    This basic recipe can be flavoured as you wish, e.g. Chocolate, use Nutella as the sauce, replace 1oz of the flour with cocoa & use milk instead of juice. Lemon: use lemon juice and half a jar of lemon curd. I whip this up while someone else lays the table and leave it to cook in the microwave while we eat the main course. Instant dessert!
