Flapjack Serving Ideas:
For sweet toppings use the usual jams, honey and whipped cream or vanilla ice cream. Or try fruit. Berries are especially nice with flapjacks. So are bananas. Quickly fry sliced bananas to caramelize them – using the same frying pan you’ve made the flapjacks in. Butter the warm flapjacks with butter (or peanut butter), top with the fried bananas and drizzle with syrup, maple syrup or honey.
Don’t limit yourself to sweet flapjack toppings, try savoury toppings as well. You can’t go wrong with matches-made-in-heaven such as crispy bacon and maple syrup; or crumbed Roquefort cheese and figs.
If you are feeling adventurous try an eggs Benedict version – fry the flapjacks, then lightly toast them, butter and top with bacon and a poached egg drizzled with a Hollandaise sauce.
