- Serves: 24 persons
- ¾cup/200 grams unsalted butter
- 6tablespoons golden syrup (or corn syrup)
- 2cups/330 grams porridge oats
- 1pinch salt
- 4pieces stem ginger (roughly chopped)
- 4tablespoons stem ginger syrup
- Optional: dried fruits
Step 1Gather the ingredients.
Step 2Butter a 23 x 33-centimeter / 9 x 13-inch baking tin. Line out the bottom with baking parchment.
Step 3Preheat the oven to 180 C/350 F/Gas 4
Step 4Place the golden syrup and the butter into a saucepan and heat very gently. The slower the better as you don't want to burn the syrup. Stir them together really well.
Step 5Put the oats into a large baking bowl, add the salt, and pour over the butter and syrup mixture. Stir this mixture really well, making sure the oats are well covered.
Step 6Add the chopped stem ginger, the syrup, and the dried fruit, if using, and stir once again, this time to make sure the ginger is evenly distributed.
Step 7Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and spread using a spatula to make sure the surface is even.
Step 8Bake in the preheated oven for 25 minutes or until golden brown. Remove from the oven while the flapjack is still slightly soft.
Step 9Place the tin on a wire cooling rack and cut the flapjack into squares and leave in the tin until completely cold.
