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.
- 2 cups flour
- 2 tablespoons cocoa
- 2 teaspoons baking powder
- 1 cup sugar
- 4 bars Weetabix, crushed
- 8 ounces butter, melted
- 1⁄4 cup milk
- 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.
This is a brilliant recipe to use up unwanted Weetabix. It's now become one of my son's favourite cakes, he loves it. I did however jazz it up a bit with some chopped up Snickers bars mixed in before baking along with some blobs of peanut butter. No need for the icing if you do this.
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!
