52 Week Mini Art Card/Tag Challenge

Flapjacks and Cards

Today I thought I'd better think about making a card for my Hubby, who has his  birthday next week. It started off well, but it evolved into a less personal card than I want to give him, so it's back to the drawing board for me. This is the card that I decided wasn't right.

The builders were here before 8:30 this morning, so as the cake tin is empty, thought I'd better make something quick. After checking the ingredients in the pantry, I went for flapjacks. This recipe rarely disappoints...

115g Butter
70g Brown Sugar
5 tablespoons Syrup
180g Porridge Oats

Grease a 20.5 cm square tin & Preheat oven to 150 C / 300 F

Place butter sugar and syrup in a medium-large saucepan and heat till the ingredients have melted. Stir in the oats.  Once the oats are coated, tip the mix into the prepared tin, flatening down the surface with the back of a spoon.

Bake for approx 20 minutes till the edges are brown and slightly crunchy.  At this stage I score the flapjack into portions then leave to cool.  Once fully cooled remove from the tin. These should keep for several days in an airtight container.  I can't actually tell you how long as they don't hang around for very long in our house!

Enjoy the rest of your Monday xxx
