Cornflake Tart

Check out this classic childhood recipe by the amazing Costello's Bakery - delicious served with warm custard.


  • Ready-made pastry base or ready rolled short-crust pastry

  • 50g butter

  • 125g golden syrup

  • 25g demerara sugar

  • 125g strawberry or raspberry jam

  • 100g cornflakes


If not using a pre-made pastry base, roll out the ready rolled pastry and press into a tart tin. Bake for 15 mins until just golden.

Spoon the jam into the pastry base and press down creating an even layer.

Heat the butter, golden syrup and sugar in a pan and stir until combined and meted.

Take off the heat and stir in the cornflakes until coated well.

Spoon the cornflake mixture into the pastry base and spread evenly.

Return the tart to the oven for 5 minutes until the cornflakes are golden and toasted and serve warm with custard.
