This flapjack recipe from The Happy Foodie only needs four ingredients! It’s very sticky, but you can mix it all up and have it finished in no time. You can customise this recipe by adding raisins, dried apricots or chocolate chips for extra flavour and texture.

How is it possible to make anything from just two ingredients? But here you have it, with the Nutella cake recipe from Kidspot. The website has a video tutorial, but we don’t think you’ll need it as this recipe is super simple. And yummy!

Jam tarts – https://www.bakingmad.com/recipe/strawberry-jam-tarts

Baking Mad’s jam tart recipe  is a winner here! So very simple to make. You can easily change them up with different flavours of jam or lemon curd. Take care removing from the oven as the jam gets very hot.
