This worked fabulously well. I used bran flakes instead of cornflakes and used dates instead of cherries and my slice is moist and chewy and addictive. I doubled the recipe to fit a big slice pan and now better be careful that I don't eat the lot !! Made and loved for Sweet Traditions Tag game.
I made these over the Thanksgiving Holiday weekend to take to my mom and dad's house. These were very good and as the recipe states -- very sweet. I used cherry faloverd craisins for the glace cherries. These are very good! Thanks for posting! Made for Sweet Traditions game November 2009.
Oh my goodness, this was good. Very simple and very yummy, and pretty to boot! I used some raisins and made up the difference with dried tart cherries. I flattened it out on a baking sheet, about 1/2 thick. The edges are crispy and the rest is chewy and sweet. I added some drizzled glaze even though it needs no more sweetness, it's just prettier that way! I'm very pleased with this recipe and I will make it again, thanks Mia!
Very good, thanks, Mia! I cut back on the granulated sugar, kept all the Golden syrup, and it was sweet enough, so I did not ice them. Also, I used dried cherries. I used an 8"' by 8" pan, a perfect fit!
I remember sitrring the mix and putting in the oven, I even remember icing these......... so I just must be going mad...... I know it did all BUT where did they go, they just disappeared!!!!
No joke these little things are delcious and the family demolished them, even fought over who had gotten more....lol
I only made one change to the recipe and that was to add some crushed nuts, because DH loves anything with nuts. Everthing else was per the recipe.
No wonder you have wonderful memories of this recipe Mia, it is now going to be something I will remember and make again for sure.
Thanks so much for sharing.
this is kinda addictive .its really easy and tastes good next .time i would cut the cherries finer and not have it so high would make thinner . good stuff made for think pink
