    Spicy Flap jack stuff - Thai style Kanom

    I have just devoured a packet of what can be described as Spicy English flapjack.

    It had coconut and oats, nuts and honey in it. However I am unsure of how they added the spice.

    ANybody got a recipe for this.

    It's not the American flapjacks the americans know. It';s like sweet British flapjack.

    Would they just add chillie powder or what?

    Just make a basic pancake/flapjack mix and add the other things you want in it, but if you are adding a lot of other dry ingredients, without the same amount of wet, reduce the floor content or increase the milk or add another egg.

    Mrs q i have just done a quick mixture for English flapjack,to see if i can still remember how to do it and it came out ok so here you go.
    You will need equal quantities of honey,golden syrup,treacle or maple flavored golden syrup depending on your taste and butter not margarine as it would taste awfull.
    Melt say the syrup and butter in a sauce pan till runny then add rolled oats (as in porridge oats).
    mix this well so that all the oats are covered in the above then and press it into a well greased flat tin.
    pop it into a hot oven (middle shelf) for about 25 mins.
    while still warm score it before allowing to cool.
    Ok so this is the basic recipe, if you want to add spices,or fresh chillies cook them out in just the melted butter on a very low heat then add the syrup.
    carry on as above.
    If adding fruit nuts etc,allow a little more butter or syrup and mix in with the oats.
    sorry not to give correct measurements but i never use scales e.t.c
    Will try to find you a recipe
    Good munching.

    Nope it ain't them

    It's spicy spicy. Like a chilly spice.

    I will try and make some this weekend.

    A few rat shit chillies mashed in liquid butter then strained should do it.

    ^I thought of that AO, but I think it would (as would the other hot spices) taste terrible with honey and nuts and coconut.
