Traditional Scottish Recipes
- Flapjacks

Flapjacks may not be traditionally Scottish, but they do use one of the basic ingredients of many Scottish recipes - oats.

9oz (275g or 2 US sticks) butter
9 oz (275g or 1 cups) soft brown sugar
Quarter pint golden syrup (Light corn syrup is the nearest equivalent in N. America)
1 lb 2 oz (550g or 3 cups scant) rolled oats

Preheat the oven to 180C/350F/gas mark 4. Melt the butter and add the soft brown sugar and golden syrup. Keep on a low heat until the sugar dissolves - do not boil.

Remove from the heat and add the oats. Place on a baking tray 12 x 8 inches, and roll the mixture to 1 inch thick.

Bake for approximately 15 - 20 minutes. Allow to cool and then cut into squares. Store in an air-tight container.
