(I still prefer my mum's ancestral recipe
3tbsp golden syrup
300g porridge oats
Melt fat, sugar & syrup, stir in oats.
Greased 7x7" tin, 20min gas 4
You can add cherries / raisins / nuts / seeds etc as you like - I never bother measuring, just sling in a handful or two.)
I made these with dd this evening, though we had to substitute a few ingredients...my porridge oats were out of date , so we used museli, and chucked in a few sachets of Oats-So-Simple for good measure. I had no golden syrup either, but found a bottle of maple syrup (not the expensive stuff, just Lyle's syrup flavoured with maple), and used brown sugar instead of white...it was lurking at the back of the same cupboard we found the syrup.
They are soooo gooood! We ate half of them all warm and gooey out of the oven, and DH is currently eating a big wodge of it with mature cheddar
This is my new favourite recipe, and so easy to make, my dd (nearly 10) wants to make them all by herself next time, thankyou again!
