Classic Recipe: Vegan Cornflake Biscuits

Many of us would have childhood memories of crunchy Cornflake Biscuits. The original recipe from the 1940s has been reimaged as egg-free, dairy-free and completely vegan in my modern take on this classic..

This recipe has been modified from one written by Jean, who lost her husband George when he was electrocuted by a milking machine. As a young widow with four children, Jean battled on. She went on to share the recipe with her grandchildren and great-grandchildren, in loving memory of George who proclaimed these biscuits his favourite. Perhaps this recipe might re-ignite some nostalgic memories of your own.
