You know those days when you just want cake for breakfast? I’ve been having a few of those days. I just moved into my dorm (for the last time!) and consequently I no longer have a kitchen. Correction. I have a kitchen, minus basically everything that makes a kitchen a kitchen. Say hello:

We have a microwave aaand…Image

a mini fridge!! For four people. The ton of cabinet space really doesn’t seem necessary considering how effectively useless the facilities are. (Oh btw the stove top in the top picture was brought by one of my suite mates, not supplied by the university. Though really how hard would that be.)

Thank goodness for no-cook meals! Like wedding cake batter!

Okay, it’s not really wedding cake batter. It’s better! It’s a better (because gluten free and vegan) batter! It’s got chia seeds to fill you up and healthy fats for staying power. Plus, in combination these make a rich, creamy, decadently cake batter-like breakfast or snack.
