Class 139 in the Domestic Cookery Section of the Show this year is Flapjacks, 6 and to be made to the show recipe by a child 11 years and under. Below is the recipe which has been tried and tested by the Ladies of Millfield Golf Club and their guests; apparently it is to ‘die for’!!
Preheat the oven to 150C/300F/Gas 2 and line a 20cm/8in square baking tin with baking paper.
Melt the butter in a medium pan over a low heat. Dip a brush in the butter and brush the baking tin with a little bit of it. Add the golden syrup and sugar to the butter and heat gently. Once the sugar is dissolved and the butter is melted, remove the pan from the heat and stir in the porridge oats, lemon zest and ginger.
Pack the mixture into the baking tin and squash down. Bake in the oven for 40 minutes.
Once cooked, remove from the oven, leave to cool for 15 minutes, then turn out on to a chopping board and cut into squares.
