Autumn food cravings

It's that time of the year again when hot tea and cakes feel heavenly. England has fabulous tea-rooms but those in sought-after historic towns like Chipping Campden (in the picture) can be quite expensive.

It's that time of the year again...

For those of you who sometimes feel an urgent craving for chocolate cake and can't be bothered to be posh and go to the nearest tea-room, here's a chocolate-cake-in-5-minutes recipe:


4 Tablespoons cake flour
4 Tablespoons sugar
2 Tablespoons cocoa
1 Egg
3 Tablespoons milk
3 Tablespoons oil
1 Mug


Mix flour, sugar and cocoa:

Spoon in one egg:

Pour in milk and oil, and mix well:

Put in microwave for 3 minutes on maximum power (1000watt):

Wait until it stops rising and sets in the mug:

Tip contents out of mug onto saucer and enjoy!
