Today I showed Ida how to make toffee in five minutes, and now I will show you.

4 tablespoons sugar
2 tablespoons flour
1 teaspoon cocoa powder
1/2 teaspoon vanilla sugar or a few drops of vanilla essence
2 tablespoons golden syrup
2 tablespoons margarin

Mix everything in a ceramic bowl. Mircrowave for 1-2 minutes. Take out of oven and stir. Microwave for another minute. If you are unsure when it's done, test the mixture by dropping some of it into a glass of cold water. If it becomes stiff and holds its shape, the toffee is ready. Spread the toffee over a baking sheet and tell everyone to grab a spoon. Once it has cooled, scrape off apiece and eat! (Or, of course, if you care more about appearance, you can spoon the hot toffee into bite-size pieces and serve when cool.)

Soak the bowls and spoons in water before cleaning. It helps.
