Sunday morning


Sunday has always been my favourite day of the week. Growing up we did fun things on Sunday. Drives to pick cherries, visits to other families. When Mr and I were a duo we spent them lazily, recovering from the nigh before’s festivities. Now we are a foursome we make pancakes, hang out and just be us. Cooking and crafting, chores and chatting feature mostly.

This Sunday morning my darling friend Amelia came to photograph us in our little corner of crazy. I know the photos will be amazing and candid and she is just the warmest, beautiful presence. My kids love her! And so do I.

Mr 4.5 and I made some honey joys whilst she was here and he declared them “sunny honey funny joys!” A brilliant name if ever there was one.

The recipe is one from the Frankie cookbook (with thanks to Amy for giving it to me):

4 cups cornflakes
100 grams butter
1/3 cup caster sugar
2 tablespoons of honey

Preheat oven to 150 degrees Celsius.

Set aside cornflakes in a bowl.

Melt butter, sugar and honey in a small saucepan over low heat.

Add melted mixture to cornflakes and stir well.

Place a tablespoon or so in patty pans (if they’re not already non-stick it’s worth greasing them!) and bake in oven for 10 minutes.

The recipe says it makes 18 or so but our patty pans were small so it made 24.

    I have always loved honey joys. Even now as an adult I can not resist them if I see them on a plate. I love Mr4.5’s nam for them too. Absolutely perfect! x
