The UK’s leading home baking brand, Dr. Oetker, has added a new flavour to its Pud in a Mug range.

Pud in a Mug Banana and Choc Chip (rrp £0.85) can be cooked in the microwave in just 90 seconds to create a soft textured banana flavoured sponge with gooey chocolate chips.

Jan McKee, executive head of marketing at Dr. Oetker UK, said: “We’re delighted to announce the launch of our brand new Pud in a Mug flavour. The convenient range has been hugely popular with consumers so far, and with the growing trend of banana bread, the new flavour was an obvious choice.

“Pud in a Mug is an easy way to make warm sponge puddings and offers consumers more choice in their dessert options.”

The range of puddings and desserts are the simplest way to enjoy a warm treat; just add milk, mix and microwave for a tasty treat.

The product is available for major and independent retailers now.
