RECIPE

Serves 4

FLAPJACK BATTER

  • 2 Eggs
  • 200g Flour
  • 60g Castor sugar
  • 1/2 Tsp salt
  • 10g Tsp Baking powder
  • 1 Tsp Vanilla essence
  • 60g Butter (melted)
  • 250ml/1 cup Milk

Flapjack Preparation Method:

  • Separate the egg yolks from the egg whites and place them into bowls.
  • Melt the butter and cool, then add the egg yolks, vanilla essence and milk, and then mix.
  • Whisk the egg whites while adding castor sugar slowly until they double in size and form stiff peaks.
  • Sift the flour, baking powder, and salt together and combine them with the wet ingredients.
  • Once a smooth batter forms, fold in half of the egg white mixture until it is fully incorporated.
  • Add the rest of the egg whites to the batter, folding gently, and set aside.

Flapjack Cooking Method:

  • Using a nonstick frying pan, add a knob of butter or use nonstick spray. Cook on medium-low heat.
  • Using a tablespoon, add the flapjack batter to the pan and cook for 3 minutes on each side.

Pro Chef Tip:

  • When cooking your flapjacks, wait to see a few bubbles forming; this indicates that the batter is halfway done and ready to flip.

Assembly:

  • Assemble your flapjacks any way you choose—you could even paint a cream canvas with fruit and honey dripping over it or stack them to the heavens! Either way, have fun and enjoy!
