This was Mum's recipe and provides one of the easiest, sickly sweet cakes you could hope to come across.

6oz Butter
6 tblespoons Syrup
9 tblespoons Sugar
½ lb cooking chocolate

Slowly heat the 6oz of butter, 6 tablespoons syrup, 9 tablespoons sugar and ¼ pound of chocolate in a very large saucepan. When mixed, add crushed cornflakes and continue to mix well. All the cornflakes should have some of the mixture but the overall effect should be one of a sticky mixture rather than a wet one. Turn out into baking trays and press evenly. Cut into shapes. (You can use square, oblong or round trays - the latter give segment-shaped pieces.) Leave for 1 hour to cool..

  1. I would never have guessed that there was chocolate in your cornflake crunch!
