After I posted my tea cosy cover on Thursday I had a re-think and changed the French knots for buttons on the flowers and I love it! So I have made a few more to sell (just to see how they go) including a funky pink one.
But you can't have tea without cake, and .... pauses for dramatic effect .... I have finally made edible flapjacks! The easiest of cakes you may say, but mine were either too crumbly or rock hard, so here is the easiest, most idiot proof recipe!
You need -
100g butter or margarine
75d soft brown sugar
2 tablespoons of golden syrup
200g of porridge oats
a 20cm x 30cm well greased baking tray
Melt the butter in a large pan over a low heat.
Add sugar and syrup and mix well.
Stir in the oats.
At this point you can add dried fruit or chocolate chips - whatever you like!
Spread mixture evenly in the tray with the back of a spoon.
Bake for about 25 minutes at 110C or 90C (fan assisted) until golden brown.
Leave to cool for about 5 minutes then mark into squares and leave to cool in the tray.
I often bake a batch now when I've finished cooking the evening meal and the oven is cooling down.
During the week - barring computer problems - I'll be visiting all the other blogs on Wendy's Handmade Monday, why not take a look yourself?
