A year of fewer questionable outfit choices, I finally found my blogging groove in 2012, and here you can find some favourite pieces, band interviews as they first appeared and a lot of hats too...

What Olivia Cooked; Mary Berry’s Flapjacks

IMG_2950
After the finale of the best baking programme on television (or best programme full stop), it seemed the best way to curb my Mary Berry and Paul ‘I-could-swim-in-your-eyes’ Hollywood withdrawal symptoms was to crack on with testing out some of Queen Berry’s recipes. I opted for one of the more simpler sweet options; and was pleasantly surprised by how outstandingly easy a damn good flapjack is-something I’ve always believed to be ludicrously complicated, but really takes under an hour- what a delight!

You will need:
-125g of butter, plus a little extra for greasing
-90g golden syrup
-90g light Muscovado sugar
-250g rolled oats
-Cake or roasting tin to pop it all in (roughly around 20x30cm)

1. Combine the butter, sugar and maple syrup into a saucepan until all the ingredients have melted and mixed.

2. Stir in the oats (look it’s a bit like a real flapjack!)

4. Pop into your pre-greased tin and pat it flat (technical term) and pop in your oven (at 180C) for 30 minutes. I left it longer as I was worried it was still too gooey, but once you take it out it does set! (probably obvious…) I also drizzled a little dark chocolate over the top to make it a little more interesting! You could also try sweets or dried fruit!

5. Leave to cool until cutting and removing to photograph/eat. Enjoy!
