I made this for an early light Tea. I had some Golden Raisins so I threw in a handfull. FANTASTIC! Everything I love about the flavor of Oats comes out in these dilicious Oat Cakes. I served 'sides'of Home made Jams and Jellies but most were eaten with just butter. THANX

yummy yummy in my tummy! Absolutely perfect. A hint to others though - let the flapjacks go completely cold! I couldn't wait to eat one so tried taking them out of the pan but they were still crumbly when warm. No biggy I just ate the crumbles and left the pan. They are sooooo good and very very easy - hubby had one and immediately said 'when are you making these again?' High praise indeed
