Budget Pudding – Cornflake Tart

Nothing like a cheap budget tart to help those penny pinching months before the big spend at Christmas 😉

Mmmmm Cornflake Tart

Cornflake Tart

Cornflake Tart



You can buy a pack of Short crust pastry, or Look online and make your own  

115g Golden Syrup
85g Cornflakes (which we only had 65g of, so added 20g of choco flakes)
55g Butter
25g Dark brown soft sugar (I just used caster though)
1 pinch of salt
100g strawberry jam.

Cook the pastry in a quiche dish, doing the whole laying with foil and dried beans thing. Dont make Mr Hollywood moan about your soggy bottom, well not unless you want him too…. Ooooo

While pastry is cooking start the filling

Melt the sugar, butter, syrup & salt in a pan
When melted mix in the cornflakes.

When the base is done, slightly warm the jam and spread along the pastry base.
Add the cornflake mixture and then bake for another 5 mins, or wait until almost ready for eating and bake then.

Its just that simple, and cheap too. I had all the ingredients in the cupboards already so it was really a cheap budget pudding.

Serve with ice cream or custard.
