• 100 gms butter    
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 rounded tablesp. strongly flavoured honey
  • 1 cup flour (plain or a combination of wholemeal and plain)
  • ½ teaspoon baking soda
  • 1 cup lightly crushed cornflakes


  • Cream butter, sugar and honey together.
  • Stir in flour and baking soda.
  • Finally stir in cornflakes.
  • Put on tray in usual way.
  • Lightly flatten with a fork.
  • Bake 170°C 12 minutes

The lower temperature is very important when cooking with honey as it burns more easily.
