wrt the sugar, its a matter of taste. The amount I listed in the recipe was already a reduced amount and it's still too sweet for me (and I do have a sweet tooth). No sugar at all was probably a little too drastic though.
Soupdragon, I love you! Ihave been trying to make perfect flapjacks for years. Tried your recipe yesterday and the result is delicious! Condensed milk definitely the secret star ingredient. I used athird of the amount of sugar you had and it was perfect. Thank you
Soupdragon, I DON'T love you. I have put on at least a stone since I started making your flapjacks, at least once a week, a month ago!! Obviously, I don't have to eat them all, but I can't help myself. They are AMAZING. The DCs adore them. Interested to hear your take on the sugar, though, and will reduce the amount next time. Haven't dared until now in case it ruined them!
I made some just last night, in fact, and had one for ninrses elevenses this morning.
