Recipe Science

Cooks Know How: This is known as the melting method of preparation because the fat and sugars are melted before combining with the other ingredients.  The idea is only to melt the fat and not to boil it.  The oats are used to create the bulk of the biscuit and to give good traditional texture.  Because of the high percentage of sugar and syrup this biscuit keeps well and becomes moist and chewy,  You will see lovely deep golden caramelisation of sugars on the surface of the flapjack.
