A BEACH COTTAGE BLOG flapjack recipe

Well hello there and here I am with a recipe for easy Flapjacks or Flapjack slice, omg, yum – now there is one thing that is very obvious in Beach Cottage Land, and that is we all seem to love a good afternoon tea recipe…don’t pretend you don’t ladies, I have the stats here to prove it…

I mean I post a recipe for a green smoothie and you are like yeah thanks Sarah….stick up something that will, actually stick to your thighs, make you happy and make you want to move to England so that you can drink more tea so that you can make more baked goods and people come out of the web woodwork…and apart from this side of it, I know in this old cottage baked goods last approximately 0.26 seconds…so anyway, what I’m trying to say is, I must be doing something right making and posting recipes for afternoon tea.

That’s not to say that I won’t be blogging smoothies, or healthy veggie recipes or soups any longer…I’m right into those at the moment too…

So this is a recipe for Flapjacks, these hark back to the Old Country, though, and I have no idea why, I had always assumed that they were Scottish, perhaps because of the oats…but apparently they are considered to be British fare…

The very best thing about these, apart from the fact that they taste like heaven in a Flapjack recipe, is that they can be made with four ingredients, that they can be made in one bowl and only require mixing with a wooden spoon, that the ingredients you are pretty much going to have in your pantry anyway, and lastly they are just so darn easy…in fact anyone could make these…

I’ve written on here before that I lurve oats and have done for a long time, I always try out new ones wherever I go, they are always in my cupboard and they never fall out of favour, though I must say that in actual fact the capacity of their use in this old cottage is normally a bit less arvo tea, a bit more breakfast…anyway….so I used here Woolworth’s Select oats, have to say very nice – good quality, good price, good bang for your oat buck and we all know that’s what I look for – I value good value.

The amount I give here is a pretty healthy dose of flapjack, but if you have a family as I do who like themselves a bit of home baking I’m thinking that doubling this up will be very much worth your while…plus they keep well so too easy really…

Flapjack Recipe

2 cup porridge oats (I used Woolworth’s Select)

2/3 cup butter roughly cubed

3 tbsp golden syrup (I used Woolworth’s Select)

1/3 cup soft brown sugar


1. pop all ingredients into a saucepan and melt on low/medium and stir

2. spoon into a lined baking tray and smooth out to edges

3. bake 200C 20 to 25 mins – do not let this get too brown, when you take it out it should be golden (though I like it a little browner which means a bit of the sticky consistency is lost)… traditionally it should be very gooey and soft…

Beach Cottage Recipe Notes*  sub golden syrup with corn syrup, maple syrup or honey if you can’t get hold of it   *this is best sitting in the fridge for a few hours or overnight to set to make it easier to cut though I have to say mine never lasts long enough for that really.

That’s it from me and my Flapjack Recipe, have a lovely weekend
