Susan's biscuit tin - cereal slice

A slight change of name for the day in honour of my partners mum's recipe i will be sharing. What a fantastic time i have had sorting through these old recipes - custard pies, fudge slice, banana loaf and gingerbread biscuits to name a few.

I had trouble picking my first recipe to try out. I was looking for something for the boy's lunchbox and and came across cereal slice which sounded healthy right? WRONG! The title is where the health ends. Ok so there's rolled oats, coconut and weetbix in it, but there is also - wait for it - 250g of butter. Yup seriously just for one batch.

So what did i do? Made it of course, anything with that much butter is guaranteed to taste good.

Cereal slice

Melt together
250g butter
4 T honey

In a bowl mix together

2 C self raising flour
1 C sugar
1 C coconut
4 weetbix, crushed
1 C rolled oats
1 C sultanas

Add butter mixture into dry ingredients and mix well. 
Press in a slice tin approx 30cm x 20cm

Bake in a moderate (180C) oven for 20-25mins until golden brown.

Allow to cool, cut into small slices and enjoy.

This is more a special treat slice than an everyday one but the butteriness is delicious and reminiscent of many old baking recipes. Definitely worth a go, all the flavours of the oats and coconut really come out in this recipe. I reckon you could add in anything you wanted to this - nuts, dried fruit etc..

Hope you're having a great week.
