Aussie mum's 'Weetbix slice' recipe kicks off huge controversy

An Aussie mum has kicked up a huge storm after sharing her 'Weetbix slice' recipe online, with opinions divided over whether it's delicious or disgusting.

Vanessa Strong, 31, lives in Brisbane and regularly posts to TikTok, where she shares recipes and delicious baking clips.

Her latest video was aimed at anyone who claims "Australians don't have a cultural dish", the mum setting out to prove those people wrong.

But did she crack out the fairy bread, Vegemite sandwich or even old school damper? Nope.

Instead Strong whipped up a batch of Weetbix slice, an unusual treat made from coconut, sugar, cocoa and – of course – Weetbix.

Her recipe called for six crushed Weetbix, one cup of shredded coconut, one cup of brown sugar, one cup of self-raising flour, two tablespoons of cocoa and 250 grams of melted butter.

Mix all that in a bowl, then pour it into a baking tray and stick it in the oven for 15 minutes at 170 degrees.

At the end, Strong added melted chocolate and coconut to the top of her slice, before sharing a delicious shot of the finished product.

Though her "Aussie family recipe" isn't super common Down Under, plenty of TikTok users said it looked tasty.

"One of my favourites," one person wrote, another adding: "This look so yummy."

Others weren't so sure about how legitimate the Aussie "cultural" dish was.

"I've never seen this in my life and I'm Australian," one said, several other Aussie TikTok users agreeing.

Another wrote: "As an Australian I'm going to say our cultural dish is fairy bread."

Meanwhile, several people pointed out that Weetbix slice is actually more common in New Zealand than Australia.

Still, we can't help but want to try a bite – it looks pretty darn good.


  • Pre-heat oven
  • Grease a slice tin (approximately 26 x 16 cm) and line with baking paper, leaving excess on the sides to lift out slice once cooked.
  • Crush Weetbix into a bowl.
  • Add remaining dry ingredients to bowl and stir to combine.
  • Melt butter and add to dry ingredients. Mix well.
  • Press mixture into slice tin with hands and even the top surface using the back of a spoon.
  • Cook for 20 minutes.
  • Start preparing the icing a few minutes before the slice is ready to be removed from the oven. This slice is iced while hot from the oven.
  • Sift icing sugar and cocoa into a bowl.
  • Add 1 tablespoon of the boiling water to the butter and allow butter to melt.
  • Add melted butter mixture to icing sugar and mix well.
  • Add a little extra boiling water if necessary so the icing is soft enough to spread. Spread the icing over the slice while still hot.
  • Allow to cool completely before lifting from the tin using the baking paper and slicing into 24 pieces.

No Bake Chocolate Weetbix Slice

This no-bake chocolate weetbix slice is a super easy kid-friendly recipe. I was going to say baking idea, but it is no-bake! In New Zealand we say Kiwi Kids are Weetbix kids, it is a very very popular breakfast cereal, low in salt and sugar it ticks a lot of nutrition boxes for me.

Elsewhere I believe this no-bake chocolate Weetbix slice may go by another name, perhaps no bake chocolate Weetabix slice in the UK or maybe just no bake wheat biscuit slice… either way I am very confident you will be able to use any brand of wheat biscuit style breakfast cereal to make it.

Don’t forget to check out the video too! You will find it just down the page a bit.

Great recipe! Tried it this afternoon and there is almost none left. Simple to make but difficult to resist. Everyone has persuaded themselves that it is healthy because it has weet bix in it!

lilly says.
its the 2nd time ive made it and it still cooling down i needed to add more milk to the icing and i new how too make it of by heart!
:D

I have a big packet of weet-bix and don't fancy it for breakfast after the first trial. Good thing I found this recipe so now I know what to do with the packet! Thanks!

it was hard to find weet bix in stockholm but i've managed and looking forward to the results. ha!

I love this, it is like my mum and nan used to make when I was a kid.
They used to put Marshmallow on top sometimes for a change but I can't find their recipe, can you help.
I have my grand daughters using this site to teach them to cook. They love the way it is so simple for them to follow and now enjoy trying new things. Thank you,
Dorothy

We have added your marshmallow slice recipe request to our to-do list.

Very great recipe! tried it and has worked wonders especially because it contains no eggs, and had all the ingredients i had ready!

Can I use vegetable oil or copha instead of butter for the weet bix mixture?

We have only tested this recipe with butter, so we aren't sure whether copha or vegetable oil would work. If you try making the slice with copha or oil, please let us know how it turns out.

Made this today but it turned out quite crumbly when I cut it into slices to pull out of the pan. Tastes absolutely delicious, just very crumbly, I found the icing actually detached from the base once cut into slices, and found that I had to wait a little longer than a minute to put icing on. What made it so crumbly?

Kate again, I used the crumbs to make little chocolate balls, adding a little extra butter. After refrigerating them overnight, they turned into beautiful chocolate weet-bix balls that taste delicous. Thanks heaps!

We're glad you found a use for the crumbs!

The slice may be crumbly if the quantity of wet ingredients is insufficient, or if the slice mixture isn't firmly pressed into the pan. Do you know whether you have a 15ml or 20ml capacity tablespoon? We will amend the recipe instructions to include the reason why the mixture should be firmly pressed into the pan.

We spread the icing over the base while it is hot to help ensure that the icing adheres. Was the base still warm when you iced it?

I'm not sure what the capacity of the tablespoon is but I have a feeling that's where I went wrong, with the quantity of golden syrup.
The base was still warm when I iced it, but I had to make a smaller quantity of icing to cover the base since I did not have enough icing sugar!
I made the slice 2 days ago and it has already gone. I think I have found a favourite!

Yum, just what I was looking for!

Hi just wondering if you can freeze this slice once you have done the icing or is it only suitable to freeze without the icing?

This slice can be iced before freezing.

Absolutely delish. Weighed everything and slice was perfect - not crumbly. Never knew you could ice something hot, but it worked really well. I only had milk choc and it worked well but next time I'll try the dark. Yum.

This is a greta slice. Mum used to make it when i was young. Instead of melting chocolate she used to use milo. She also used milo for the icing. Very tasty.

This is a great recipe so yummy . The kids love crushing up the weetbix . We always have to double the mixture though otherwise it doesnt last long enough.

Absolutely loved this slice, it was so easy to make. I will definitely make this one again.

I made this slice for morning tea for friends yesterday and it was demolished within minutes! My husband loved it too! Great website - I have made a few recipes and they have all turned out perfectly.

Just made this recipe again, love it. So delicious. Thanks.

FANTASTIC. I have quite a few recipes for this type of slice but this is definitely the best. Made it exactly as written. Thank you for a great recipe.

This is a firm family favourite. I make it every couple of weeks or so when the weetbix runs out otherwise we would all be more than a little tubby. Even the fussy youngest one eats it.
