- Ready In:
- Preheat the oven 180C/350F/Gas 4.
- Prepare a tin (what size or what kind of preparation isn't detailed in the instructions) I used an 8" square baking dish, with foil, but no lubrication - based on previous oily flapjack experiences.
- In a pan, combine the butter, sugar, syrup and orange zest (and/or spices) over a medium heat, stirring until the butter has melted.
- Remove from the heat and stir in the oats and figs.
- Tip into the prepared tin, pressing firmly down.
- Bake for 40 minutes until deep golden and bubbling around the edges. The mixture will still be fairly soft in the centre, but will firm up when cooling.
- Leave in the tin until completely cold. Turn out onto a board and cut into 16 squares.

I work in a local museum, training to be a curator. I enjoy baking at weekends, mainly sweet stuff but the BF and I are trying to put a stop to the expanding waistlines. This means fewer, or smaller batches rather than sugar substitutes or margarine. Butter, cream and sugar all the way (in moderation)! It's not a proper weekend unless I've burned myself, probably getting something in or out of the oven. I learnt to knit with the support of the people in the Learn to Knit thread on the craft forum and am now involved with a fun local group. For laughs, I go to quite a few stand-up comedy nights around town.
