For Christmas I was lovingly bought a Mary Berry Cakes and Bakes recipe book by my friend after a new obsession started from The Great British Bake Off and until now, shockingly I had not made anything from it! This weekend that had to change and it did! I decided to make Flapjacks, a simple recipe but one of my favourites when I was a child and here is the recipe;


  • 225g of Butter
  • 225g of Brown Sugar
  • 75g of Golden Syrup
  • 275g of Porridge Oats
Flapjacks Warm From the Oven
Flapjacks Warm From the Oven


  1. Preheat the oven to 160C and line your tin with baking paper
  2. Me;t the butter in a large pan along with the sugar and syrup stir continuously until melted
  3. once melted add the oats and stir thoroughly
  4. Then pour the mixture into your tin
  5. Press the mixture flat with a palette knife until even
  6. Put into the preheated oven and bake for 35 minutes until a pale golden brown
  7. Leave to cool for 10 minutes
  8. Then in the tin cut the flapjack into your desired pieces and leave to cool
  9. Once completely cool remove from the tin and serve

I had not had flapjack in so long and they were just as good as I remember. My main task now is not to make and eat a batch every week!

What are your favourite long lost treats?

  1. We don’t have flapjacks here in New Zealand, but these look quite similar to what we call ANZAC biscuits. It’s always interesting seeing similar recipes in other parts of the world. I guess when theres are ingredients that lend themselves to go together, many different cuisines might cotton onto the fact.

    1. One of my close friends is Canadian and it really does make you realise the small differences in food! You should try this recipe, there is nothing better, well maybe!!
