It's no Betty Crocker, but it'll do

This is by no means a rival for any of the tastier, healthier or fancier varieties out there. But if you're looking for that kind of cooking you can do to while away *that* time of the late afternoon or need to satiate a certain little person's insistence to "cook sumfin", here is a quick, simple slice that you can make most likely from the things you have in stock in your pantry and fridge.

Weet-Bix Loaf
4 Weet-Bix (we use Vita-Britz as our brick of choice in this house)
1 cup SR flour
1 cup coconut (we only had shredded and this worked fine)
3/4 cup brown sugar
125g melted butter
1 tsp vanilla essence

Crumble the Weet-Bix into a large mixing bowl. Add the flour, coconut and brown sugar. Mix and combine well. Make a hole in the middle of the mix and pour in the melted butter and vanilla essence. Stir to combine then spoon into a greased and lined slice tin. Press down with the back of a spoon until smooth. Bake in a preheated 180ÂșC oven for 20 minutes. Cool.

Makes 12 slices.
