My favourite Cranks flapjack recipe

Cranks flapjack recipe

This is adapted from the recipe in my ancient copy of the The Cranks Recipe Book . It makes a lovely moist and crumbly flapjack that actually tastes better after a few days, so is good for making at the start of the week to use in lunchboxes. Saying that, I made this quantity on Sunday, and they have all gone already!

Cranks Flapjack Recipe


300g margarine or butter
150g brown sugar
6 dessertspoons golden syrup
450g oats


Preheat oven to gas mark 5, 190C. Melt the margarine or butter, sugar and syrup on a very low heat, stirring frequently. Mix in the oats and stir thoroughly. Press down into a large-ish tin and bake for 25-30 minutes until golden. Allow to cool for 10 minutes then cut into the size you like. Don’t leave it to cool completely though or it is really difficult to cut.

Have a nice slice with a hot cup of tea, and Bob’s your uncle 🙂
