RECIPE: Sticky Flapjack

Hi!
Last week I decided to try another new recipe, so I cracked out my baking book looking for some inspiration and came across a flapjack recipe. Now many of the things I bake Josh doesn't eat, he's an extremely picky eater so doesn't like a lot of stuff and he's not really one for sweet stuff but flapjack he does like so I thought it was about time I made something he could enjoy too.
Now this isn't the most glamourous of things I've ever made, it's not a cute cupcake or a soft cookie with a surprise centre but it tastes pretty good and it's one of the quickest things I've ever made too.

I used brown sugar for my flapjack which gave it a dark colour and a deeper, more toffeeish flavour than usual. You can use white sugar though which I'm going to try next time I make it. Also for the oats, plain porridge oats will do fine (it's better to buy the one's just in a box not individual sachets) I picked plain Quaker Oats up from Poundland!

Flapjack recipe

Ingredients

150g Butter
175g Golden Syrup
175g of sugar (brown or white)
325g Porridge Oats

Method

1. Preheat the oven to 150c of Gas Mark 2. If your using a metal baking tin line it with baking paper if your using a silicone tin like me it'll be fine to just line it with some butter
2. Melt the butter in a pan then add the golden syrup and sugar and heat them gently. Once the sugar has dissolved and the butter is melted stir in the porridge oats.
3. Pack the mixture into the baking tin and squash down and bake for around 30-40 minutes. I prefer soft flapjack but if your prefer it crunchier perhaps use slightly smaller measurements so the mixture spreads thinner and goes crispier
4. Once baked, leave to cool then cut it up into individual portions. I made plain flapjacks but you can add fruit or chocolate chips to the mixture or drizzle chocolate over the top if you want to. 

And that's all there is to it! Super simple and super delicious!
