Cooking Masterclass 3: Cornflake Cakes

4th September 2009 4 Comments


Being a domestic goddess is hard. So how about some cakes which will not only keep the kids occupied, but they will also eat? These cakes are very very sweet and sticky, but hey, I never pretended to be Delia Smith or Annabel Karmel and we did make them at Brownies in about 1982! This makes lots, so you might want to halve the recipe if you aren’t feeling incredibly hungry for gooey, sweet sticky yummyness.

You need;
200 grams Dairy Milk Chocolate (or any other type of choc you fancy)
100g butter
6 tablespoons of golden syrup
150 grams of Cornflakes
Packet of cake cases

Then its simple;
Melt the butter, chocolate, and syrup all together in a saucepan over a low heat. Take off heat and put into a bowl.Mix together with the cornflakes. This will keep the kids occupied for hours! Get them to spoon individual portions into the cake cases. Put them in the fridge. EAT, feeling a bit smug as they do have a healthy element to them, after all, they contain cereal.
