(I think I'm sharing this because I watched Julie & Julia last night, go watch it if you have not already!)
If you feel like spoiling someone (or yourself), try to make the yummy flap jacks! Perfect for a lazy Saturday, after sleeping a little later than normal...
Flap Jacks, stacked with bacon, fresh rocket (I prefer the wild rocket - can get it at Pick 'n Pay) and lastly drizzled with Maple Syrup.
Make sure you make enough, because you will definitely want seconds!!
My Mom's recipe for flap jacks
1 cup self raising flour
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon oil
pinch of salt
Break the eggs into a cup, add water until it's at 3/4 cup mark. Whisk together.
Add the dry ingredients, but don't whisk too much, it will make it sticky if you do.
Put a little margarine in a hot pan, spoon small amounts of batter in the pan (normally about 3 or 4 flap jacks will fit in the pan in one go).
Once bubbles appear on the top, you need to flip it over.
