Foodie Fridays: Cake-in-a-mug

Image
Dear fellow cake-loving foodies, I have found the solution to all our midnight cake cravings. Cake-in-a-mug, which is probably the best thing since sliced bread! Thank God for Pinterest. As promised in my last Foodie Fridays here is an easy-to-make healthy meal for the busy 20-something on the go (A healthy diet includes carbohydrates and some cake every now and then won’t kill you so stop judging me :-D) All you need for this 10-minute craving fix is a microwave and basic cake ingredients. I adapted the recipe from this site and I substituted a few things to suit me. So here goes:
1. Vanilla cake-in-a-mug
Requirements ·4 tablespoons flour ·2 tablespoons sugar ·1 egg, whisked ·2 tablespoons of milk  ·3 tablespoons melted butter/margarine ·1 teaspoon vanilla essence ·A large mug (or two)
Method 1.Place all of the dry ingredients in the mug and mix with a fork. 2.Add the whisked egg and combine well. The mixture will be pretty sticky at this point. 3.Stir in the milk and oil until well combined. …

What it feels like to study for Medical-school exams

1. Constant guilt whenever you take time away from studying so that you can do other things. ..like shower


2. No matter how much you get done,  you still haven't gotten anything done


3. Reading, forgetting and realizing you have to read again


4. Rainbow notebooks and textbooks. ..enough said


5. When your non-med school friends complain about not having seen you in a while


6. When people don't understand why your study patterns have gone up 10 notches when you're usually constantly studying in their opinion


7. When you over-hear your classmates discussing a topic that's not even vaguely familiar to you 


8. Study-mode is kinda like zombie-mode...only more intense



9. Cleaning and being orderly stops being a major priority. My room becomes a constant tornado of books and papers.


10. In fact,  your personal appearance stops being a priority. ..unless you have orals...Then it's a major priority.
