Recipe: Apple Flapjack

A very simple recipe, but a yummy one nonetheless. There is certainly one thing I have to say about flapjack though- YOU MUST USE BUTTER! Without butter it won't be nearly as good, honestly. In this recipe i have used apples from my friend Ralph's garden, cheers!

I baked them for something called a "naturalisation". I had actually no idea what it was but i realised eventually that it meant my friend from Oklahoma was doing the ceremony that finalises him being 'A British Citizen'. Like, he's allready done the test, it was the final ceremony where you signed a bunch of papers and sang the national anthem and things. I think it's hilarious that people who have done the citizenship test probably know more about Britain, than the people born and raised here! I mean, I don't know the national anthem, do you?

Anyway, so i thought i'd make some "Union Jack Flapjacks" and a big heart shaped flapjack. Corny looking, corny sounding, but it's good fun, and it was for good friends and everyone really enjoyed them! Absolutely delicious.

Apple Flapjacks (makes 18 servings) 16p per serving!

250 g butter
250 g caster sugar
175 g golden syrup
450 g oats
½ tsp ground ginger
225g peeled diced apple

1. Line two heart shaped tins with greaseproof paper and preheat oven to 350°F/180°C.
2. Combine butter, sugar and golden syrup in a pan, stirring to melt for about 10 minutes, or until the sugar has dissolved.
3. Remove from heat and add the apples and ginger and oats.
4. Transfer mixture into the tins and spread out evenly. Bake for 30 minutes.
5. Allow to cool. Remove the flapjacks from the tins. Keep whole, or cut each heart into 10 slices.
