reading some of the reviews I was quite negative about that stuff but regardless, bought it and it turned out to be quite good but MyProtein pleeeeeeeeease make it less sweet it is almost impossible to eat it on more than once in a week basisGoes Well With:Water
The macros on this thing is amazing for what it's worth, other than that I do have to say that this isn't as sweet as you would expect. Which I find nice, you can always add extra stuff in it if you wish - I put a square of dark chocolate in the middle. What I like about it the most is that you can throw anything into the mix and its done in under a minute. Not to mention the fact that you can choose how much you make! Unlike other protein treats, this has it's own benefits. Goes Well With:Milk makes it perfect
Smells really nice, tastes awful. Goes Well With:Nothing it went in the bin
