  • 3 tbsp fine-cut orange marmalade


  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/gas 4/fan 160C and generously butter a 28 x 18cm shallow baking tin. Melt the butter, sugar and syrup over a medium heat, stirring all the time. Take off the heat and stir in the oats, walnuts and orange zest. The mixture should be quite soft.

  2. Tip the mixture into the baking tin and level it off. Bake for around 30 minutes or until the edges are golden brown but the centre is still a little soft. Remove from the oven and mark into 12 pieces while it is still warm, cutting down halfway through the mixture with a sharp knife. Leave to cool.

  3. Heat the marmalade with 1 tbsp water until it becomes syrupy. Brush this glaze over the flapjack mixture and leave to cool before cutting into 12 pieces. They will keep in an airtight tin for up to a week.

Made these today using a 28 X 18 cm swiss roll tin, which was just the right size for the mixture - there is a typo in the recipe which says 28 X 8. These are the most delicious flapjacks I have ever made. I followed the recipe exactly (using tin as above) and they were perfect. Make sure the flapjacks have cooled completely before trying to get them out of the tin, otherwise they crumble.

What makes the flapjack have a 'chewy' texture? Is it the golden syrup? I find that my flapjacks are always too hard.

Well, if the flapjacks taste even half as good as the mixture, i'll be thrilled! let u know in half an hour!

Needed a variation on this so changed Golden Syrup for Maple Syrup, used Tesco Finest Oats as they were beautiful whole flakes rather the the cheaper oats dust, changed chopped walnuts for Pecan Nuts chopped into chunky pieces, changes 20% of sugar weight for Muscovado Dark, also found the oven temp far to high so halved in fan oven for same time and this was ideal, did not burn, came out beautiful and chewey, did not use Marmalade, didn't need it after all the changes, family are now addicted, yum
