How to Make Corn Flake Biscuits/Cookies

Author:

Oliversmum is a self-taught cook who likes to try new and healthy recipes. Her preferences include biscuits/cookies, cakes, and puddings.

Corn Flake Biscuits, crunchy on the outside nice and soft on the inside flavored with juicy Sultanas.

My mother gave me this particular recipe many years ago. She always said that she was not a good cook, but we never went hungry. This cornflake biscuit (I believe in some places they may be called cookies) recipe was something that she liked to make. She always used Kellogg's Cornflakes, and they tasted yummy when she made them. My family (bless them) are of the same opinion when I make them, which is quite often, I must admit. You'll find the recipe for how to make these delicious biscuits just below here. I'm sure that they are worth a try, at least once.

The cornflakes will make them crunchy on the outside; the sultanas giving them a softish texture on the inside. A nice combination! :)

Only 6 ingredients required for these Corn Flake Biscuits

Only 6 ingredients required for these Corn Flake Biscuits

Listed below are the ingredients you will need to make these cookies.

I always try to use Kellogg's Cornflakes, as I believe that they are much crunchier after cooking.

I also like to use genuine Australian sultanas, as I find they are much juicer than some of the imported sultanas.

This adds to the contrasting texture of the crunchy outside and the moist, soft centers.

IngredientsQuantity

Butter

8 ounces (227 grms)

Sugar

3/4 Cup

Eggs

2

Self Raising Flour

2 Cups

Sultanas

1 heaped cup. Some times I add a few more sultanas to give more flavour!

Corn Flakes

The quantity of Corn Flakes is hard to judge. It depends on how many biscuits you get from the mixture. I get about 40 with this amount of mixture so try starting with 3 cup fulls!

Instructions

  1. First, coarsely crush the corn flakes in a separate bowl and put them aside for later.
  2. Then using an electric mixer, beat the butter and sugar until the mixture is light and creamy!
  3. Add the eggs, sifted flour, and sultanas a little at a time. Mixing with a wooden spoon until well combined. (Do not add the corn flakes yet.)
  4. Roll a heaped teaspoon of the mixture into a ball about the size of a large walnut.
  5. Roll the ball-sized mixture into the previously crushed flakes, making sure they are well coated.
  6. Repeat this until all the mixture has been used. The above ingredients will supply you with about 40 biscuits.
  7. Place the biscuits/cookies on a flat tray lined with baking paper, leaving room for each biscuit to spread a little.
  8. Cook for 20–30 minutes in a moderate oven on the middle shelf until the cookies are golden brown.
  9. They will be a little soft when you remove them from the oven, but they will harden as they cool.
  10. Place on a wire rack and allow to cool.
  11. Enjoy!

Warning

There is a down-side to this recipe: My family kept eating them! I did actually stop making these for some time.

No seriously, I mean eating them. The whole batch would disappear in what seemed like 5 minutes. Whoosh!! Gone!!

So, please be warned that they will not last.

I have no idea how long they will keep; they just do not last long enough for me to find out.

Questions & Answers

Question: There can I substitute oil for the butter?

Answer: I cannot say for certain that you would get the same texture, but you could try coconut butter/oil. or olive oil spread, which is made by Bertolli, here in Australia. My opinion is that using any type of oil will make the biscuits spread more than they should.

just felt a cooking fit coming on and decided I would like to make something I had not tasted for many, many years. I had only ever bought them at cake shops and had no idea what they were called.

Checked thru all my ccokbooks but no luck so went to ggogle and there you were with the exact recipe. Thank yo so much and will make a batch.I wish I had the Kellogs cornflakes as yes, they would be best but hopefully will find something sismilar in the pantry. Cheers,

Hi Serene Foo. Sorry for the delay in answering your questions. Thank you. We love them too. I have not tried either of your questions, But I believe doubling the ingredients would work, putting half in the fridge without the cornflakes on them not sure, if you try that I would suggest that you let the mixture warm up to room temp at least, before you coat them in cornflakes. Hope that helps. Would like to know how / if it is successful. Thanks again. :) :)

Serene Foo on January 17, 2019:

Hi, i tried your cornflakes cookies and it is indeed yummy. My family finished them within a day!! Can I ask if I want to make 60 cookies do I use the existing ingridents and multiply by 1.8 times? Alternatively if I double up the mixture can I keep the balance mixture in the fridge and bake the next day? Thanks

peachy from Home Sweet Home on December 04, 2014:

maggs224 Hi. They are rather nice.

Yes I guess that they may not help when your are trying to loose a little weight.

They are a little tempting,but maybe down the tract you might like to try them.

Thank you for your lovely comment. It is always great to hear from you.:):)

maggs224 from Sunny Spain on March 16, 2012:

It sounds lovely I had better wait until we have all lost the weight that we are trying to lose as they do sound awfully hard to resist and we are not that good at resisting yummy biscuits :D

oliversmum (author) from australia on March 14, 2012:

the girls Hi. I,ve not had that said about me before. :)

No need to be sorry,I was just going by what my family do,but over a long period of time I have learned to make a double batch and that sort of solves the problem.

Hope you like them when you get time to make these corn flake biscuits.

The secret is out I think.

