Re: Best Simple Flapjack

Got a craving for Flapjacks and knew they were pretty simple to make, but couldn't remember what quantities I needed.

Thanks for the recipe, they're delicious!

Re: Best Simple Flapjack

Here in US flapjacks must not be the same thing as what you describe.  Flapjacks here are small round disks made from batter and cooked on a hot skillet.  We also call them pancakes or hotcakes, I've never heard of "pikelets/drop scones" but sounds good.

Re: Best Simple Flapjack

I'm with Joy and Eddie. Small pancakes/pikelets made with batter thicker than crepes, not as thick or airy as waffles.

Sure they taste great, though. Thanks for sharing.

Re: Best Simple Flapjack

I tried to make flapjacks once, but they would not stick together - I had excellent granola instead.
I think it might have been the oats. I have had the problem with other recipes containing oats: the English or American recipe worked there, but not here in Germany. The oats are maybe processed differently?
And then of course there are different kinds of oats and maybe I have not used the right ones.
Can you point me to right ones? We have big sturdy ones and small soft ones. Which would you use?

Re: Best Simple Flapjack

Hi Susanne wave

Not familiar with flapjacks with oats (as stated earlier).

Think they'd be too heavy and stodgey for my liking (not that "usual" flapjacks feature in my menus often, to be honest).

Sorry I can't help but would think the small soft ones you refer to would be more appropriate. Would resemble "porridge cakes" to me. But that's "just me". Am not a "breakfast person".

Re: Best Simple Flapjack

More of the golden syrup for making them chewy, more of the wet ingredients to hold them together is needed??  I use rolled oats for baking and making oatmeal, but steel cut oats are the better choice for oatmeal, aren't they?

Re: Best Simple Flapjack

Am confused ( not difficult, BTW).

Now sounding like ANZAC biscuits with addition of golden syrup.

We are definitely speaking of different *but* beautifully different (for me) foods.

Re: Best Simple Flapjack

Hi Maree,

Here is a link for what we Brits are thinking of when we talk about flapjacks

http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/flapjacks

Though I've heard them called ceral bars or museli bars too.

By the way I love Anzac biscuits too  smile
