This recipe is for a tradional english cake/dessert/snack. everyone in my family loves this recipe, though its so old i cant remember where it came from. we all love it because its such a sweet, gooey, rich comfort food! its so easy to make, why not try it out? there are variations in this recipe, so you can try out the different optional ingredients, or even a combination of them!
- Put the butter, sugar, and syrup in a saucepan, and stir ir over a medium heat until the butter has melted.
- put the melted mixture into a miXing bowl, and add the porridge oats and any optional ingredients you want to add.
- put the mixture in a papered tin, flattening the mixture with the back of a spoon.
- bake the flapjack in the oven at about 180c for around 30 minutes, or until the flapjack has browned.
- note: if you are using raisons in your recipe, you might like to cook the flapjack for a shorter time, or for a longer time at a lower temperature, because raisins can burn and expand with the heat.
- once you take the flapjack out, you should cut it before it cools completely because it will harden.
- if youre impatient, eat some warm (if you havent already!) but flapjack is just as delicious chilled.
- ***** if youre a chocaholic, i would recommend that when the flapjack has cooled completely, you melt a black of chocolate and pour it over, and wait for it to set. *****.
