lemon curd flapjack!

Sweets for your sweet!

This weekend why not rustle up these awesome flapjacks for your loved ones, perfect for post (or during!) bike rides and weekend exploring..

We are feeling romantic so have gone with a heart theme,  swoon!

You will need:

  • A large cake tin or brownie tray.
  • 160g light brown sugar
  • 200g butter
  • 4tbsp golden syrup
  • 500g porridge oats
  • 400g lemon curd (homemade or shop-bought)

The magic:

Preheat the oven to 170 Celsius (fan oven) and grease your baking tray.

Melt the sugar, butter and golden syrup together in a pan, over a medium heat. When everything has turned to gooey perfection, stir in the oats and push half of the mixture firmly into the lined tin.

Spread the lemon curd over the oats (this is made easier by warming it slightly first), then cover with the remaining oat mixture and flatten.

Cook for 30mins, until golden brown. Let cool completely, don't try to turn out or cut your flapjack until stone cold or you will be eating it with a spoon! Turn out and cut into suitable sized portions ( big ones are best!!).
