This is an easy Flapjack recipe that will give you at least 12 bars of flapjack in no time at all. I usually double up the amount of ingredients and use a larger baking tray. It is up to you. It does store quite well in a cake or biscuit tin, that is if it is not consumed as soon as you have finished cooking. It certainly wafts pleasant aromas around the kitchen, that is you like sweet food.
For a 71/2 inch shallow baking tray you will need:
4ounces of butter or margarine. You can use a mixture of both
4 level tablespoons of Golden Syrup or as we often call it in the UK treacle. The pale coloured kind.
3ounces of sugar, granulated or brown sugar works well.
8ounces of rolled oats. I buy the large unbranded packs which are cheaper and less processed on the whole.
1/4level teaspoon of salt, adjust as suits.
The ingredients can be prepared easily in ten to 15 minutes and the cooking time is around 30 minutes. I use a fan assisted oven which is an absolute pain. It can mean baking burns around the edges unless I keep a close eye on it. For me the cooking time is half. You will know best what your oven is capable of.
The text book cooking time is 30 minutes with an oven setting of 335 degrees F or Gas Mark 3
