Expert Tips and FAQs
This slice MUST be completely cold before slicing. I refrigerate it for at least 2 hours before cutting. This allows the butter to seize and it helps to keep the slice together. For this purpose it is best stored in the fridge.
Either slice up and pop in the fridge for the week ahead, or freeze in portions ready for lunchboxes. To do that: freeze until completely solid on a baking tray before transferring to a container or a ziplock bag. It will defrost easily in the lunchbox if you put it in frozen in the morning, even with an ice pack. You can use parchment or baking paper between layers in the fridge.
"Just wanted you to know that your Cornflake Honey Slice took the Blue Ribbon in today's Iowa State Fair "Foods Made With Honey" Honey Bar class contest. The "Lamington Tin" had me going only to find out today that a Lamington Tin is a 9 x 13 x 2 baking pan. I ended up using a 8 inch by 8 inch by 2 inch baking pan and baked for 25 minutes. They came out nicely "chewey" but I had to freeze them to sharply cut them with a serrated knife. Judge raved over the flavor and texture. Not bad for the first time I made your Cornflake Honey Slice recipe. Thanks - Ron Marr, Waukee (Des Moines), Iowa "
