This week has been quite chilly and something about the autumn leaves has made me crave flapjacks so that's what I decided to make this week.
It took me a bit of searching but eventually I found a flapjack recipe in my Coffee & Cakes recipe book by Linda Collister.
To Make this recipe you will need:
85g brown sugar
1 tablespoon of golden syrup
1/2 teaspoon of ground ginger
To start off I preheated the oven to 200c and lined a baking tray. (I didn't realise that the recipe said to pre-heat the oven to 180c/ gas mark 4!)
Then I measured out the ingredients.
After that I added the golden syrup.
Once combined I poured it into the lined tin and smoothed it to the edges out using a fork, then put it in the oven and set my timer for fifteen minutes.
After the mixture had been in the oven for five minutes I double checked the recipe and realised that I should've been cooking it at 180c not 200c... so I turned the oven down and hoped for the best.
When the timer buzzed I took the flapjack out of the oven.
Whilst these flapjacks taste ok and look alright they were too thin and a bit crunchier than they should be. When I try to make them again I'll have to use a smaller pan and double check the heating instructions. These should satisfy my flapjack cravings for a bit but they fail miserably when placed against the barometer of my Mum's flapjacks...
