Cornflake Jam Tart Recipe


Step 1: Prepare the Pastry

  1. Preheat the oven to 180C/160C fan/gas 4.
  2. Roll out the pastry on a lightly floured surface until it's large enough to fit a 23cm tart tin with a loose bottom.
  3. Lift the pastry over the tin with a rolling pin, pressing it into the corners and sides, leaving some overhanging pastry.
  4. Trim the excess, leaving a small amount hanging over the edge.

Step 2: Pre-Bake the Pastry

  1. Place baking paper around the pastry edges and fill with baking beans or raw rice.
  2. Bake for 15 minutes. Remove the parchment and beans, then bake for an additional 5-10 minutes until just golden.
  3. Remove from the oven and trim any excess pastry using a serrated knife.

Step 3: Prepare the Cornflake Mixture

  1. In a small pan with a pinch of salt, melt the butter and smooth out the sugar, syrup, and butter, stirring often.
  2. Add the cornflakes to the butter mixture, ensuring they are well coated.

Step 4: Assemble the Tart

  1. Spread the jam evenly over the cooked pastry base.
  2. Sprinkle the cornflake mixture on top of the jam, pressing down slightly to cover it completely.

Step 5: Final Bake

  1. Return the tart to the oven and bake for an additional 5 minutes or until the cornflakes are golden and toasty.

Step 6: Cool and Serve

  1. Allow the tart to cool down. Be cautious as the jam can become very hot.
  2. Enjoy the delightful Cornflake Jam Tart, either on its own or served with custard.
