Anglo Saxon Spiced Honey & Oat Cakes

This recipe is based on a recipe found here:

http://cookit.e2bn.org/historycookbook/958-honey-oat-and-spiced-cakes.html 

but I have changed it a little and added some comments about how to prepare it. It isn’t really flapjack – more a soft crumbly cereal bar. It is less sweet and heavy than my usual flapjack recipe, and possibly marginally less likely to induce a heart attack.

INGREDIENTS

  • 250g porridge oats
  • 125g butter
  • 1 dessert apple, peeled, cored and chopped
  • 4 large tablespoons runny honey
  • 1 level teaspoon of ground cinnamon
  1. Melt the butter in a large pan (this will be used to mix all ingredients together), and add the honey to warm it.
  2. Once melted add all the rest of the ingredients and mix really thoroughly. Make sure the oats are mixed in and not dry!
  3. Line a baking tray with greaseproof paper.
  4. Put the mixture onto the tray and gently pat into a rectangular shape with the back  of a wooden spoon.
  5. Bake in oven about 10-12 minutes, turning half way through if not fan-assisted.
  6. When golden, remove from oven and leave to cool on the tray for 10 minutes. This is a crumbly mixture and benefits from setting a little before moving. However, you can mark the cutting lines in it if you like, as in the picture.anglosaxonoatcakes
  7. After 10 minutes, cut into pieces and move to cooling rack to finish cooling.

Enjoy!
