Flapjack Friday| Cherry Bakewell Flapjacks Yummy!

ImageSorry for the poor picture today, I almost forgot a picture, So I snapped one quickly before these were gone!

The flapjack today is cherry bakewell. I decided to do this without jam as they are lovely without, but you can add it for some extra oomph. I have to say i will make these again and next time i shall remember to buy ground almonds (doh!) if you have these definitely add them as i forgot to buy them but they still taste great!


200g Porridge Oats

150g Unsalted Butter

60g Caster Sugar

40g Light Brown Sugar

60g Self Rasing Flour

200g Glace Cherries

1 1/2 Tablespoons Golden Syrup

2 Teaspoons Almond Essence

50g Ground Almonds (optional)

(Flaked Almonds to top)

Preheat oven to 180c. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup together. Meanwhile, mix the dry ingredients. Take the wet mix off the heat and add 2 teaspoons almond essence then add to dry ingredients and mix well. Spoon out onto a baking tray lined with baking paper and top with flaked almonds.

Bake in the over for 15-20 mins (till the edges are golden) Mark out the slices immediately after cooking, and when they have cooled a little, lever them out of the tray and onto a cooling rack….then enjoy on there own or warm with some ice cream/custard! 🙂
