A most classic recipe for flapjacks made with butter, sugar, golden syrup and oats. Sometimes you simply shouldn't mess with the best. I use a mixture of jumbo and regular porridge oats to add a little texture but either on their own, or any combination of the two, will work just fine.
  • 100g unsalted butter, cubed, plus extra for greasing
  • 65g sugar
  • 5 tbsp golden syrup
  • 200g porridge oats
  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C/160 C fan. Grease an 18cm square baking tin and line with baking parchment.
  2. In a medium saucepan, melt together the butter, sugar and golden syrup until smooth. Stir in the oats until well coated, then spread into your prepared tin, smoothing flat with a spatula.
  3. Bake 25 - 30 minutes until golden at the edges and set on top. Allow to cool completely then slice.
  4. Will keep in an airtight container for several days.
