Zest and juice of 1 lemon

 

200g milk or dark chocolate-  for the topping

 

Method

 

If not using an Aga then pre heat your oven to 180C/gas 4

  • Put the chocolate in a bowl at the back of the Aga to melt
  • In a large pan melt the butter, syrups and zest of lemon
  • Chop the walnuts, prunes and ginger bulbs and add to the melted butter…removing from heat
  • Add the oats and flour and the juice of lemon and stir until all oats are covered and the mixture is combined
  • Pour the flapjack mixture into a half size lined roasting tin or roulade tray and place the grid shelf on the floor of the baking oven (3/4/5 oven Aga) with your tin on top and bake for 20 mins or until golden brown
  • 2 oven Aga, place grid shelf on floor of roasting oven with cold plain shelf on the second set of runners above and bake for about 18 mins
  • Remove from the oven when cooked and allow to cool in the tin for 10-20 minutes before pouring over the melted chocolate (I made squiggles but you can make it a smooth coating)
  • After 10 minutes score the top of the chocolate making it easier to cut when completely cooled.
