This is a quick and easy chocolate fix for one person (or two if they’re really friendly).

3 tbs milk
2 tbs sugar
2 tbs butter
3–4 tbs flour
1–2 tbs starch (ETA: by this I meant potato flour, but you can use regular flour instead.)
1 tsp baking powder
1–2 tbs cocoa

ceramic/microwave-proof bowl
small cup to melt the butter in
bowl to mix ingredients in
microwave oven

Melt the butter in a microwave oven. Mix the sugar and milk in a ceramic bowl. Combine the dry ingredients in a bowl. Combine all ingredients and mix well. Heat in a microwave oven for about 40 seconds or until the top looks nice and ‘melty’. Since it’s egg-free it doesn’t matter if it’s not completely done, I think it tastes better that way! In its melty stage it’s easiest to eat straight from the bowl.

Pros: Easy, quick, delicious, chocolate-y. Ingredients are cheap and easily available.
Cons: Not the healthiest thing ever. May get stuck in your teeth and the roof of your mouth.

I may try this! But what's starch as opposed to flour? Cornflour?

I haven't seen that here. Can you replace it with more flour?

Probably cornflour (which is made from wheat, not maize) or arrowroot would work better.

Hi there!

My first thought was cornflour. I use that quite a lot as it's a good way of preventing low-blood-sugar attacks: a tsp or two in a drink. :-)

I don't have much white bread (it's usually wholemeal pita) but I did have some lovely fresh baguette this weekend and an English muffin. I find I'm OK if I have decent protein for breakfast. As for the cornflour, it releases slowly over hours; I read a tip in a health book a couple of months ago. I only get the attacks late morning / around lunchtime. I'm fine after that. If I think lunch will be late, I mix the cornflour into a glass of water.
