These are the best ever cornflake biscuits my grandmother used to make. Do you remember munching on delicious home made biscuits right out of the oven? I certainly do and today I had one of those moments with our fairy god daughter Ava.
Our friend Beth dropped over with the kids this afternoon with their new puppy and an impromptu pet party took off.
The kids were up for a snack and Ava offed to make biscuits with me. I pulled out an awesome family classic and powered away baking with Ava.
The best ever cornflake biscuits seem to be the best or a lot of us. It seems this recipe has been a classic for over 80 years again. I made a small tweak buy adding rapadura sugar (unrefined and dehydrated sugar cane juice).
Given its incredible simplicity and delicate taste and light texture I can totally see why the gang today loved as much as generations before. Ava pulled this out of the very way less than an hour after we decided to do some baking.
Ava and I both hope you enjoy the biscuits as much as we loved them today.
