Cornflake raisin slice

Itching for a snack?  Ahhh.... think these crispy cornflake slices are just what you need to satisfy your craving along with a hot cup of coffee, tea or even a glass of  milk.

This is best eaten on the day it's baked.  Leftovers?  Just pop them into the oven toaster for a minute ... the layer of jam will somehow soften the cornflakes if left overnight.

  13. It looks delicious! I'm a little confused with the ingredients though. May I ask, Did you use any eggs for the base? Also, how much butter and sugar did you use for the toppings?

    Thanks for highlighting....Have missed out the butter and sugar for the topping. There's no egg for the base. I've edited the recipe, hope it's clear now.

    Thanks for visiting. I didn't put more jam on the batter, and bearing in mind that the base is somewhat like cake batter, it's soft. Also more jam will also affect the cornflakes topping. Perhaps you should bake it a bit longer. That's why for leftovers, best to put them in the oven toaster for a minute or so.
