I love the Cornflake slice BJB it got high marks in my family. Not too sweet, I didn't have any rolled oats so just added a bit more flour - really nice!
Thanks for your comment, pleased you like it. Good idea about using xtra flour.

B J B - I made your slice on Sunday. It has now gone to friends and neighbours to enjoy along with a few for our household! Great recipe, thanks. I admit, I did ice it though.

Had a hankering for Ginger Crunch but could not bring myself to pay $4 for one slice. Hardly bake these days as living alone with a whole cake can spell disaster for the hips.This was the morning I got up and gathered the doings for my Ginger Crunch after finding my Edmonds book.
I used my hardly utilised kitchen machine for the mixing. Had to dig for the slice tin in the garage. Not a hitch and it was in the oven in no time at all.
The ingeds. for the icing nearly had me spitting tacks as it was so many tsps of icing sugar G. Syrup ginger and butter. Got it on the stove and as it melded I thought it was a bit runny looking. Checked the Ingreds. again and found I had read Tblsp for the Syrup. Tossed it down the sink and started again. It was a bit cold by the time I tore myself away from the football but it is cut I had my first slice for breakfast.Yum, and there are 15 to go. You've still got it, Joybel !!!!
