The fact that the ingredients in this recipe are measured in ounces will give you a clue to it being a classic recipe from my childhood!


4oz butter (100g)
1oz sugar (25g)
2tbsp golden syrup
8oz rolled oats (200g)
A pinch of salt

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C. Grease a 20cm square tin.
  2. Melt the butter, sugar and golden syrup together in a saucepan, stirring until well combined.
  3. Take the pan off the heat and mix in the rolled oats and a pinch of salt. Stir well until the oats are evenly coated.
  4. Press the mixture into the baking tin.
  5. Bake for 15 minutes until lightly golden.
  6. Leave to cool slightly before cutting into fingers. Leave until it has cooled completely before removing the pieces from the tin.

I also made this recipe for Chocolate orange tart from Jane’s Patisserie for Mother’s Day dinner and it went down a storm, so can highly recommend this recipe.
