I spent last week in sunny Cornwall and went back to work on Monday, which felt just like the first day back at school, when you accept that summer is over and feel the long year stretching out ahead of you. There’s also a chill in the air in the mornings, dew on the grass and my calendar has flipped over to September.
I therefore decided I needed comfort food and made one of the best school-age snacks; cornflake cakes!
I can’t call this a recipe, as all you do is melt some chocolate over a simmering pan of water and then stir in your cornflakes (mine had gone soft, which was the perfect excuse to make cornflake cakes!), but I can tell you it tastes delicious and thoroughly recommend you get making right away…
PS I love my polka dot cake cases, but how amazing are these flower pot cake cases from Lakeland?
