I prefer eating than baking so my recipes are as lazy as they can be! This is a very lazy recipe for the irresistable traybakes that i got as a child in school however still yummy!


For the base:

  • Ready rolled sweet shortcrust pastry
  • You can make your own pastry but i can't be bothered

For topping:

  • 110g Strawberry jam
  • 110g Golden Syrup
  • 80g Cornflakes
  • 40g Butter
  • 30g Sugar


  • STEP 1
    Pre heat oven to the temp it will say on ready rolled packet or to the recipe your using for the pastry.
  • STEP 2
    Grease a baking tray and lay out pastry in a square, rectangle or cut into circle. Stab with fork about 10 times.
  • STEP 3
    Place pastry into oven for 20 minutes or to your recipe. While the pastry bakes place sugar, butter and syrup into pan. Heat to a simmer but do not let it burn. Stir continuously.
  • STEP 4
    Once caramel colour remove syrup mix from hob and mix in cornflakes so that every bit is covered.
  • STEP 5
    Once pastry is golden brown remove from oven and allow to cool. Once cooled spread jam all over, covering it all.
  • STEP 6
    Spread cornflake mix over jam and pastry and place in fridge to cool.
  • STEP 7
    Once cooled tale out of fridge cut into custom pieces and devour!!
