btw I now use baking paper, rather than greaseproof to line the tin because I was fed up with picking little bits of greaseproof off the flapjack.

someone else asked me that once - no, in fact, it's a combination of my favourite colour and favourite animal (which is actually a tortoise, but turtle goes better)

you should try the reusable baking sheet as sold in Lakeland. Fantastic! I swear by it. My traybakes etc slide off really easily.

MarsLady, do you say "Reusable baking sheet...bugger!" Or do you mean something else? [confused if a little minxy emoticon]

MarsLady Sun 08-May-05 23:32:25

These are devine.
Cadbury's recipe for Cornflake Flapjacks. Start to finish 25 mins.

4oz margerine
1tbsp golden syrup
4oz caster sugar
2oz oats
2oz SR flour
3oz crushed cornflakes

1 Grease a 7" x 7" square tin and preheat oven to 190c (170c if fan oven)

2 Melt marg and syrup together gently.

3 Mix in a bowl the sugar, oats, flour and cornflakes.

4 Pour the melted marg and syrup onto dry ingredients and mix thoroughly.

5 Pack mixture down evenly into tin and bake for 15minutes - NOT A SECOND LONGER!

6 Cut into fingers while still warm and leave to cool in tin.

7 Remove from tin and eat, then bake another batch before anyone realizes!!!

Can I just hijack here - MarsLady, my traybakes seem to come out better without any sort of liner. I've been using greaseproof paper, but the bottom of the traybake doesn't seem to crisp up right, so I end up with a tray of very tasty crumbly bits. Which isn't a bad thing if I want to just eat it all myself.

At any rate, does the reusable baking liner thing warm up the bottom and edges more, so they're crispy?
