The Queen’s Jubilee – Cornflake Cakes
The third installment has been well worth the wait… It’s such an easy and classic recipe you can get the kids involved. Cornflake Cakes; the real version. A lot of people nowadays tend to just melt a bar of chocolate and let it over some cornflakes; it’s quite sad really. Especially when the original recipe is so easy!
- 2tbsp Butter
- 2tbsp Golden Syrup
- 2tbsp Cocoa Powder
- 12 heaped tbsp Cornflakes
- Melt the margarine, golden syrup and cocoa powder together over a low heat in a pan big enough to take the cornflakes as well.
- When all three have melted into a smooth double-cream consistency liquid, add the cornflakes and mix well so that all the flakes are coated.
- Spoon mixture equally into each cake case and put into the fridge for 1 hour to set.
How easy is that?! You have no excuse not to give it a go. Quick tip though, the Golden Syrup will stick to the spoon so you won’t get the full amount. Although slightly dangerous, so don’t let young kids try this, for a few seconds heat a metal tbsp (tablespoon) over a hob flame then dive it into the Golden Syrup. It will then fall right off!
