Ingredients and Method


  • 100g Blackberries, rinsed
  • 50g Raspberries, rinsed
  • 50g Caster Sugar
  • 360g Unsalted Butter
  • 350g Demerara Sugar
  • 550g Porridge Oats
  • 200g Rolled Oats
  • 2 tbsp Water
  • 300ml Golden Syrup
  • 100g Bramley Apple, peeled and grated


  1. Place the blackberries, raspberries and caster sugar in a small saucepan and put over a gentle heat. Allow the berries to soften and simmer until a thick syrup forms. Remove from heat and set aside to cool.
  2. Preheat the oven to 170°C, or Gas Mark 3. Prepare a 24cm square dish by greasing and lining with baking parchment.
  3. Place the butter, demerara sugar, water, and golden syrup in a large heavy based saucepan and heat gently. Allow the butter to melt and the sugar to dissolve.
  4. Remove the butter mixture from the heat and add the porridge oats and rolled oats. Mix thoroughly until well combined.
  5. Spoon half the mixture into the prepared dish. Spread evenly with the back of a spoon and ensure the mixture is level throughout the dish.
  6. Spread the blackberry syrup over the oats and spread evenly. Grate the apple directly over the blackberry syrup. Add the remaining flapjack mixture and distribute evenly.
  7. Bake for approximately 30-40 minutes until the top of the flapjack is a rich, golden colour. Once cooled, remove from the dish and cut into portions.
