Before the GBBO masterclass started today I decided to make some flapjacks, and the recipe happens to come from none other than the queen of home baking herself the one and only Mary Berry. These flapjacks are so easy to make, I thought it was going to be rather more complex! So if you're looking for an easy recipe to try than look no further this.
250g rolled oats
125g of butter
90g golden syrup
90g Muscovado sugar
A few squares of dark chocolate
1. Lightly butter the roasting tin or cake tin.
2. Combine the butter, syrup, and sugar in a saucepan and heat gently until the ingredients have melted and dissolved. Stir in the oats and mix well.
3. Spoon into the prepared tin and smooth the surface with a palette knife. Bake in a preheated oven at 180C (160C fan, Gas 4) for about 30 minutes.
4. Leave to cool in the tin for about 5 minutes, then drizzle the dark chocolate on top of the flapjack. Leave to cool completely, then cut and remove from tin.
And there you have it, I told you it was easy! Have you tried this recipe before if so what did you make of it? Next time I think I'll experiment with the flavour, I might add something like raisins or cinnamon.
