Lemon Meringue Flapjacks

Lemon Meringue Flapjack 2I love lemony things and thought a lemon flapjack would be something worth trying out, I decided to add some meringue and also a drizzle of icing, these went down a treat!

My family are not over keen on lemon flavour but Gav is always a willing volunteer and actually really liked them, I didn’t make the flavour too over powering, of course if you’re a total lemon nut you could add more curd and some lemon zest too!

I had some homemade lemon curd amazingly, as I eat the stuff straight from the jar, I’m hardcore! I also made some meringues too but I’m sure shop brought would be grand 🙂

85g butter

45g granulated sugar

1 ½ tbsp. golden syrup

Preheat oven to 190°C 170°C fan GM5

Grease a round 7”/18cm cake/sponge tin a loose bottomed one is handy.

Place the butter, sugar and syrup in a saucepan. Heat gently until melted, stirring to mix as it melts.

Remove from the heat and add in oats and lemon curd and mix well. Gently stir through some of the broken up meringue, as much as you wish,  I saved some to pop on top to decorate too.

Pour/spoon into the prepared tin and smooth over until fairly even. Bake for 15-20 minutes until golden brown.

Leave in the tin but make sure you cut through with a knife to mark the pieces while still warm. Then allow to cool completely in the tin.

Once cool mix the icing sugar and lemon juice together to make a smooth runny icing and drizzle over the top of the flapjack, dot with meringue if you wish. Enjoy ♥
