My Mum thinks this is the best one of it’s kind in the world. She may well be right. Chocolate Sludge as it is commonly known in our house is most commonly made from a recipe book that Tessa had when she was in Year 8 at ‘Manual’ or cooking lessons. This particular recipe is a new one for us, made in the microwave – oooo aaaahh – and it has a caramelish sauce because it has golden syrup in it. Try it and see what you think. We approve.
1 cup Self-raising flour, 3/4 cup sugar, 2 tblsp cocoa, 1/2 tsp salt
In a casserole or small dish mix sifted flour, cocoa, salt and sugar.
Melt 2 Tblsp butter and mix with 1/2 cup milk, 1 tsp vanilla and stir this into the dry ingredients.
Topping: 3/4 cup brown sugar, 2 Tblsp golden syrup, 1 and 1/4 cups hot water. Pour the topping over the batter. Cover with waxed paper and cook on high for 8 minutes in the microwave (it took longer in mine).
