Marmalade Flapjack with Chocolate

Marmalade flapjack with chocolate topping.

This recipe is fantastic if you are a fan of flapjack and chocolate orange.


  • 200g raisins (optional)
  • 225g unsalted butter
  • 125g soft brown sugar
  • 150g marmalade
  • Finely grated zest of one orange
  • 2tbsp golden syrup
  • 400g rolled oats
  • 50g chocolate (milk or dark)
  1. Preheat the oven to 180c/Gas Mark 4
  2. If adding raisins – cover the raisins with boiling water, leave for 10 mins to soften and swell, then drain
  3. Melt the butter in a large saucepan, add the brown sugar, marmalade, orange zest (leave some aside) and golden syrup, and bring just to the boil. Remove from the heat and stir in the oats and drained raisins(optional)
  4. Line a 25cm square tin or similar with foil, spoon in the mixture and pack it down evenly, right into the corners
  5. Bake in the oven for about 25 mins, until lightly coloured at the edges. Do not cook for too long or the flapjacks will turn rock hard when cold; bake them too little and they will crumble
  6. Remove from the oven and leave until warm before cutting into 16 squares
  7. Melt chocolate in a bowl and add the remaining orange zest
  8. Spoon the chocolate over the flapjack and allow to cool
