Vought XF5U - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Woohoo I think you're right John !!
Chance Vought Flying Flapjack
I had "a buck" riding on this ...... I said "yes" but I was just guessing !!!!!! :clapping:
I always called it the ''Flying Pancake".
When I was a child my mother made flapjack.
You had a good Mum !!!!
Those are not Flapjack's as I remember them, they are pancakes.
If I remember correctly the Flapjacks my Mother made were made mainly of porridge oats and Llyles Golden Syrup.

The Flying Flapjack
This is my recipe for Flapjack, inherited from my English mother. It doesn't have golden syrup in it, but you could try using 3 oz of Lyles with 3 oz brown sugar and seeing how it turns out. I'm sure it would work quite well.
10 -12 pieces (change servings and units)
Change to: pieces US Metric
1 2 3 4 5 clear stars

6 ounces butter
8 ounces rolled oats (quick cooking)
6 ounces brown sugar
1 pinch salt
1Melt butter in saucepan over very gentle heat.Mix in the sugar, oats and salt.Stir well and turn mixture into greased swiss roll tin and press lightly together.
2Smooth top surface with the back of a metal spoon and bake at 190C for 30-35 mins in centre of oven.
3When golden brown remove from oven and allow to cool for a few minutes before cutting into square slices.
Cool completely before serving.
Thanks John .... thats some plane isn't it ?
wonder if that might have been the flying saucer people were seeing ??
I'll stick to the ones that look like pancakes I think David !!
Annie, you are really missing out. The flapjacks that David had as a kid are the ones we still have in Britain......and they are gorgeous. Though one can get them with raisans, nuts, chocolate chips etc, the best are the plain ones, especially the home made ones.
OD'd on pancakes the other day. No need to eat any for a month or two!
