My basic flapjack recipe is simple and easy to make. its perfect for an afternoon treat but it’s also great for a cake sale or a gift to a friend.
Its been a few weeks since I’ve posted a recipe due to a swollen foot meaning I cant stand for very long and my CFS increasing both leading me to not bake very much! but I’m back with a recipe that’s quick and easy to make!
Flapjacks were another bake that to start with I just couldn’t get right. They were too hard, too oily etc. I tried many different recipes until I came across this one that makes the softest chewiest flapjack that is just perfect. The combination of the golden syrup and sugar give this a really sweet sugar kick that’s the perfect pick-me-up! Try it and see if it works for you.
Oven – 140c
- 250g butter
- 250g light brown sugar
- 150g golden syrup
- 500g rolled oats
- Melt butter, sugar and golden syrup in a saucepan, stirring until completely melted and starting to bubble.
- Stir in rolled oats and mix thoroughly.
- Pour into lined deep tin. Smooth the top down.
- Cook for 20 mins or until slightly brown.
- Leave to cool for 10 mins then cut into portions.
- Leave to cool completely before removing from tin.
- It should still be soft in the middle when you remove it from the oven – it will harden a bit as it cools
- You don’t want to leave the flapjack at longer than 10 minutes before you cut it into portions otherwise it might get too hard.
- This is just a basic recipe but there are many variations you can make with flapjack – add fruit and nuts for a fruity flapjack or chocolate chips for a chocolate flapjack. I’ll add some more variations of flapjack as I make them but try experimenting yourself!
