Very nice but I prefer it with oats instead of cornflakes and only half the sugar (replace with more oats). It only just fills my 17x25cm tin so I would increase the recipe by 50% for a 20x30cm tin.

This recipe is great! already made it twice already. Personally I find no need for the icing as the slice is already sweet enough! I didn't use the sultanas and still tasted amazing, definitely recommend!

What size baking pan should this be made in? I made it in a smaller swiss roll tin and it was too brittle and short, hard to cut up and fell apart. I think if I used a smaller pan it would have been better.
CHELSEA: sorry that this wasn't specified. We recommend using a 20cm x 30cm sponge roll tin - have just updated the recipe accordingly.

My overseas visitors love this slice as much as we do.

i really like this recipe. it uses up the left over corn flakes and my partner really likes it too. i didn't use sultanas or coconut as i don't like coconut and it was lovely.
