I love ginger crunch or lemon & coconut slice but most slices I find far too sweet especially the ones you buy from bakeries - just taste sweet rather than having any individual flavour to them, very generic

Double Chocolate Brownies

200 grams butter
1 1/2 cups white sugar
3 eggs
1 cup white flour
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
65 grams cocoa
1 block Cadbury Chocolate

Melt butter in pot as butter is starting to melt add sugar
(you want the sugar to be melted and once it starts to boil take off ring)
Cool for a minute or two and then add beaten eggs and beat fast(you don't want to cook eggs)
Add cocoa and flour and baking powder and mix
Put 1/2 the mixture into a baking paper lined tin
Break up a block of Cadbury Chocolate into pieces and dot on top of the 1/2 mixture
Put rest of mixture on top covering all the chocolate pieces
Bake for 35- 45 minutes at 160 c (depending in your oven mine takes 45 mins plus)
take out brownie and test with a cake pin or knife to make sure brownie is cooked if not put in for longer
Cool cut into pieces and enjoy

Hi I'm looking for a nice slice or square recipe, can someone help me please.

Chef_countrygirl6, May 28, 10:54 pm

We used to call it Fly Cemetery, I'm not sure what its real name is. it has currants, and jam and cinnamon in it.

Chef_southerngurl, May 28, 10:59 pm

Hi Southerngurl .Thank you for your reply. I know the square, but like you I cant think of name.

Chef_countrygirl6, May 28, 11:20 pm

My favourite is because it is so quick and easy and can also be used as a base to a peppermint slice. Chocolate Coconut Slice.

Chef_kiwisportsgirl, May 28, 11:57 pm

I think my mum called them Laughing Jennys

I really like the Takaka Oaty Ginger Slice that's been featured here many times in the past.

Chef_kaddiew, May 29, 8:46 am



Me too - but I put sunflower and pumpkin seeds in the base and crystallized ginger in the icing. Just a few changes I have made for myself over the years.

Chef_maynard9, May 29, 8:51 am

Wanganui slice.

Chef_battgirl, May 29, 8:59 am



I've done the crystallised ginger, but hadn't thought of the seeds. thanks! : )

Chef_kaddiew, May 29, 9:15 am

No worries - happy to share ideas - that is what this messageboard is meant to be all about - wink.

I made Texas slice - I got the recipe off of here, it went down very well with all the work mates, expensive to make but worth it

Chef_dibble35, May 29, 6:11 pm

Thank you for all the replies

Chef_countrygirl6, May 29, 11:26 pm


Yep that was the one, it did make a tin full - but it didn't last very long as got scoffed by the work mates
