Sometimes, unwinding can come in the form of going into the kitchen and serving yourself a bowl of cornflakes and milk. After that, sink into your couch, pull down the blinds, and turn on Netflix. How about shaking things up a little by making your own wholemeal corn flakes? Never thought you could? That narrative is about to change now that you have stumbled on this article.
Let’s make this recipe!
- Vegetable or grapeseed oil
- 1 1/2 cups yellow cornmeal
- 1 tablespoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt
- 1 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
- Place a rack in the center of the oven. Preheat to 350 degrees. Line a parchment paper and grease with baking spray or oil.
- In a medium bowl, whisk cornmeal, sugar, and salt. Add the vanilla extract and ¾ cup water slowly.
- Stir until the batter becomes smooth and thin. If it appears dry, add water
- Pour the batter onto the baking sheet. Make sure you spread it out even without reaching the edges.
- Add the remaining ½ cup cornmeal with 1 teaspoon water. Mix until mixture resembles coarse breadcrumbs.
- Sprinkle batter with the cornmeal crumbs for an extra crunchy texture.
- Bake on the center rack for 15 minutes or until the dough dries out and cracks. It should have a cracked-arid desert landscape appearance.
- Remove from the oven and reduce the oven temperature to 250 degrees F. After the baking sheet cools, use your hand to crack the dough into small flakes.
- Return flakes to the oven and bake on the center rack for 45 minutes or until the pieces are toasted, crispy, and golden.
- Once cool, serve with milk.
- Store leftovers in an airtight container in a cool dry place for 2 weeks.
