Dr. Oetker Mug Cake – Review



I’m Just Average Teen Me. I’ve never tried to do a review post, but I thought I would spice up the contents of my blog and give it a go! So, today I will be reviewing the Dr Oetker Mug Cake. Earlier on in the day, I tried the “Rich Chocolate” one, so that’s what I will be focusing on in this post. I have also tried the Lemon one, but that was a couple months ago so it isn’t as fresh in my memory.

First of all, if you want something super quick, and super easy to make, then this is perfect in that aspect. All you have to do is grab a cup, shake in the powder, splash in some milk and throw it in the microwave. Please don’t actually throw it; that won’t end well, I assure you.

I will admit, I actually thought it tasted nicer as a liquid… But it might be too nice on your stomach if you don’t warm it up first.

So, if you use a huge cup, then you should be fine, but if you have a smaller one, then you might want to put some kitchen roll or something under the cup just in case of a spillage. My cup, alternatively, was huge. So when I opened the microwave and saw that only half had filled up, I was a tad disappointed.

Back to “super quick”. If your mouth is sensitive to heat, and you burn yourself quite easily, I would say that it isn’t quite as super quick. Although it did cool down kind of quickly? Personally, I am fine with hot stuff, probably because I have porridge on school mornings, and it probably isn’t cooled down enough by the time I shovel it into my mouth… So in that aspect, I’m safe. But take caution if you’re heat sensitive.

The actual taste of the cake was quite tasty, but not as good as the recipe that I posted earlier on in the year. You an read that here. The texture (agh I feel like a food critic) was very nice, it was quite light and airy so it didn’t stuff you until you literally exploded from food. So yeah.

At the end, though, I had quite a bit of powder left in the bottom, but that could just be because I suck at stirring. Anyways, if you end up with powder left, do not eat it. It’s gross and, well – powdery.

Otherwise it was very nice and I enjoyed it very much. ❤

My Favourite Recipe Ever!


I’m Just Average Teen Me. Today, as you have probably got from the title, I’ll be sharing my favourite recipe ever. I mentioned it in my last post, Relaxing, and I thought I would bless you all with how to make it. Trust me, if you like any cake (Who doesn’t?), you will love this as much as I do ❤

I should probably tell you that it’s a chocolate mug cake, so a cake, in a mug. Perfection.


If you want to make this (please do if you have the time!) you will need:

1/4 cup of flour (all purpose)

2tbsp Cocoa powder (I love to use the Cadbury’s hot chocolate one)

1/4 tsp baking powder

1/4 tsp salt (I usually skip this one out, though, don’t want too much salt in there!)

2tbps sugar (you can add more or take some if you want)

1/4 + 1tbsp milk

2tbsp vegetable oil (NOT olive oil! I used olive once and it was disgusting – don’t do it 😀 )

Hazelnut spread/Nutella (if you want. I like it normal, though)


And here are the instructions!

  1. Get a bowl, and mix together the flour, chocolate powder, sugar, baking powder and salt (if you’re using it).
  2. Mix in the milk and vegetable until there are no clumps or dry bits, making sure to get the powder from the edges of the bowl! It’s quite easy to make this one smooth so it shouldn’t take long at all.
  3. Find a big, microwave-safe, mug (the biggest one you have, to avoid overflowing and big messes)
  4. If you are using chocolate spread, put it into the middle now. Just drop it off the spoon, no need to swish or push it around.
  5. Put a paper towel/ kitchen roll into the microwave, so that if your cake overflows, it won’t trash your microwave
  6. Put the mug in, and microwave for around 70 seconds. If it isn’t ready straight away (still soft and gooey, which sometimes I like if it’s only a bit, it’s safe because there isn’t any egg) then put it in for another 10-20 seconds and check again.
  7. Be very careful because it will probably be quite hot!
  8. ENJOY!
  9. Make it again because you will want another 😀

And that, my friends is how to make heaven in a mug! I hope you try it out, and love it as much as I do! Let me know if you make it! ❤
