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!
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
