When I think of classic biscuit recipes, Jam Drop Biscuits are right up there at the top of the list! This recipe is a variation of the classic, using cornflakes to make them crunchier and even more delicious. They are a favourite in our family and an enticing addition to the lunchbox. You can download a printer friendly version of this recipe below.


125g butter
1 cup plain flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 cup cornflakes
½ cup raw sugar
½ teaspoon vanilla essence
Strawberry jam

Preheat oven to 180⁰C.
Melt butter in a saucepan large enough to mix all ingredients. Remove from heat.
Add sifted flour, baking powder, cornflakes, sugar and vanilla essence. Mix until well combined.
Press spoonfuls of mixture into shape, leaving a little well in the middle. Spoon a small amount of jam into the well. Bake for 20-25 minutes or until golden.
