No bread in the house. Lunch time. No-one wanting to go out to the bakery. Hungry family. What to do?
5 minute microwave damper
2 cups self raising flour
1 cup water
dash of apple cider vinegar*
Mix everything together in a microwave-proof bowl (don't overmix). Microwave on high for 4 minutes, turn out onto microwave turntable, cook for another 30-60 seconds (times depend on your microwave oven - mine is pretty old).
Slice, slather in butter and jam (or something a little more nutritious, but we were after quick today) and eat while still warm.
Ok - so it's not pretty, but it's fast and filling, and everyone liked it.
* The vinegar has quite a strong smell before cooking, but you can't really smell or taste it at all when done.
