Marmalade Flapjack is a real baking gem

Marmalade Flapjack 
Marmalade Flapjack is a real gem of a recipe.  I got it from a friend in the Lake District and of course she uses homemade marmalade in her recipe just like Grandma. It’s an easy recipe to bake with children too! 

8oz/225g butter
4 oz/110g soft brown sugar
2 tbsps golden syrup
5oz/150g marmalade
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 morning coffee treat. Enjoy!
