1 packet options, 1 beaten egg and a little sweetener, whisk all together and pop in microwave for 1min.

Apparently.

I've never had a chocolate omelette before. Not keen to have one ever again, to be honest.

If anyone has tried this where am I going wrong!?

grin sounds disgusting!

MrGeresHamster Fri 24-Jan-14 18:37:58

Is there no flour? I would expect flour...

Yes-surely it needs flour...

SamHamwidge Fri 24-Jan-14 18:42:43

Apparently not.

MrGeresHamster Fri 24-Jan-14 18:43:13

Ok according to google you are meant to whisk the egg first, then fold in the other ingredients... still the reviews mention tasting/looking like chocolate omelette.

Sounds horrible.

SamHamwidge Fri 24-Jan-14 18:44:04

If you Google it this are the ingredients (or you can use cocoa, not sure if that makes a difference) and full of people waxing lyrical about how great it is.

It isn't.

GoofyIsACow Fri 24-Jan-14 18:44:06

Sounds truly hideous!

Alibabaandthe40nappies Fri 24-Jan-14 18:44:10

So that would be

Sweetner - from the Options.
Egg
More Sweetner.

Fucking horrible.

This is why diets are shit, because they make you eat non-food that just leaves you hungrier than ever when it is so revolting.

Yes surely flour??

Just watched the youtube video for that, looks good, not like omelette though

Yuk

I'd rather be er..... fat grin

No, no you're doing it wrong.

4tbsp flour
4tbsp sugar
2tbsp cocoa (I use cadbury drinking choc - NOT the instant drink kind)
1 egg
3 tbsp milk
3 tbsp oil (although I use melted butter)
3 tbsp choc chips (optional)
a splash of vanilla extract
a very large mug (or pudding basin :D)

Add dry ingredients to the mug/basin and mix well. Add egg and mix. Pour in milk and oil (or butter) and mix again. Add choc chips if using and vanilla extract. Mix.

Nuke for 3 mins at 1000W. Leave to stand a bit so it cools.

Oh wait, I've just realised you're talking slimming world - no my version isn't that slimming, but it tastes MUCH nicer :D :D :D

Rubber

That's actual cake - tasty shit. Not slimming world diet 'cake'.

RubberDuck Fri 24-Jan-14 18:51:44

Yeah, I think diet 'cake' would just make me sad sad

2kidsintow Fri 24-Jan-14 18:52:56

Do you have to separate the egg, whip up the white, then fold the rest in? Then it's like a low fat souffle thing.

RubberDuck Fri 24-Jan-14 18:53:44

Mind you, I have just engineered all my calories and macros for the day to budget in two glasses of wine for this evening. I'm not entirely sure that I have this diet stuff sussed...

SamHamwidge Fri 24-Jan-14 18:55:32

I agree - will stop trying to fake it and just have a small bar of chocolate. Lesson learnt!

TimeToPassGo Fri 24-Jan-14 18:59:05

That sounds like the worst 'treat' ever invented! grin

Headlikeafuckingorange Fri 24-Jan-14 19:05:37

There's an eggy Swiss roll thing too. My colleague was raving about it but it's vile. I would rather go without cake than eat something like that!

HappyGoLuckyGirl Fri 24-Jan-14 19:23:21

I'm on SW too. When I saw this cake in a cup recipe I was grin

I made it, tasted it and was sad

Basically a chocolate omelette. Boo.

But I do like the SW plan. I'm about to make pasta with a tomato, feta cheese and sweetcorn sauce. I can have as much as I want. Back to grin

BabyMummy29 Fri 24-Jan-14 19:27:59

Sounds vile. I'm doing slimming world but haven't come across this - won't bother with it by this description

HappyGoLuckyGirl Fri 24-Jan-14 19:35:33

Advisable!

SW mouse is nice.

Quark, natural yoghurt, sweetener and options any flavour. Whisk together and leave to chill in fridge. Makes a chocolaty yoghurt, mouse thing.

HappyGoLuckyGirl SW mousse is minging! and this cake in a cup sounds rank!

I've been on SW forever and I just eat my syns when I want them or have a HiFi bar/ Alpen light or a Shape 0% yogurt if I don't want to use my syns.

Lol at SW mouse and not mousse wink

Poor wee mice
