After years of trying and countless disasters I have finally succeeded in...
Dillon, Mollie and Joules love flapjacks and I have tried out various recipes over the years with varying results. I have produced rock hard break your teeth flapjacks (thinking of you swampy), trays full of crumbly crumbs flapjacks and much mess in between but nothing that resembled a proper flapjack.
Last week I was semi successful except I used to much Golden Syrup and overcooked them. The middle ones tasted good, gooey and toffeeish but not like flapjacks. The outside ones were rock hard and stuck to the tin. I was too embarrassed to take a picture of the baking tray before I threw it in the bin. Yep you heard me right, the mixture was stuck solid and the tray was beyond rescue.
Today I bought a new tray and decided to have one last attempt. The recipe was given to me by my friend Sally and it was a recipe her Mum frequently used.
Dillon is so going to love me when he gets home.
