Ginger Flapjack

This is yet another version of my popular flapjack recipe. This time I decided to use ginger to give a totally different flavour but it really works well and cuts through the sweetness that traditionally flapjack has.


I have tried lots of different versions of flapjack and some just fell apart and ended up on fruit crumbles and others were rock hard and nearly broke my teeth!!! This recipe is made with condensed milk and holds together perfectly and it is a nice soft flapjack.

To start making the flapjack pre-heat the oven to 170 degrees centigrade (150 degrees fan) or gas mark 3 then line either a 10.5 x 8 inch (27cm x 21cm) oblong tin or 9” x 9” (23cm x 23cm) square tin with baking parchment.




In a medium sized pan melt the butter, light brown sugar, condensed milk, chopped stem ginger and golden syrup on a very low heat until the sugar has melted.



Leave to cool slightly before you add it to the oats.


Weigh the porridge oats and ground ginger into a large bowl and mix to combine.


Then add the cooled melted butter mixture into the oats and mix until fully combined.



Put the oat mixture into the tin, flatten then bake for 20 minutes until the edges go slightly brown. The middle will still be very pale but it will set as it cools so don’t be tempted to cook any longer.



Leave to set in the tin then cut into oblongs/ squares.

Sarah’s extra slice……

Do not bake for more than 20 minutes.


Adding the zest of a lemon really works well in this recipe with the ginger.
