In the mean time fir your flapjack batter, Add all your dry ingredients to one bowl and all your wet ingredients into another. Whisk together all the wet ingredients and the fold dry ingredients into the wet ingredients. Add a splash of milk (batter is supposed to be thick).

Tip of the day

Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
