As we choose not to include chemicals and preservatives sadly some of the satchels have gone hard due to air/moisture. Rest assured they are perfectly fine and will dissolve when you add to the butter and cream.
Due to ingredient supply issues we’ve had to alter our flour blend to a new style of soy flour. You now may notice a legume smell and taste in batter form; however the great news is this cooks off perfectly with no effect to the finished product however no more licking the spoon 😊.
The reason this happens is we chose to leave out the egg. As per the back of our box you’re welcome to add ½ – 1 egg to your premix if you prefer a more soufflé texture – which is the traditional way a Mug Cake is prepared. This texture wasn’t to my liking so I chose to leave out the egg and create more a brownie and self-sauce pudding texture. This is perfect as the extra space also allows for a nice big dollop of ice cream or cream. It may feel like you don’t have enough but at 80g per brownie/pudding and a the extra ice cream or cream I’m sure one will be plenty!
Information about our new brownie recipe: Thank you for your calls and emails about our popular Choc Fudge Brownie. I understand some of you prefer the original recipe and want to apologise to you for the change. Due to production and supply costs we had to move to this new style or remove our brownies from sale. As the ingredients are the same the great news is you can still make it the same ol way if you prefer. Simply sift out the choc pieces and prepare as previously (melt the choc pieces with 120g/6 Tablespoons of butter; add the remaining cake mix and two eggs). Alternatively you can cook the new brownie a little less for a fudgy but still cakey brownie.
