My Mum used to make a tray bake which had crushed cornflakes, coconut and some other things in it. I think she baked it for a short while then added plain icing on top. I have taken a wild notion to have some.
I am wondering if anyone recognises the tray bake I mean? It came out sort of flapjacky rather than spongy.
I also have a recipe given to me by an Australian she called it Fudge Slice but may well be the same as shyandmighty. It involves cornflakes and coconut but is topped with chocolate - it is kind of flap jack like rather than cakey. It is really quick to make and quite yummy.
