Milk Bar Style Cornflake Chocolate Chip Cookies


There is a bakery over in New York that very much uses emotion and nostalgia at the centre of all its creations, so I have done the same. I wanted to create a truly delicious cookie that made me travel back to my childhood. Adding ground up cornflakes not only adds a nice texture but it also creates a familiar taste that is somewhat comforting.


Makes 15 cookies approx



225g Butter
200g light brown sugar, packed 80g granulated sugar
1 large egg
1⁄2 teaspoon vanilla extract 250g bread flour
1⁄2 teaspoon baking powder
1⁄2 teaspoon baking soda
6g salt
270g cornflakes, crushed
125g Dark chocolate chips


Here’s how:

Place the room temperature butter into a bowl with both sugars and beat together for 5 minutes. Stop half way and scrape down the sides if needed.
Add the egg and vanilla, then continue to mix for a further 3-4 minutes. I know it sound like a long time to mix, but it important to achieve an amazing cookie.

Now that you have mixed for the full length of time the mixture should be pale, light and fluffy.
Add the bread flour, baking powder and bicarb.
Scatter in the salt and mix slowly for 15 seconds.

Add the crushed corn flakes and the chocolate chunks and mix again for only 20 seconds, as you now don’t want to over mix and develop too much gluten.

Portion out into 70g portions and place on a tray in the fridge over night. When you’re ready, pre heat the oven to 175c and bake for 11-13 minutes.
