Hi - Ive just finished off some shop-bought flapjack and noticed the "secret killer ingredient" as you say appears to be condensed milk. Ive just searched the internet and have found this. Ive not tried it yet but will be as soon as I have the ingredients in the house. I'll let you know the outcome! Ingredients: Porridge Oats (just the plain cheap type, not large ones), 500g
Golden Syrup (in a green and gold tin), 4 serving spoons
Unsweetended condensed milk, half a tin
Demerera sugar, 340g You'll also need an oven, a saucepan, some baking parchment and a large baking tin or a couple of small ones. Method: Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celcius, you may need to search the web to find a conversion to gas mark (1-9) which many ovens are in.
2. Line the baking tin with baking parchment, this doesn't have to be neat.
Melt the butter in a large saucepan over a medium heat.
Add the sugar and syrup. Keep heating and stirring until all is melted and mixed. Don't rush by turning the heat up, the sugar will start to caramelise etc. If it starts to boil take it off the heat!
5. Add the condensed milk and mix.
Gradually add the oats, folding them in. All the oats should be coated, and the mixture quite dense, but still sticky. Don't add so many oats that the mixture becomes dry.
Pour the mixture into the tins and spread about so that it lines the tin to a depth of 2-3cm. Fill as many tins as necessary! Don't squash the mixture in, just spread it evenly.
Bake in the oven for ~15mins. If using top and middle shelves swap half way through so they cook evenly.
You should take them out when they just start to go brown round the edges, don't leave longer than this. If they're still squidgy in the middle that's fine, they set on cooking.
