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 quiet 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! :)

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.

Ingredients
Quantity
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!

Cook Time

Prep time: 25 min
Cook time: 25 min
Ready in: 50 min
Yields: Approximately 40 Depending on size of biscuit.

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.

        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.:):)

        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.:):)

        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

        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. :) :)

        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

        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. :) :)

        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.

        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.
