Ingredients

  • 3 weetbix (or 55 grams of another similar wheat-based cereal)
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 1 cup SR flour
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 teaspoon cocoa
  • 125 grams butter

Icing

  • 1 1/2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon cocoa
  • 1 tablespoon butter (15 grams)
  • 1-2 tablespoon boiling water

Instructions

  • Pre-heat oven to moderate (I use 170 degrees celsius, fan-forced).
  • Grease a slice tin (approx 26 x 16 cm) and line with baking paper, leaving excess on the sides to lift out slice once cooked.
  • Crush weetbix into a bowl.
  • Add remaining dry ingredients to bowl and stir to combine.
  • Melt butter and add to dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • Press mixture into slice tin with hands and even the top surface using the back of a spoon.
  • Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Start preparing the icing a few minutes before the slice is ready to be removed from the oven. This slice is iced while hot from the oven.

Icing

  • Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the boiling water to the butter and allow butter to melt.
  • Add melted butter mixture to icing sugar and mix well.
  • Add a little extra boiling water if necessary so the icing is soft enough to spread. Spread the icing over the slice while still hot.
  • Allow to cool completely before lifting from the tin using the baking paper and slicing into 24 pieces.
