We love to bake in our house. It’s also a good way to entertain Rosie for a little while!
One of our favourite recipes is Banana flapjack. It’s based on the recipe from the Goodfood magazine ‘101 cakes & bakes’ (a really excellent little book for £4.99 – every recipe I’ve tried from it has been great!)
How to make …
Line a baking tray with baking paper. I always leave extra paper coming out over the edge of the tray at both ends so I can easily lift the flapjack straight out to cool.
Melt 140g of butter, 100g muscovado sugar, 2 tbsp golden syrup (works without this too)
Then take off the heat, add one tsp ground cinnamon, 1/2 tsp baking powder, 2 mushed up ripe bananas and a handful of raisins. Then finally add 350g porridge oats.
I usually add a few extras including: pumpkin seeds, chopped dates, sesame seeds, chopped nuts … I’m sure chocolate drops would be yummy too!
Bake in oven at approx 160c (fan oven) until you start to see the edges go a light brown and the raisins start bulge.
Remove flapjack from baking tray and gently press a sharp knive in to the flapjack to mark slices as required. Then leave to cool.
If you find any other delicious flapjack recipes please share with me!
Happy baking! X
