Today I had a yen to do some cooking. So it was a case of see what’s in the old store cupboard. Well not much I’m afraid as I have not been grocery shopping this week. Well I did have porridge oats, golden syrup, sugar, butter and some rather sad looking bananas, “so flapjacks it is” I thought.
225g (8oz) butter
225g (8oz) soft brown sugar
2 tbsp golden syrup
350g (12oz) Rolled Oats.
I also added 2 bananas
1 25cm (10“) square cake tin
Preheat oven to 150oc Gas mark2 or 300oF
Put butter sugar and syrup into saucepan and heat slowly until butter has melted and stir ingredients together
|Syrup and butter just add sugar to this and heat|
|Mix together until butter melts|
Add the oats and in my case I also added two mushed up bananas. Mix in carefully.
Once the mixture is smooth place into tin. I discovered I had lent my square tin to someone so had to use round tins but no matter square or round the flapjacks taste the same.You may find you have to press the surface down to get a smooth top.
|Place oats mixture into baking tin and smooth top surface flat|
Place in oven and cook for about 35-40 mins check after 20 mins to ensure even cooking.
|Cut into segments|
Leave to cool for between 5 and 10 mins then cut into squares or as in this case segments. Use a sharp knife. Leave to completely cool before storing
|Added extra icing drizzle|
I added a little extra to my flapjacks using a little icing sugar and water to make a drizzle icing. You could also melt chocolate and drizzle over the finished flapjacks.
Then serve or store.
