Whether you're a hardworking student or a hard-up work-hunting graduate, you probably don't have the time or the money to whip up a flan. Who does? Save both time and money by cooking things in mugs. In the microwave. In under five minutes. You're so welcome.
CHOCOLATE CAKE (IN A MUG)
Put 3 tablespoons of milk, 3 tablespoons of flour, 3 tablespoons of instant hot chocolate powder, 3 tablespoons of sugar and an egg in a mug.
Mix it with a fork (if you're fancy, try a whisk).
Put in the microwave for two minutes.
MAC AND CHEESE (IN A MUG)
Mug proportions: 1/3 cup of pasta, 1/2 cup of water, 1/4 cup of milk, bloody loads of shredded cheddar.
Mix it up and microwave on high for two minutes.
Repeat x 2 (ok so that's slightly over five minutes, but come on. It's still wizardry)
Believe you're a wizard.
POACHED EGG (IN A MUG)
Regardez the following:
Have a rollicking great time.
(NB: you don't have to incorporate muffins or toast. You can stick a mug of beans in the microwave five minutes before adding the poached mug egg and you've got yourself an english breakfast, albeit a depressing one)
MUFFIN (IN A MUG)
Put 1 egg, 1/4 cup of oats, 1 tsp of sugar and a sprinkling of blueberries (or any fruit of your choice) in a mug.
Mix it up.
Put it in the microwave for two minutes. Watch it in case it overflows and transforms your microwave into a giant muffin.
Have a mouthparty.
MEATLOAF IN A MUG
Put 2 tablespoons milk, 1 tablespoon ketchup, 2 tablespoons quick-cooking oats and 1 teaspoon onion soup mix in a mug.
Add 1/4 pound lean ground beef and pat it all down.
Microwave for three minutes (until the meat isn't pink)
Congratulate yourself on not being vegetarian.
