Easy cornflakes recipes

3 cornflakes

Munching down on snacks ranks high on my to-do list for every house visit during the festive season. Put a tub of pineapple tarts in front of me and I’ll probably polish off half of it. One item that is never spared from my rampage is cornflakes cups.

Bite-sized and easy to eat, these tasty morsels come in all shapes and sizes. Using simple pantry ingredients, I’ve put an easy-to-make spin on the humble cornflakes and came up with three easy cornflakes recipes for Hari Raya.

1. Oreo Cornflakes Cups

Oreo and cornflakes are two ingredients that do not commonly appear together. But add a generous dollop of creamy condensed milk and you’ll get a decadent dessert that will wow your guests.

Start off by separating the Oreo cookies from the cream filling. Then, melt condensed milk with the Oreo cream filling on low heat. Stir occasionally and remove from the pan when it gets thick and syrupy. This should take around a minute or so.

As for the Oreo cookies, put them in a ziplock bag and crush until fine. Pour the syrup into a bowl of cornflakes and add in crushed Oreo cookies. Mix well to incorporate everything nicely.

Divide the cornflakes and syrup mixture into small portions, and scoop them into individual baking cups. Just like the chocolate cups, chill these cups in the refrigerator for at least an hour before serving.

Cooking time: 15 minutes

50g cornflakes

You might want to keep an eye out for these addictive cornflakes though; your guests might just finish them in a jiffy.

Start off by shallow frying curry leaves with butter on low heat. Heat control is essential here as the butter burns easily. Fry the curry leaves for around three to four minutes, or until the curry leaves get nice and aromatic. Toss in the sliced chilli padi and continue to fry for another minute or so.

Add the salted egg powder, sugar, and evaporated milk, and give everything a good stir. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the cornflakes to combine evenly.

Spread the cornflakes evenly on a pan and bake in an oven on 170 degrees for five to seven minutes, or until the cornflakes turn slightly golden brown. Make sure to spread the cornflakes out evenly so that they don’t turn soggy.

60g cornflakes
70g unsalted butter
4g curry leaves, washed and drained
6 chilli padi, sliced finely
60g Knorr salted egg yolk powder

  2. Add in the chopped chilli padi and cook for another minute.
  3. Add in the salted egg yolk powder, evaporated milk, and sugar. Mix well. Remove from heat when the sauce is thick.
