English Flapjack

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by kitka9

This is my recipe for Flapjack, inherited from my English mother. It doesn't have golden syrup in it, but you could try using 3 oz of Lyles with 3 oz brown sugar and seeing how it turns out. I'm sure it would work quite well.

This recipe is brilliant. I've made them both ways, either all brown sugar or 3oz Brown sugar and 3oz GS. I have found that cooking them for 45 minutes at 150C or 300F makes them stick together more. Could be the pan I use, but 300F x 45 minutes works for me!
