Vanilla Mug Cake

Some more motivation… I guess this is why I have put up this blog in first place! Hehe…


I am a queen of cravings. I keep craving for sweet. I know it’s just not good, but sometimes, I just can’t hold myself. Only God knows when I will put up all that weight that I had so painstakingly lost! I put on weight faster than I lose – duh! – and that explains all the frustration! Everyday, I tell myself that I am going to start at least some form of exercise, but my whole schedule is so topsy turvy that I am just not able to accommodate anything at the moment. But InShaAllah, looking forward to a few movements on the coming days, and I guess, I would be able to play around with my schedules a bit to accomodate in 20 minutes at least in a day! Till then, let us enjoy this delicious mug cake that is perfect for non-chocolate lovers… if you love chocolate, just drizzle up the way I did! πŸ™‚
