Hurstville Family Recipes

Hurstville and its surrounding suburbs are a melting pot of vibrant food and culture.
We asked people from our community to send us recipes of some of their favourite foods that they love to make for family and friends.
Our second Hurstville Family Recipe is from Jacqui! Who is sharing with all of us a wonderful and Easy 1,2,3 recipe.

I love having recipes that remind me of family and friends. When I receive a recipe from someone, I always include their name in the recipe. The following recipe belonged to my Nan “Hilda”.

Nan Hilda's 1,2,3's

Difficulty: Easy        Recipe type: Desserts

3 cups cornflakes

Whipped cream to serve

Special Equipment

Mix master.

  1. Pre-heat oven to 140*C.
  2. Line a baking tray with baking paper.
  3. In the mix master beat egg whites until stiff. Beat sugar in gradually.
  4. Fold in cornflakes.
  5. Place 1-2 tablespoon of the mixture onto baking tray, and put in the oven for 25- 30 minutes.
  6. Do not leave out in air or they will go soft. Store in airtight container when they have cooled down.
    Will keep 1-2 days.
  7. Whip some cream and serve immediately.

    Tip: Really yummy with strawberries and grated chocolate.

I used to love it when I went to her house and she had made 1,2,3’s. As a little girl I clearly remember her reciting the recipe when I asked her why they were called 1.2.3’s, as I thought that was such a funny name. Her reply was, 1 cup of sugar, 2 egg whites and 3 cups of cornflakes. It is now a family favourite with my own children and now and known as Nanna Lapham’s 1,2,3.s!!
