I always struggle to get my daily protein intake target and this has made reaching my macros that little bit easier! I have a massive sweet tooth so this was perfect to incorporate as a healthy dessert alternative. Great tasting and quick and easy to make!

Surprisingly Enjoyable

I bought this not really having any expectations but it was quite good. It has a good taste and flavour. Whilst you can taste the protein flavour I didn’t think it was massively overpowering.

Pretty Tasty

I’ve tried a few of the mug cakes and have found the salted caramel to be my favorite. It took a few tries for me to figure out what works—at first I was a little disappointed that the flavor was a bit bland and the texture was a little strange. But once I got the consistency/cooking times right (and added a little sea salt and some dark chocolate chips), it was perfect—I found I preferred it to be a bit undercooked cause then it tasted like eating warm cookie dough. The chocolate and vanilla mug cakes are okay, but I haven’t quite found a combination I’ve loved yet, and the chocolate always seems a bit powdery to me no matter how many times I try it. The vanilla mix isn’t bad and I found out by accident that if you add a little of the vanilla mug cake mix to the True pancake mix, it actually makes for beautifully cooked, perfectly round pancakes—not sure why but it works and tastes great!

FAQs

Does True Mug Cake actually taste like cake?

True Mug Cake is a moist and delicious sweet treat without the sugar and saturated fats of similar products you might find in a supermarket.  Because it is sweetened with stevia, this taste is a little different to sugar sweetened cakes.

The texture is reminiscent of pudding and can easily be adjusted to suit your personal preference.  If you prefer a firmer cake, simply cook for a little longer in the microwave.  For those who like a more gooey consistency, you can add a little more liquid and cook for slightly shorter period.

What’s in True Mug Cake?

True Mug Cake contains a blend of high quality New Zealand grass-fed whey protein concentrate and milk protein concentrate, organic oat flour, natural cocoa and natural chocolate flavours with organic stevia for sweetening. Each serve of True Mug Cake contains 13.8g of carbohydrates, of which a low 1.6g is sugars, 2.0g of fat and 23.5g of protein. This makes True Mug Cake and easy treat to fit into your daily macro allowance.

With this macronutrient profile, True Mug Cake is a delicious, convenient and guilt-free treat you can keep handy in the pantry for when you are hit by a sweet craving.

How easy is it to make?

True Mug Cake can be made in 4 simple steps.

Add 1.5 large scoops of Mug Cake mix to a standard mug
Add 50ml of water or your favourite milk
Mix to a smooth paste
Microwave for 45-50 seconds until DING!

What flavours are available?

True Mug Cake comes in 4 delicious flavours so there’s sure to be one you’ll love.

Rich Chocolate (rich and indulgent, the perfect healthy treat for chocaholics)
French Vanilla (subtle hint of vanilla that pairs perfectly with your favourite toppings)
Lemon Cake (think lemon delicious pudding)
Apple & Cinnamon (just like apple pie)

Is the Mug Cake a treat or could it be a meal?

True Mug Cake is dense and filling, and with the addition of some extra toppings, such as Greek yogurt and berries, could make a light meal (depending on your appetite, of course!)

Do you have any tips on getting a good consistency for the True Mug Cake?

The texture and consistency of True Mug Cake will vary with a number of factors; how much liquid you add, how long you cook it, and the strength of your microwave oven.  You may need to experiment a little to achieve a consistency to suit your preference.  Many customers prefer to undercook True Mug Cake because they find it can get a little dry if overcooked.  Here are our top tips.

Microwave for slightly less time for a gooey consistency
Try microwaving in short bursts (eg. 15seconds) until you get the right consistency
If it seems to be drying out, add a little extra liquid to prevent it from drying out
Pour the milk or water in first and then the mug cake mixture

When is the best time to enjoy True Mug Cake?

The question really should be, when isn’t a good time for Mug Cake?! Here’s when our customers enjoy theirs:

After dinner for dessert
As a high protein snack for morning tea
To satisfy a mid-afternoon sweet craving
On a cold winter’s day when you need comfort food
Whenever you need a hit of chocolate (Rich Chocolate)
When the rest of the family is eating dessert!

What toppings are nice with True Mug Cake?

If you want to pimp your True Mug Cake, here are some ways to make it even better:

Top Apple & Cinnamon Mug Cake with crushed walnuts
Add Greek yogurt and chopped strawberries with a dusting of cinnamon onto the Rich Chocolate Mug Cake
Amp up the volume of Lemon Mug Cake with the addition of Greek yogurt and finely grated lemon zest
Fresh strawberries go well on top of Lemon Mug Cake
If coconut yogurt is your thing, try it on top of Rich Chocolate Mug Cake
Try Lemon Mug Cake topped with Greek yogurt and fresh blueberries
Stir in a spoonful of peanut butter, honey, or any spread that you like, before cooking
Top with your favourite HALO TOP ice cream
