I’ve given these the title ‘Caramel Cornflake Biscuits’ as I don’t think – Biscuits (Dot Beagley) – really describes them. I’ve made a version of them for years for my family, but this recipe looks like it was quite a bit earlier than that. I think it’s a good example of how the old recipes keep on going.

Biscuits - Dot Beagley


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup Self Raising Flour
  • 1 cup sultanas
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup corn flakes – lightly crushed
  • 125g butter
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1 egg

Melt the butter and add to the other ingredients. Add beaten egg. Place teaspoons of mixture on a tray lined with baking paper. Press mixture together with fingers. Bake 180°C for 8-10 minutes or until golden brown. Leave on tray to cool for a few minutes and then lift off with a spatula onto wire rack to finish cooling.
