Low-Calorie Mug Cakes with Oozy Melting Chocolate

The proof is in the mug cake - take a look at this delightful photo and see if you can believe it's a little over 300 calories. The sweet melted chocolate oozing from the centre makes it seem like a sinful treat and we can vouch for the fact that is tastes like one.

At a fraction of the calories found in home-baked or shop-bought equivalents, this incredible pool of melting chocolate (real dark chocolate; not a dietary alternative) compliments the Lo-Dough cake casing which makes for an outstanding low-calorie dessert.

It's also super quick to rustle up

From raw ingredients to your plate in just 10 minutes... so treat yourself!

If you are calorie counting - this is one very rich dessert, why not share it with a friend for just 162 calories each? Frankly we wouldn't share ours with anyone...
