This is Mr G’s attempt to be ‘creative’ in the kitchen. He added cocoa to his basic CORNFLAKE COOKIES recipe. In my opinion, he should have added more cocoa, maybe ¼ cup instead of two tbsp. You be the judge, if you are willing to take up the challenge. I have to however, give him kudos for trying. Here’s the recipe.


125 g butter
½ cup sugar
1 egg – lightly beaten
1 cup cornflakes
1 - 2 cup cornflakes – lightly crushed – for coating
1 cup self raising flour plus 2 tbsp cocoa powder
1 to 1 ½ cups sultanas*
Pinch of salt*


Lightly grease baking trays and preheat oven to 180°c.

Sift flour and add * ingredients.

Cream butter and sugar till fluffy. Add flour mix and egg and blend thoroughly. Now add 1 cup of cornflakes. Lightly combine the mixture as you don’t want the cornflakes to dissolve.

Roll 2 tsp of dough into small balls and coat with cornflakes.
Flatten slightly and place on greased trays. Bake for around 15 mins, in a 180°c oven.

Remove from tray and cool on wire rack/s. Makes around 30 cookies.

Dear VG

An excellent website, covers diversity and looks at the world of cooking from more than a myopic view.

Love all the tit bits on movies and other stuff you have. Keep up the good work.

Vin, Hari Raya Haji is just around the corner and your cookies look yummy!! Tapi akak x buat cookies rasanya, since that Raya Haji is not as merrier as Aidilfitri in Malaysia (except for Kelantan and Terengganu) and I'll be continuing for holidays starting from 2nd Hari Raya...hehee (*if the weather is clear..haahaa)..musim banjir ni kan.. :(

VG, I think Mr. G did a very good job. And yes, kudos to him. I know whenever Bob gets in the kitchen he tries his darnest. We have wonderful mates, don't we? :)

Thank you Priya. I'll pass the comment on to Mr G.

Kak Ummi - Happy Hari Raya Haji. Not making cookies? Tanpalah, with the current economic situation, we need to be a bit frugal, ya. Pi jalan rumah member yang ada buat kuih - makan di sana sajalah, he!he!

Take care with the floods, okay. Don't let the children play near the river. I remember one year when I was living in the Army flats in Batu 2, Jalan Gambang, we could not leave the house for three days! Nasib baik my mother stocked up on food!!!

Teresa dearest - indeed we are blessed with good partners. Don't let them know we are saying this though; it might go to their heads! 'chuckle'
