Flapjacks (in 200 metre circles known as 'sprintjacks') - best eaten on the bank whilst reflecting on how tough the days racing was. Very nice with a cup of tea.

Prep and cook time : 1 to 2 hours
Serves: 8

110g (4oz) unsalted butter
50g (2oz) caster sugar
110g (4oz) golden syrup
225g (8oz) rolled oats
2 tsp ground ginger

Melt the butter, sugar and syrup together. Stir in the rolled oats and press into a shallow 20cm (8inch) square, lightly oiled baking tin.

Bake for 18-20 minutes at 190°C/ 375°F/gas mark 5 until golden brown, the mixture will still be quite soft.

Cool for 15 minutes in the tin and cut into squares or rectangles, lift onto a wire rack to cool completely.
