Lemon, Nut, and Prune Flapjack

Lemon, Nut, and Prune Flapjack - фото рецепта
One of the ingredients of this dessert is, of course, oatmeal, which is highly esteemed by the English. In England, tea is consumed up to seven times a day, and the English tradition of "five o'clock" is known worldwide. Various sweets are served with tea: soft waffles with fresh berries, various puddings, and pastries. One of the traditional pastries served with tea is flapjack. This pastry (or bar) is popular in Great Britain, Ireland, as well as in America, Canada, and Australia. It is traditionally made with maple syrup, but it can also be made with honey, which gives it a soft flavor. Flapjacks are often glazed with chocolate and decorated with caramelized nuts or fresh berries when served. This oat pastry will be a wonderful option for breakfast or a snack, very delicious, nutritious, and filling.
Oatmeal
2 cups
Sugar
1/2 cup
Butter
1 cup
Honey
3/4 cup
Flour
3/4 cup
Lemon
1/2 pc (zest and juice, as desired)
Walnuts
1 cup
Prunes
1 cup
To prepare the lemon, nut, and prune flapjack, mix butter, honey, and sugar in a separate bowl. Heat everything until foamy.
In another bowl, mix oatmeal, flour, chopped prunes, and blended nuts.
Instead of prunes and nuts, you can add raisins, dried apricots, or cranberries - adjust to your taste.
Add the liquid ingredients to the dry ingredients, mix well, then add grated lemon zest and juice. Mix again.
Spread the dough into a pan (9x9 inches), smooth it out, and bake for 25-30 minutes at 170 degrees Fahrenheit.
It's better to line the pan with parchment paper (I didn't have any), which will make it easier to remove the baked pastry.
Once the lemon, nut, and prune flapjack is ready, remove it from the pan, let it cool, and cut it into pieces of any shape. I cut mine into triangles.
Store the flapjack in the refrigerator. Place parchment paper between the pieces to prevent them from sticking together.
