Crunchy Cornflake Cake

I am a big collector of recipe cutouts. Wherever I go, I see if I can take in a few magazines which have some interesting recipes that I can cut and paste it into my “recipe scrap book” and then refer to it whenever I am in a mood to cook something new. I am sure many of us have that habit of doing this, apart from the umpteen number of recipe books we collect! I have already taken a full section of my cupboard which is almost 80% full. I have a few cookbooks that I had ordered from Amazon and Book Depository on its way, which I am not aware what the sizes would be, but then I am sure once they are in, I will have to rummage around for a brand new spot for my future cookbooks and scraps, or shift everything to a brand new place – both which at the moment, does not look very promising!


Today’s recipe is again a dessert – or rather, a snack item, I should say. One recipe that I had got from my scrap collection. It had a rather strange name. I guess it’s referred to as a cake because it sets in a loaf pan, but no baking is involved whatsoever. It is just a little bit of cooking, mixing and setting, that’s it – so simple! I know – the words “crunchy” and “cake” don’t seem to go along with each other. But then when I tried out this recipe, it did look like a cake and it was crunchy. A yummy snack, at its best. I had made this as a dinner dessert and it remained for the next day lunch dessert as well. What I liked in this is that the cornflakes – which give it the crunchy element – remained crunchy in-spite of being in the fridge.


I know the picture doesn’t look great – I was trying to photograph with the 50mm lense and thought the pics were good, but once I opened on my system, they actually were blurred!!! 🙁 Time to test my eyesight, I suppose…
