Bakewell flapjack

    40 min

    If you like flapjack, and you like almonds/bakewell, then you'll love this! Especially with your favourite jam. Eat as a snack or try it with custard. I used to have this type of thing at school served with custard. Couldn't find a recipe, so made up one. Yum! you'll be surprised. Please leave a comment or rate if you can. Thanks! Happy baking.

    Prep:20min  ›  Cook:20min  ›  Ready in:40min 

    1. Preheat oven to 170 C / Gas 3. Grease a small baking tin about 14x14cm.
    2. Put oats, flour, ground almonds and salt in a mixing bowl and stir till mixed.
    3. Stir in melted butter. Add almond extract and golden syrup and mix. If you find it a bit dry, then add some more melted butter or golden syrup if you want. However if too wet, then add more oats!
    4. Spoon half the mix into prepared tin and press down with back of fork, fingers or back of spoon until in the corners squashed altogether. (May be a bit sticky, not too bad though.) Make sure fully pressed down, otherwise flapjacks will become crumbly.
    5. Spread over jam, not completely to edges as will spread out when cooking.
    6. Spoon over the rest of oat mix on top and press down flat. Sprinkle with almonds if you wish.
    7. Bake for around 15-25 minutes depending on your oven on middle shelf till edges become golden. Do not overcook as will become dry, so keep an eye on it.
    8. If desired, when cool, drizzle the flapjacks with melted white chocolate.
