Cake for one!

A really easy cake for one, despite being sacrilege if microwaved, although it can be baked in the oven.

Ingredients:
3 tbsp flour either white or 1 tbsp Gluten free plain flour or ground almonds
1/4 tsp baking powder
Pinch of salt
1 tbsp Demerara or golden granulated sugar
1 tablespoon water
2 tsp water
2 tsp of either oil, melted margarine or applesauce
1/4 tsp pure vanilla extract

Choose a variation of your choice:

Cinnamon and pecan:
A pinch of cinnamon (choose to suit your taste)
2 pecan halves
1 heaped tsp Demerara or golden granulated sugar
1/2 tsp of either oil, melted margarine, mashed banana or applesauce the latter two for a fat-free version if desired
tiny pinch salt

Coffee and Walnut:
1/2 tsp of dissolved expresso or strong coffee solution
2 walnut halves
1 heaped tsp Demerara or golden granulated sugar
1/2 tsp of either oil, melted margarine, mashed banana or applesauce/pureed apple the latter two for a fat-free version if desired
tiny pinch salt

Chocolate:
1/4 tsp cocoa
3 crushed hazelnuts
1 heaped tsp Demerara or golden granulated sugar
1/2 tsp of either oil, melted margarine, mashed banana or applesauce the latter two for a fat-free version if desired
tiny pinch salt

Cherry and Macadamia
1-2 chopped cherries
2 crushed Macadamias
1 heaped tsp Demerara or golden granulated sugar
1/2 tsp of either oil, melted margarine, mashed banana or applesauce the latter two for a fat-free version if desired
tiny pinch salt

Method:
Preheat to 330 F.
Combine batter dry ingredients and mix well.
Add wet and mix until just mixed. In a tiny bowl, combine all
filling ingredients.
Fill a greased muffin tin or a ramekin or mug, if using the microwave 1/2 way with the batter.
Sprinkle on two-thirds of the filling, then spoon the remaining batter on top.
Finally, sprinkle on the rest of the filling.

Cook 12-13 minutes in the oven, or approximately 1 minute in a microwave.

N.B. Microwave times may vary depending on the wattage power of the microwave.

Fabulously healthy (ad-lib) Flapjack!

Ingredients and method

You will need:
18″x23″ rectangular tray tin or similar swiss roll tin greased and lined with greaseproof paper
large bowl
wooden spoon
oven
small bowl if microwaving the sugars and butter/oil mixture or saucepan if not

100 grams/ 4 ounces of sugar of your choice: Muscovado Sugar (for chewy texture) or golden granulated sugar (crunchy texture), soft brown sugar ( for a slightly chewy texture)
100 grams/ 4 ounces of Butter or 100 fluid ounces of sunflower oil
2 Large tablespoons or 4 large dessert spoons of golden syrup
Place these into a saucepan heat until combined stirring with a wooden spoon or in a bowl and microwave for one minute stir, remove spoon, then another 30 seconds remove, stir, remove spoon until combined. However I find heating in a saucepan the best way but it works either way and you will still obtain good results.
Place 100 grams of oats (large or small) into a bowl more if too wet a mixture add more oats however add any optional additions first, mix well.
Turn out into lined baking tray bake for 25-30 minutes 180 (170 fan ovens) or gas mark 4.

Optional extra additions to make it more enjoyable

50 grams or 2 ounces of Dried fruits (if adding) such as raisins, chopped dates, cherries, cranberries berries, as preferred one or more

Or
50 grams of nuts preferred such as pecan walnut, macademia, hazelnut, Brazil roughly chopped but not too small

Or be inventive…

Variations…

Your favourite fruit and nuts

For a scrumptious but naughty treat triple chocolate chunks or once cooled melted chocolate on top

Instead of golden syrup use maple syrup and 50 grams of pecan nuts roughly chopped and you have pecan pie flapjacks


Or
Raspberries and white chocolate

Or
Macademias, Cherries or cranberries and white or dark chocolate

Or just be naughty and have triple chocolate chunks in them or once cooled pour melted chocolate over the top cut once cooled and set.

Enjoy! Bon Appetite!

I will aim to add photographs of my latest version if not eaten yet!
