Mummy Cathryn's flapjacks a la Longers...

Discussion in 'CycleChat Cafe' started by Aperitif, 21 Apr 2008.

  1. OK yesterday, as my wheel was buckled and I was jangling around, I made some more of Cathryn's Mum's recipe...
    First, find the recipe elsewhere on this forum:smile:

    mix the lot together, tip into a greasproof lined baking tray and pat down firmly. (Flapping Jack in the background keeping guard...)

    Excellence!

    One thing to try - make the mixture using 1/2 as much again (i.e. 300g oats etc). Then spread half on the baking tray. Spread jam over that, then spread the rest of the mixture over that, and bake as normal. This is v. tasty...

    John sorry but that sounds v wrong!
     
  11. Ok your next challenge is to pimp that snack.
    I'd like to see a flapjack which is at least 1mx2m and a foot thick. :biggrin:
     
  12. It was going well until I tried to bung it in the oven Kirstie... :blush:

    This week - Blueberry, pinenut with a 'toss' of salted peanuts. Tried adding self raising instead of plain flour ;) seems to make for a softer 'bite'. That may just be the fluke of timing though. More testing needed!

    and some cycling scones:smile: - as the self raising flour was out and about...

    And a swift batch of Delia's quick and easy wholemeal bread...in honour of Norwich stuffing QPR on Saturday :biggrin: (morning gezza :biggrin: )

    It may sound wrong, but it tastes so right...

  15. That looks good JtM - I can recommend fresh blueberries as adding a je ne sais quoi fruity juxtaposition to the piquancy of of the cocktail nuts, slightly seasoned with sel de mer, nestling alongside the healthy aspect of trimmed pine nuts and best West Indian sugar combined with that Canadian staple, syrup of maple...

    Utter tosh - please ignore. Brain is numb from 'work'.

    The other thing I forgot to do was go for fresh ginger - that's a really dynamic adddition from yello's recipe book
