Cute Kids, Clocks and Flapjacks

This week I'm going to share my recipe for flapjacks.  These flapjacks always turn out really well thanks to the secret ingredient - a spoonful of jam!  This is the basic recipe.  You can add fruit or change the cinnamon for a different spice to make the flapjacks how you like them.  I like to add grated apple for an extra fruity kick.

250g  butter (or margarine)
250g brown sugar
175g honey
1 dessert spoon jam or marmalade (any flavour)
1 teaspoon cinnamon (or other spice)
425g porridge oats

  1. Line and grease a 20 x 28cm baking tin and preheat the oven to 180 degrees C.
  2. Place the butter, sugar, honey, cinnamon and jam in a large heavy-based saucepan and cook over a moderate heat, stirring until the butter has melted.
  3. Remove from the heat and stir in the oats until evenly coated.
  4. Turn the mixture into the prepared tin and level the surface.
  5. Bake at 180 degrees C for 25-30 minutes.
  6. Leave in the tin until almost cold, thern turn out onto a board a cut into 16 pieces
 The flapjacks will keep in an airtight container for up to a week (but mine are usually gone in a couple of days!!!).
