Corn flake Cookies – A guest post

Time for a Guest Post again! It’s indeed very exciting featuring some incredible bloggers who I do share a wonderful amity.
It’s such a joy to have Vineetha of “Malabar Ruchi” over. Welcome Vinee!Its indeed a pleasure having you over.
I am extremely happy to have met Vinee here in the blogosphere. A wonderful person and a versatile cook. Yes! Our comments on each other’s space gave way to a beautiful friendship. Ruchi is a blog I refer very often for some lip smacking Kerala recipes (even much before I joined the blogging community); a humble blog with so many wonderful recipes. Her repertoire goes from splendid Malabar recipes to some great bakes and cakes. So don’t forget to head over for some yummy goodies!   
Now over to Vineetha…
It was during one of my lazy afternoon browsing session that I stumbled upon Rekha’s blog accidentally. I was totally impressed by her blog, her beautiful pictures and superb collection of recipes. I immediately became her FB fan and  left few comments and  it led to  the beginning of a new friendship ! The one  good quality that  I really like about Rekha is the way she support and encourage other bloggers. I have seen Rekha sharing fellow bloggers recipes on  her Social media platform. It is indeed really sweet of her to do that and support other blogs.
I have to say Rekha  is a versatile blogger as she contributes a variety of recipes, some of them are very unique and innovative. Picking few favourites from her blog would be a tough job but few pictures which left me drooling are Gongura Mutton, Bread Gulab Jamun, Mediterranian Meat balls and Malai Kofta.
Thanks you  Rekha for inviting me for a guest post, its indeed a pleasure to do a guest post for friends.
Coming to todays post, it’s a melt in mouth kind of cookies with crunchy cornflakes coating. I tried this recipe from MyKitchenatics and it was a hit expect that it was a  bit less sweet to our liking, so the second time I made this I added a bit  more sugar to adjust to our liking and it was perfect.

  • Corn flour – 15 gm / 2 tbs (roughly )

  • Sugar – 100 gm /1/2cup 
  • Egg – 1 large
  • Vanilla extract – 1/4 tsp
  • Corn flakes  ( crushed ) – 40 gms/ 1 1/2 cup


Take flour, cornflour, baking powder in   a mixing bowl and stir until combined.
Cream butter and Sugar for few minutes until fluffy.
Lightly beat egg in a bowl and add this to the creamed butter.
Add vanilla extract and beat until combined.
Add the flour mixture to it and fold until combined.
Scoop out a tsp of the batter and roll it into a ball and roll them in crushed corn flakes.
Place them in a baking tray lined with a baking paper leaving few cms between each balls.
Bake them in preheated oven at 175 degree C for 25 minutes.

Oats and walnut muffins

I have to say, I am not an oats fan (oh yes I like them in my breakfast smoothies); but when I baked my Apples slices with crumbled topping, I quite liked it. And so here’s another oats recipe.
These light and fluffy muffins are so easy and quick to whip up.  They are so perfect for your breakfast. Serve freshly baked while still warm and yes don’t forget to butter them.

You need –

  • Almond Milk – 1 cup (You can use fresh milk too)
  • Instant cooking oats – 1 cup
  • All-purpose flour – 1 cup
  • Caster Sugar – 1/4 cup
  • baking soda – 1 teaspoon
  • Egg – 1
  • Vegetable oil -1/4 cup 
  • Salt – 1/4 teaspoon
  • Ground cinnamon – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Vanilla extract – 1/2 teaspoon
  • Chopped walnuts – 1/3 cup
 How to –

Preheat oven to 220°c. Grease the muffin tins or line 12 paper muffin liners . Sift the flour, cinnamon, sugar, baking soda and salt in a bowl and set aside.

In a bowl, combine milk and oats. Let it soak for 10 minutes.

In a another bowl, beat together egg, vanilla essence and oil for a minute or till well combined. Add the oat-milk mixture and mix well. 

Stir flour mixture and chopped walnuts into wet ingredients and mix till everything is well combined. Spoon batter into prepared muffin cups until cups are 2/3 full.

Bake for 15-20 minutes or until a tooth pick inserted in center comes out clean.
