Marmalade Flapjack is a real baking gem
Marmalade Flapjack is a real gem of a recipe and an easy recipe to bake with children. Use homemade Marmalade to make it even more special.
4 oz/110g soft brown sugar
2 tbsps golden syrup
Zest of 2 oranges
12oz/350g porridge oats
6 oz /175g raisins
Preheat the oven to 180C(160C Fan), 350F/Mark 4. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup slowly in a pan over a gentle heat. Remove from the heat and add the orange zest and marmalade. Stir in the porridge oats and raisins. Put the mixture into a lined tin (approx 10 inch/23 cms square). Press it down so it is level. Bake in the oven for about 25 minutes until golden brown and firm at the edges. Remove from the oven and cut into bars while still warm.
Meryl says : I’ve made this recipe with chopped apricots instead of raisins. I've also tried it with 1 tbsp black treacle and 1 tbsp golden syrup which gives it a slightly richer flavour. Just the thing for a mid morning break. Enjoy!
