I can't believe this isn't on here! This has got to be one of the easiest baking recipes I use on a regular basis. I am sure this is from a Taranaki cookbook. It's just delicious! I use chocolate icing.
- Mix all dry ingredients together.
- Add melted butter.
- Add milk as required to keep mixture moist (may need a little less or a little more depending on how moist mixture is).
- Press into a greased tray.
- Bake for 20 - 25 minutes at 180 degrees celcius.
- Ice with favourite icing.
- Leave to set in fridge.
Definitely more like a brownie but with crunchy weetabix flakes. Yummy and different. i didn't frost/ice it because it was plenty sweet as written. i did sub in soy milk. It doesn't stick together very well, but we didn't mind it falling apart enough to stop eating it. :-) Thanks for posting this!
My family loves it! Reminds me of a slice I used to make back in the 90s :) I think I got the recipe - or one very similar - from my intermediate school cooking teacher :) - oh yeah, this was more slice-y then fudge-y for me. Could be why some people are confused and describe it kind of like a brownie?? I imagined it would be a bit sweeter, but that was not a problem, I wouldn't change a thing. I used a quick basic icing of icing sugar, cocoa, butter and water. And fyi, I used a 24x18cm pan and it was fine, but due to personal preferance, I'll use a 24x24cm tin next time - there will certainly be a next time!
One person who tasted it said it tastes "like matzah" (which basically means it's a tasteless cracker)... but nobody else complained much, they just didn't RAVE. I used Splenda and maragarine, and soy milk to keep it non-dairy. I used half a cup of liquid and it wasn't very moist. The recipe doesn't state what size pan to use, so I used a 9" x 13" baking pan and put it in the oven at 350 F. I've never made fudge before, but this seems to be awfully brownie-like! Maybe I left it in the oven too long, because it cracked when I tried to cut it into squares. I didn't ice it, either, just left it as is. It's a different way to use up the Weetabix, at least. Thanks.
