Cookery Monday - Charlie's Apple Flapjacks

Today chef Charlie helped mummy to make our 
first ever attempt at Apple Flapjacks

First we cooked 2 cooking apples in about 1oz of butter for 10 minutes. Then we added 5 more oz of butter, 6oz of sugar, 1/2 tsp mixed spice, 1tbsp golden syrup. 

When the butter and sugar melted we poured in the 8oz of oats, 2oz of raisins and 2 tbls of linseeds. (recipe called for sunflower seeds, but we didn't have any so substituted.) 

Gave it a good old stir!

 Then we poured the scrumy smelling, finger licking good mixture into
a 6x12 pan which we'd lined earlier.

Then it was time to let it fill the oven with it's gorgeous aroma for
25 minutes at 160 degrees F

 After 10 minutes cooling time it was ready for cutting
and the much longed for tasting test!

And the verdict??

Thumbs Up!!

To make 12 flapjacks you will need:

2 cooking apples
175g (6oz) butter
175g (6oz) demerara sugar (I used a combination of demerara & light muscavado)
2 tbsp golden syrup
1/2 tsp ground cinnamon (I used mixed spice instead)
50g (2oz) sultanas (we used raisins)
225g (8oz) porridge oats
2 tbls sunflower seeds - optional (we used linseeds)

an 18 x 27 cm (7x11 in) - we used a 7x12

These were the best tasting flapjacks I've ever had!  Thanks Charlie!
