Apple and Cinnamon Flapjacks

I told you, I am ill and went to sleep at like 9pm last night, so today is your lucky day. You get two posts and it is only 8:17am.The first thing I baked in my new pad was flapjacks. Not any old boring flapjacks, but deliciously cinnamony, and moist (eurgh) with apple flapjacks!
Ah yes let me just tell you quickly, bare with me with the photos. Some times I go all out, and use the old mini SLR, and on such occasions I will have a plethora of pictures. But most of the time I just use my trusty iPhone to take a picture of the final outcome. Like so….
