Ingredients 1¼ cups rolled oats
1 cup almonds, ground fine
1 cup plain flour
½ cup brown sugar
½ tsp baking soda
½ tsp salt
Zest of 1 orange
1 cup home made jam
160 g butter
Combine all the ingredients except the butter and the jam.
Cut the butter into pieces and cook over a medium heat, stirring. The milk solids will be clearly visible and will eventually go to the bottom of the boiling butter. Keep cooking until they turn a deep brown colour, but do not let them burn.
you can see the "blobs" of milk solids on the bottom of the boiling butter
Take off the heat immediately and pour it into the dry ingredients and mix. You will then get a lovely aroma of orange!
In a 20 cm square pan, put some baking paper, and press about two thirds of the mixture into this.
Add the jam on top.
Crumble the rest of the dough over this.
Bake in a 180°/160° fan forced oven for about 30 minutes or until it is just browning.
