Yellow Hare Make and Bake Recipes

Our series of simple yet delicious make-and-bake recipes are all guaranteed to hit the spot whilst taking very little effort at all. The key to all recipes here is simplicity and ease.  On a difficulty-scale of 1 - 10, each of these recipes is a 2.  It assumes that the baker will know fundamentals such as the tools to use, that tins ought to be pre-greased and lined (including those that claim to be non-stick) and that the oven should be turned on before you begin.  Additionally, all ingredients for these recipes ought to be readily available from your local shop, wherever you may be.

Famously fabulous flapjacks

Our famously delicious Flapjacks take less than 10 minutes to prepare although they need an hour in the fridge after cooking to let them harden (don't be tricked into thinking they are crunchy ... they are extremely chewy). CRUCIAL to carefully mark out the portions BEFORE the tray goes cold and then cut them properly AFTER the tray has set. The tray will be too soft to cut into portions when it is hot, and too hard to slice cleanly when it is fully set.
