Not Enough Milk For Baking.
We were gathering with husband E's family today; probably 21 children in total and I wanted to take something for afternoon tea... I did not have a lot of milk though. 11 year old daughter found this recipe in her recipe book "Kids' Cookbook".
1 cup caster sugar
2 cups dessicated coconut
2 cups corn flakes, crushed
2 cups plain flour
2t baking powder
1t vanilla essence.
Melt butter, add sugar/cocoa, then egg. Mix in dry ingredients. Spread in lamington tin and bake 20min at 180 degrees.
I doubled the recipe and then used 2 cups of SR flour instead (ie less flour, the mix seemed to be just right at that point). I also added 2 more eggs.
Next time, I won't put the corn flakes in as it had a salty/cereal sort of taste.
