Flapjacks and Snow!


It's snowing!! But I'm almost too embarrassed to post any pictures because compared to the South East and London it isn't really that much - just a light dusting at the moment, but more is expected tonight!

I came home from work early as I didn't want Lowen to be stranded at nursery so we set about making these flapjacks while we were waiting for Daddy to get home. Fast forward a few hours and we're still waiting for him (he has to get across Dartmoor)!

These flapjacks are from Rachel Allens 'Food for Living' and are really syrupy, just how we like them. They are not great if you're on a diet - they contain 350g of Butter, but then it doesn't snow every day!

350g Butter
3 TBSP Syrup
175g Soft Light Brown Sugar
1 TSP Vanilla Extract
75g Plain Flour
375g Rolled Oats

Step 1: Preheat oven to 180c and line swiss roll tin with baking parchment
Step 2: Melt Butter, Syrup and Sugar in a saucepan
Step 3: Mix in vanilla extract, flour and oats and pour into tin
Step 4; Bake for 2o minutes and cut into squares
p.s Hubby has just walked in the door

Update....its getting worse


  1. I love flapjacks and these look so good!

    We have tons of snow and more to come.


  2. In the states we call pancakes "flapjacks". Hmmm...I wonder where the name for both dishes came from now.

  3. I've never had flapjacks before - only pancakes. The snow looks fun - I am sure you little one was loving it.

  4. Interesting Flapjacks, that's our pancakes. They look delish on a cold snowy day.

  5. Flapjacks are a total favourite of mine. And I keep reading about this book - must get my hands on a copy.
    We've had a mountain of snow today but it seems to have stopped now.
    Lowen is such a cutie!

  6. Lowen is a real cutie! And the flackjacks don't look half bad either hehe!
    I love that last snow shot of the snow gently drifting down.
    I hope hubby got home safely!

  7. I was reading about all the snow in the SE on the interweb. It was 66F here on Sat and Sun, (would you Adam and Eve it?), so ours has all gone now, thank goodness.

    You realise you are confusing our American friends, to them flapjacks are pancakes. :-) These look lovely. I hope your hubby made it home safe and sound.

  8. Yummy, I love flapjacks, will have to buy some more oats in..

  9. We've had loads of snow here and there's more to come apparently!

    The flapjacks look perfect, there one of my favourite things.

  10. A love that pic of Lowen in the snow and more to come I hear from the news!

    Your flapjacks look scrummy Beth )

No Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie

This No-Bake Zingy Lime Crumb Pie is going to be my go to dessert this summer. A zingy lime cream encased in a sweet biscuit crumb - much like a no bake cheesecake...but better! It's seriously yummy and will happily sit in the fridge for a couple of days so there's no need to scoff it all at once if you don't want to 😜. It's quite rich too so the recipe made in a 20cm springform tin will easily feed 8 - 10 people, the perfect size for a family gathering or summer BBQ.

TOP TIPS FOR MAKING NO-BAKE ZINGY LIME CRUMB PIETry using ginger nut biscuits instead of digestives for a more grown up taste.For a 'fancier' dessert, pipe some whipped double cream around the edge of the pie and decorate with slices of lime.I whip the condensed milk, lime juice and double cream with a hand held electric whisk but you can do it by hand if you want to - it will give you a good arm workout!You can make the Zingy Lime Crumb Pie up to 3 days before you need it so it's a great ma…

Honey and Peanut Butter Flapjacks

These flapjacks are now my official weekday grab and go breakfast. I make a big batch on Sunday evening and I'm all set for the week. Oddly I don't really like peanut butter but it works well in this recipe. You can always substitute it for an extra 100g of ordinary butter if you wanted. A handful of raisins makes a nice addition too.
