Cornflakes Butter Cake

Labels: { }

Wholesome cornflakes combined with butter, creme fraiche, and caramel ice cream (summer leftover)makes this cake incredibly delicious!

  • 200 g Creme fraiche
  • 100 g Caster sugar
  • 2 Eggs
  • 60 g Caramel ice cream, softened
  • 240 g Pastry flour
  • 1 tbsp Baking powder
  • 150 g Butter
  • 80 g Caramel ice cream
  • 2 tbsp Caramel syrup
  • 3 cup Cornflakes
  1. Preheat the oven to 200C/400F. Line a 30x40cm baking tray with paper. Beat the creme fraiche and sugar in a mixing bowl until the mixture is smooth and thickens. Add in eggs, one at a time and beat until fully incorporated. Stir in the ice cream until combined.
  2. Gently mix in flour and baking powder, until just combined. Spread the batter evenly into the prepared baking tray and bake in the center for 10 minutes.
  3. While the cake is baking, melt the butter, caramel ice cream and caramel sugar syrup in a pot. Turn the heat off and fold in cornflakes. Remove the cake from the oven and spread the cornflake mixture over. Return it to the oven and bake for a further 10 minutes.

The texture contrast between the crispy coanflakes and moist cake must be quite nice. Looks delicious!

Rylan 23/9/10 11:07

ANGIE!!!! I MISS YOU!!!!!!!

And yes, I missed your wonderful pastries too! This one looks soooo good. I actually have a ton of cornflakes in the pantry that are about to expire. You know, I could definitely make use of them now. Thanks to you!

Anonymous 23/9/10 12:20

I like the contrast of textures and the use of left overs...and here I through corn flakes were fore breakfast. Absolutely delicious.

What a fun way to use cornflakes! The caramel ice cream leftover sounds perfect with this cake. ;)

Mika 24/9/10 11:00

What a particular recipe...I never thought to use ice cream to make a cake or a topping...but looks delicious...

A Canadian Foodie 24/9/10 21:17

I have a recipe for cornflake cookies that my mom makes every Christmas... it is the antithesis of nutritious.

Anonymous 25/9/10 01:23

how could it not be tasty with those ingredients? it is kind of funny to read through the ingredients. it sounds like you were cleaning out your pantry and freezer (lucky us!). can't wait to try it out.

A Thought For Food 25/9/10 05:09

Did you say butter? Because anything that calls for this much butter must be delightful!

This 'Cornflakes butter cake' looks so yummy and delicious.It has less ingredients to make this cake and I will make it in this weekend for dessert.

Pam @ Kitchen Cookware Set 25/9/10 06:14

Corn Flakes cake, wow that is so unique. I never knew you could bake something with cornflakes, really cool idea. I have tons (2 box) of cereal that I can use to make this.

Gloria 25/9/10 18:37

Angie I love this recipe!! Love your blog! gloria

Stella 26/9/10 00:04

Hey Angie, these look wonderful. I'm curious as to whether they are cake bars or just cake. I'm about to make bars and I'm researching bar recipes. Would you consider this a bar? They look like bars but also like cake (smile). Please do let me know if/when you get a chance. Thanks, Stella

Angie's Recipes 26/9/10 06:38

Do you consider brownies a type of bars? Sometimes I got quite confused with the categorization.
I think the cornflake butter cake is more a traybake than a cake.


OohLookBel 26/9/10 14:37

I've used cornflakes in cookies, but never in a cake. This recipe sounds delicious (caramel ice cream will do that!)

Foodessa 27/9/10 22:56

Angie...just seeing the word caramel splattered all over made me want to devour the whole dessert...yummy!!!

Flavourful wishes,

Magic of Spice 29/9/10 00:44

This are fantastic...I want them for breakfast, I mean they do have cornflakes and all :)

OysterCulture 3/10/10 16:41

What a great recipe, I bet it tastes amazing and I love the crunch that the cornflakes provide. What a nice idea.
