Cornflake slice and an introduction!

Hi! My name is Kelly and I'm a new contributor to this blog. My husband and I have four children and we have been homeschooling for 7 years. I thank you all for having me here and hope I can make some positive contributions! If you would like to know more about me you will find my blog here.

Mother in Law's recipes are great - these ladies who cooked on wood stoves (and my MIL still does) and fed the hungry hoards (my MIL had 10 little ones to feed) really knew what they were doing. We "modern" homemakers can learn so much from their ways. This recipe is from my Mum in law :)

125g butter
1 tablespoon honey
1 cup oatmeal
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup cornflakes
1 cup desicated coconut

Melt butter and honey together, add to mixed dry ingredients. Place in a shallow slice tin, press. Cook in moderate oven until golden brown (about 15 minutes) and leave in tin to cool. Turn out and cut into squares.



  1. Welcome to our blog Kelly! Thank you for accepting the invitation to contribute.

    Your recipe sounds perfect: quick and easy and it uses ingredients most of us normally have on the shelf. Your mum in law wouldn't have a recipe for a Weet-Bix slice, would she? Years ago I used to make a Weet-Bix slice topped with lemon icing. Like your cornflake recipe, it was very easy. But I lost the recipe!

  2. Sounds delicious. Maybe I could use the home brand cornflakes that my children are refusing to eat.

  3. No Sue, I don't ever recall her making a weet bix slice. I did make a weet bix chocolate slice once upon a time and that was very nice (don't have the recipe though!)

    Therese - I should have put a note that this recipe is very compatible with generic brand corn flakes, which is what I used because my kids don't like them either!
