Butter. Sugar. Oats. Syrup. So simple, yet so good. Flapjacks have always been quite legendary in my family. We tend to know this as ‘Dad’s Flapjacks’ recipe, though I’m not entirely sure why. It could be because Dad likes them just like this or maybe it’s his recipe. Best if it remains a mystery.

• Melt butter, sugar and syrup in a large saucepan over a low heat.
• Stir in the oats thoroughly.
• Press into a large tin lined with baking paper.
• Bake for 10-15 minutes at 160°C.
• Cool in the tin, before turning out and cutting into slices.

• All sorts can be added to the mixture as you wish. Particularly good is Cornflakes.

• If I use cheap (value) oats I up the quantity to 14oz.

• Do not overcook or they will be dry and hard. Stop cooking as soon as the edges are golden brown, the centre will firm up once it is taken out of the oven.

Add a few more tablespoons of syrup and they will come out even more delicious and chewy .... but then I have a very sweet tooth!
