"For all the gorgeous chocolate cakes around (and there are many), I still have a soft spot for these crunchy, chewy little cakes. I include them partly because when looking for a recipe for them recently, I found it surprisingly difficult to find one. Oh come on, don't tell me you don't like them - so get COOKING!!!"

Easy, yummy and gluten-free. I didn't know what 'golden syrup' was, so I used corn syrup and got great results :)


These are awesome and so easy to make. Golden Syrup isn't too hard to find. Any grocery store should have it. I scoop the warm flake mixture into a 1/4 cup measuring up and flip them over on my baking sheet. Then they're all the same size. You can get 9 scoops out of it that way. Try it this way too (for those who like peanutbutter and chocolate!) instead of the 3 &1/2 tbl of butter use one tablespoon of butter and 3 to 4 table spoons of peanutbutter (i like to use Adam's creamy). Just put it all in a pan and let it melt together. YUMMY


Yum! I was going to give this 4 stars, but I'm giving a bonus star for this quick, easy recipe of ingredients I had on saved me from having to resort to eating chocolate chips out of the bag! I used mini chocolate chips, and they melted really well. Also, as a previous review mentioned, I had no idea what golden syrup was so I used corn syrup (thanks previous reviewer!). I've since looked up golden syrup, and apparantly it's a syrup similar in taste and appearance to honey. It can be used as a substitute for either honey or corn syrup. In the future, I may try this recipe with honey instead...that might add an interesting flavor, and be closer to the taste of the original recipe using golden syrup. Thanks!
