  • 1 cup softened butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 cups self-rising flour
  • 1 ½ teaspoons ground ginger
  • 1 cup golden raisins sultanas
  • 3 cups cornflakes, approximately


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F (180°C). Line 2 or 3 baking sheets with parchment paper.
  • Beat butter and sugar in a large bowl with an electric mixer until creamy. Add the eggs one at a time, beating well after each addition and scraping down the side of the bowl. Add vanilla and beat until mixture is light and fluffy.
  • Fold in flour, ginger and raisins; stir until combined.
  • Roll rounded tablespoons of the mixture into balls. Roll each ball in cornflakes until well coated. Place on baking sheet, allowing for spread – about 8 per sheet. Bake for 15 minutes or until golden. Let stand on baking sheets for 5 minutes before removing to a wire rack to cool completely.
