When Darrell and Nigel were Poundshop shopping in The Homeland last week Darrell made a considered purchase of two packets of Dr Oetker lemon flavour Pud in A Mug (2 for £1), thinking that they might make an interesting Microwave Pudding Review.
And on their return to The Towers Nigel, naturally, was a most willing assistant in their testing.
It couldn’t have been more simpler, all they had to do was put 4 tablespoons of milk into a mug, add the contents of the packet and mix until smooth ….. making wishes as they whisked at Nigel’s insistence …………. before putting in the microwave for 90 seconds at 600mph.
All bode well ……
….. but the proof of the pudding, they say, is in the eating…….
…… and it has to be said, that it on this occasion Dr Oetker’s lemon pud in a mug disappointed and was found wanting by our “experts”.
The pud was spongy, but in an artificial microwave type way, which then gave way to a very distinct chewiness which in turn lacked a preferred comely moistness. Custard may have helped, but would still have not hidden the rubbery undertones it would be disguising.
For 50pm it was worth a punt, but sadly a punt that will not be repeated at The Towers, as Nigel and Darrell only awarded it a most emphatic and paltry 0.98 on their Pud in a Mug scale of almost none existent noms. Oh well, onwards and upwards hopefully for their next pudding review.http://www.oetker.co.uk/uk-en/our-products/home-baking/pud-in-a-mug/product-range/pud-in-a-mug-sponge-pudding/pud-in-a-mug-lemon.html
NB:- for all those concerned for Darrell’s diet, all “SYNS” were accounted for during this review and no Darrell’s weight loss was not in any way hindered.
