No problem - Nigella to the rescue. Sort of.
Recipe followed and mixture pressed firmly into the baking tray, the flapjacks went into the oven. They were taken out with get aplomb and left to cool.
When it came to the cutting, disaster - my 'pressing firmly' hadn't been firm enough. I'd ended up with crumble topping.
The conclusion was to 'press' some more - so down came two heavy books from the shelf and we waited for a couple more hours before trying to cut them again.
We have taken to eating the little sugary piles with a spoon whilst sipping tea. All very ridiculous and not 'lunch box' friendly in the slightest. The first Domestic Goddess recipe that didn't quite go to plan.
I'm going to try Mum's recipe next time. What's your fail-safe flapjack recipe?
