    Melting Moments

    Here is a fancy cake which would have been eaten at many an afternoon

    4oz cornflour
    3oz butter
    2oz caster sugar
    One egg
    Level teaspoon baking powder
    Teaspoon grated lemon rind
    Icing sugar

    Cream the butter (margarine will do) and sugar until light and fluffy
    and add the lemon rind. Sieve the cornflour and baking powder together.
    Break the egg into a bowl and beat with a fork. Add a small amount
    (about a tablespoon) of egg and a similar amount of cornflour
    alternately to the creamed butter and sugar, beating well between each
    addition. Place about a dozen paper cake cases in a baking tin and add
    a teaspoonful of mixture to each case (use the back of another spoon to
    push it off). Place in a pre-heated oven at 375F/180C/Gas mark 4 and
    bake 10 minutes until firm and golden (don't let them get beyond a
    golden colour). Allow the cakes to cool on a rack and then add a
    dusting of the icing sugar.

    Butter - 110g (4 oz)
    Caster sugar - 75g (3 oz)
    Egg yolk - 1
    Vanilla extract - few drops
    Self-raising flour - 150g (5 oz)
    Crushed cornflakes - for rolling
    Glace cherries - halved for decoration (optional)

    Pre-heat oven to 190 C / 375 F / Gas 5. Grease two baking sheets Cream
    the butter and sugar together, until pale and fluffy. Beat in the egg
    yolk. Add the vanilla and stir in the flour to give a smooth dough and
    divide into 24 portions.. Form each piece into a ball and roll in crushed
    cornflakes. Press half a glace cherry in the centre of each biscuit (if
    using). Place the balls on the baking sheets and bake for 15-20 minutes.
    Cool on the baking sheets for a few moments before lifting on to a wire

    Instead of cornflakes, use 50g (2 oz) rolled oats. Press half a glace
    cherry in the centre of each biscuit.