Thank you so much for your great comment and for voting it up.:):)

Theresa Ventu from Los Angeles, California on March 12, 2012:

You are an answered wish Oliversmum! Sorry to say I will not heed your warning. I have tried this biscuit somewhere and now I can do it at home with your easy-to-follow secret recipe! Voted up :-)

oliversmum (author) from australia on January 08, 2012:

BRIAN SLATER Hi.

They are really nice.

It is an old recipe, my mother and grandmother used to make them,so it's been around awhile in Australia.

Kelloggs Corn Flakes finely crushed are also great to coat chicken filets or fish for a change.

Well that may be possible,but they could get crushed the way they throw things around in the mail.:)

Thank you so much for your lovely comment and your up vote, they are very much appreciated

Brian Slater from England on January 07, 2012:

Wow these really yummy, never heard of them before, but it was great to see Kellog's Flakes being used differently. Voted up-awesome

ps. you could n't post me some could after your next bake off. lol

Thank you for your comment. Merry Christmas. :):)

xixi12. Hi. Thank you.

This Cornflake Biscuit Recipe is a great one for getting the Children involved, and is pretty easy.

I will go through my Recipes and see if there is one with Oats or custard, if so will let you know.

Thanks again for your lovely comment. :) :)

Wonderful invention I must say. Do you have any more recipes I can make at home with simple custard or oat. This is really nice and can be used to keep the children busy

oliversmum (author) from australia on July 12, 2010:

Doodlebird. Hi. I really enjoyed reading your work.

They do taste great, and it would be wonderful to get help from your children as well as being a fun thing to do with them.

My Granddaughter (7 Y.O) helps me sometimes and we have a wonderful time making these biscuits plus other recipes.

I have never used Corn Flakes to coat chicken, but will try it now, the taste would be a lot nicer than bread crumbs. Thank you for the idea.

I keep them in my cupboard for that very reason, there is just so much that you can use them in.

Thank you so much for your lovely comment. :) :)

Doodlebird on July 11, 2010:

Hi - thanks for stoppy by my hubs and for the words of encouragement!

These sound yummy - I'll have to try them with the kids sometime. I like to used crushed corn flakes for breading homemade chicken nuggets and put honey in the egg for a little sweetness. Corn flakes are a very useful ingredient.

Blessings

Kangaroo_Jase. Hi. You are more than welcome.

Yes I believe that this Corn Flake Biscuit Recipe has been around for awhile.

They do taste great, so maybe one day you will get time to make them again. I hope so.

Thanks a lot for your help in letting our American Friends know where they can purchase some of our exports. It is very much appreciated. :) :)

Kangaroo_Jase from Melbourne, Australia on June 30, 2010:

Ahhh like Earnest above mentioned, thankyou for reminding me of something I used to enjoy immensly in my childhood, I have forgotten about these biscuits for about 30 years.

To our American friends reading this, I beleive there are Australian goods importers in Texas, California and Ohio and they possibly may import Corn Flakes, if you wish to try the recipe.

oliversmum (author) from australia on June 05, 2010:

Peggy W. Hi. I have not baked Biscuits made with Wheaties, It sounds like it is a nice crispy one as well.

I looked through all your hubs and could not find it.

This Corn Flake Recipe has a great taste. Adults and Children seem to like them.

If you get around to making this Recipe I would love to know what you think.

I would also like to try your Recipe with Wheaties.

Thank you so very much for your lovely comment, it was very much appreciated. :) :)

Peggy Woods from Houston, Texas on June 05, 2010:

I have a family cookie recipe that also calls for using corn flakes and another that calls for using Wheaties. They are good and crunchy. Your recipe sounds good. Thanks for sharing.

oliversmum (author) from australia on May 25, 2010:

I hope your luck changes and when it does you enjoy making and eating these biscuits, they do have a great taste.

agvulpes. Hi. Nice to see you here again.

With a little help from a friend, these corn flake biscuits could be in the oven in the blink of an eye, with a few extra sultana's in the mix.

Yes I always get a big smile and hug when they get a share of these biscuits, then the next day come back for more.

Now I have to find a better hiding place.

Thank you for your great comment. I did get the hint. :) :) :)

Peter from Australia on April 30, 2010:

oliversmum , it is 5 weeks now and my mouth is still watering at the thought of your corn flakes biscuits. They must be nearly due for cooking again. I'm sure your family will appreciate it very much if you cook some more of those delicious corn flake biscuits, they may taste nicer with a few more sultanas thrown into the mixture :-)

oliversmum (author) from australia on March 29, 2010:

Agvulpes. Hi. No worries. Maybe now that you have found the recipe, you could help this person make these Corn flake biscuits. They really are delicious and can make your mouth water. My family do love them. I guess it is almost time to make them again. Thank you for your lovely comment, it is very much appreciated. :) :)

Peter from Australia on March 29, 2010:

oliversmum, sorry I'm late getting to this Hub but I've been very busy trying to talk a certain person into making some Corn Flake biscuits.

Oh! what a coincidence we are on a hub about Corn Flake biscuits and my mouth has started watering.

Your family is very lucky indeed to have you to cook these biscuits for them!. Great Hub :-)

earnestshub from Melbourne Australia on March 29, 2010:

My mom made these as well oliversmum. I used to love these as a kid, so was lucky my wife made them for me most of my adult life!

The recipe was pretty much the same, and they are delicious!

Corn flake biscuits... yum!
