British Flapjacks

Inspired by last week’s British classic All Butter Shortbreads I decided to tackle another favourite in the form of chewy, gooey and extremely tasty British Flapjacks!! 😀


Recipe (makes 5-6 pieces) 

  • 55 g unsalted butter 
  • 1 rounded tablespoon golden syrup
  • 80 g dark brown sugar
  • 100 g quick-cooking porridge oats
  • a pinch of salt

Grease and line an oval small pie plate.

Place the butter, golden syrup and sugar in a saucepan over a low heat. Cook, stirring, until melted and combined.

Remove from the heat and add the oats and salt. Stir to blend.

Spoon into the prepared pie plate and smooth the surface. Place in the centre of the oven and bake at 180 degrees C for around 25 minutes, or until the Flapjack has browned.

Once you taken the Flapjack out, you should cut it before it cools completely because it will harden.

Happy British Flapjacks Baking Everyone! 😀
