Ingredients
  • 5 Weet - bix biscuits
  • 2 cups Self raising flour
  • 2 cups Dessicated coconut
  • 1 1/2 cups Brown sugar
  • 1/3 cups cocoa
  • 1/4 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 250 grams Butter or Marg
  • 1/3 cup Golden syrup
  • 1 1/2 cups Icing sugar
  • 1 tablespoon Cocoa (well rounded)
  • 1 or 2 drops Vanilla
Instructions
  1. Oven 180*C. In a food processor (or by hand crush) blitz the weet-bix biscuits fairly finely,
  2. Once the weet-bix are crushed add in the flour, brown sugar, baking powder and cocoa. Give a quick blitz to mix.
  3. Add to a large bowl the coconut and the weet-bix mix and stir.
  4. In a microwave bowl or jug add butter and golden syrup. Nuke on high for about 50-60 seconds or until melted.
  5. Immediately add butter and syrup mix to the weet-bix bowl making sure it's well blended from the bottom up. It's a fairly stiff mix.
  6. Spread and press down fairly firmly and evenly into a lined lamington tray (approx 34x24cm). Bake for approx 25 mins or until done.
  7. Blend the 1 tablespoon of cocoa with icing sugar and vanilla with enough boiling water to mix to icing consistency. Ice slice straight away and leave to cool totally in tray.
  8. Cut and serve.
Recipe Notes

The slice has to be cold to take out of tray or it will crack. I lift out of the tray carefully with the baking paper onto a board, then cut.

The reason I don't put the coconut in the processor is that the coconut to me is small enough I don't want it smaller but there is no reason you can't add it to the processor.

It's a fairly big mix halve it if need be.

You can use a little less margarine but only so much before it starts to crumble.

This slice freezes well in a sealed container.

Coconut oil works with this recipe instead of butter or margarine.

    Made this slice today. It has a biscuit like texture. I did use only 1 cup of brown sugar & coconut oil. I agree that you really don’t want to change the wet mix, as the mixture needs it to combine.
