CEREAL CRUMB SLICE ~ Cheapskates Recipe

This recipe is fantastic for using up leftover crumbs from the bottom of your cereal  box.  Normally I would put them in the chook bucket, but then I discovered this recipe from one of the members over at the Cheapskates site

I needed to make something quick for hubby to take to work today, so this slice is great when time is short...

Yum, yum!!

Cereal Crumb Slice




Ingredients:
2 cups of dried cereal crumbs ( I save them from the bottom of the Weetbix, Weetbix Crunch, Mini Wheats etc and put them in a zip lock bag until I have 2 cups) 
1 cup of any flour(self raising, plain or wholemeal) 
1/2 cup coconut 
2/3 cup of any sugar (brown or white) 
1 cup of any choc bits (Homebrand is good) 
1/2 cup of any dried fruit 
4 oz melted butter or marg 
1 or 2 tablespoons of milk

 Method: 
Melt butter in microwave or on stove. Add all other ingredients and enough milk to get a slightly moist consistency. Press into lined slice tin and bake in moderate oven for about 30 minutes. Make up a simple icing (about 1 cup) such as lemon or chocolate and smooth over slice while still warm. Sprinkle with coconut to decorate.   


Enjoy!

  4. That is such a good idea, Tania. My son never finishes the crumbs from his cereal. I could make this for the menfolk when I get enough crumbs for the recipe. Thanks.
