So I have to say my first poll on Instagram was an absolute failure! LOL You guys all voting for us to bake all 5 cakes and then either invite you round or post to you wasn’t entirely helpful! Ha Ha so in the end I gave Henry the vote and he choose Chocolate Cornflake Cakes.

A really simple and easy recipe, it’s perfect for an older child like Henry to essentially do on his own with little supervision.  Likewise it is also fun to get the little ones involved in whilst you bake.

Chocolate Cornflake Cakes


50g Butter

100g Chocolate

3 tblspoon Syrup

100g Cornflakes



Step 1

Add the butter, chocolate and syrup to a microwaveable bowl.  Measure out the cornflakes into another bowl.  Put the wet ingredients in microwave for 10/20 secs at time, removing and stirring in between.

Step 2

Once fully melted then pour on top of your cornflakes and mix through with a wooden spoon.

Step 3

Now we made milk chocolate and dark chocolate batches and added choc to cornflakes, and cornflakes to choc.  The consensus from Henry is that adding choc to cornflakes is better/easier.

step 5

Step 4

Put the mixture into individual cases and chill in the fridge for at least 30 mins.  If you fancy you can add marshmallows, choc and/or glitter etc. for a little extra sparkle!

We found that as we used larger cases we got six from each batch.  Thanks to the original recipe from BBC Good Food.
