Madame Loulou Mug Cake

Have you ever tried making a simple brownie using the microwave oven?

Well, I have always wanted to try it but every time I look at the list of ingredients that I have to buy, it somehow makes me change my mind.

Fortunately though, I found a product that would allow me to make a brownie/cupcake without the added fuss.

When I visited “All About Baking” along Quezon Avenue, I came across some products from “Madame Loulou”. What got my attention was the different all-in-one mixes that they were offering. Believe me, there were a lot of easy-to-cook and easy-to-bake items from Madame Loulou that were on display. I was very tempted to buy everything but since it was a new brand to me, I decided to just purchase one so I could test it out first. I went for the red velvet flavor since it’s one of my favorite types of cakes.

Their red velvet flavored mug cake costs Php99. I don’t know if others might find it expensive or not but I thought that if I would to buy every ingredient needed to make a single-serving of brownie/cake, it would cost me more since I’d have to buy each ingredient in packs.

With Madame Loulou’s Mug Cake, the only thing I needed to add was either water or milk. That was it. Very simple, right?

The preparation was also very easy so I didn’t have to spend so much time to finish everything.

I decided to go with milk instead of water in hopes that the cake would be creamier. I poured 50ml of milk in one of my mugs and then slowly, I added the powder into the mix. Their instruction says that I should whip it energetically with a spoon so I did exactly just that.

After mixing the powder and the milk in a mug, I then placed the mug inside the microwave oven. In their list of instructions, they gave 3 microwave options: (1) cook the mug in a microwave oven at 750W for 1 minute and 25 seconds (2) or cook at 850W for 1 minute and 20 seconds (3) or cook at 1000W for 1 minute and 5 seconds.

After microwaving it for 1 minute and 5 seconds (at 1000W), I removed the mug from the microwave and let it rest for 2 minutes, as instructed.

The mug cake did look yummy at first glance. It also smelled good. However, when I tried it, I didn’t like the taste as much. It was quite dense and the flavors were a bit strong for my liking. I ended up not finishing it because the flavor was a bit overwhelming. I don’t know if the taste could have been better if I had added either a scoop of ice cream or some cream cheese on top of it but I do think that I should not have to add anything on it just to make it taste decent. It should be able to stand on its own but, unfortunately, it failed.
