There's nothing I love more than baking but sometimes there's just not enough time in the day so I decided to do a super quick, slightly cheating, cornflake tart. Yes, you read that right. Old school cornflake tart, just like you used to have in school! I had completely forgotten about this until my boyfriend mentioned it to me yesterday that he hadn't had one in forever. I was in my local supermarket before I went over to his house and I spotted a pastry case and since I had about an hour to spare I thought, why not make a super quick cornflake tart!? So I grabbed the pastry case, jam, cornflakes and golden syrup which came in super cheap at less than £4 for everything. Of course, the price will vary depending on what kind of ingredients you get and also the amount of ingredients will completely depend on personal taste also. I personally like a small amount of jam on the base and a lot of syrup and cornflakes but that's my personal preference! You can totally adapt this super quick recipe to suit you and your taste. You'll need your ingredients, a knife, a spoon and also a pan. So, here's how you do it...
- I placed the sweet pastry case on a clean surface.
- Evenly spread jam all over the bottom of the pastry case with a knife to cover it all.
- Place a pan over low heat and pour in your desired amount of golden syrup.
- Wait until the golden syrup is starting to become thinner and then add the cornflakes.
- Stir with a spoon for a couple of minutes to ensure that all of the cornflakes are covered in syrup.
- Once all covered, evenly spread the syrup covered cornflakes to the top of the tart.
And there you have it, A super quick and cheap old school cornflake tart.
Enjoy, I know I certainly did!
