You know that Rolling Stones song You Can’t Always Get What You Want? Well, when it comes to me and my boyfriend and our most favorite apartment that we went to see, then YES. We totally can get what we want.
Let me walk you through the apartment without actually walking (because I am so pooped from my move I cannot even fathom getting up for more than a few seconds).
Two rooms, laundry (score!), a bathroom and, best of all and what you are all thinking about, a large kitchen with a lot of storage space. This calls for a celebration!
And what better than a mug cake?
When you have been moving everything you own into a large truck, (no, we did not hire movers…sigh) you definitely don’t want to be spending much effort into making something that takes more than 5 minutes.
Also, after exerting all that energy today, I need something with protein in it. This was exactly what I needed.
So whether it’s a moving celebration, a pre- or post-workout snack, or just a treat for yourself, I definitely recommend making this mug cake. You CAN get what you want, and in less than 5 minutes.
