I’ve been experimenting with baking with Elderflower and decided to try some Elderflower and Maple Syrup flapjacks. It’s a really simple recipe and we could definitely taste the Elderflower flavour in the finished result.
- 175g oats
- 110g butter
- 40g sugar
- maple syrup
- Belvoir Elderflower Cordial
- Melt the butter over a low heat and add the sugar. Mix them together over the heat.
- Add the oats, and mix well so that they are well covered
- Add maple syrup (amount according to your taste) and mix well again. We used a couple of squeezes from a squeezy bottle, which was plenty
- Add a dash of Belvoir Elderflower cordial (amount according to taste) and mix again. We added a generous dash of undiluted cordial, and the flavour came through very well. I had thought that maybe it wouldn’t, which is why I was quite free with the amount I poured in. I think about a tablespoon would be enough to give the flavour.
- Transfer the mixture to a tin or tray. We used a non stick round tray.
- Bake in a preheated oven 180 C / Gas 4 for 20 minutes
- Enjoy! You can try them straight away but they are best left a while to set if you want to cut them into slices easily.

Flapjacks are one of the simplest and cheapest treats to make and they work well in lunchboxes, or for a snack, or even for a picnic. I hope you like this Elderflower variety!
These are British flapjacks. I have heard that an American flapjack is a type of pancake but this is something different. It’s more like an oat bar or a granola bar, and if you have not tried them you should definitely give them a go!
