Between all of the booze and late night McDonald’s runs money seems to go quickly when you’re a college student. Real food seems to always be an afterthought, and you’re stuck eating whatever you can scrounge up. There were many times when my budget restricted me to Ramen for weeks. Because everyone at Recipechatter.com knows what it’s like to be a poor college student, we’ve decided to compile some of the tastiest Ramen recipes and mug cake recipes. These recipes will take you from dinner to dessert before your Netflix has time to switch to the next episode. I mean it will take you from dinner to dessert so quickly you won’t have to miss out on any quality studying time.
No judgement on what I’m about to say, but I love Ramen Noodles. I think they are super tasty, and I still eat them from time to time while watching trashy television in my pajamas at 3 p.m. to feel like I’m back at college. So when I saw all of these recipes I was pumped. They are so good and make you feel a little bit better about yourself when you are eating Ramen for the sixth day in a row.

I want you all to learn from my mistakes, and make these adorable, reasonable sized mug cakes instead of the whole cake. If you make a whole cake you will eat it all and you will become so fat your parents won’t recognize you when they come for family day. I mean, that never happened to me or anything, just you know knew a guy who knew a guy…
