    Default Slice/traybake recipes please! (for lunchboxes)

    I'd love your recipes for Kiwi style tray bakes and slices that will chop up well for pack ups. Preferably easy with common/cheap ingredients- we're trying to eliminate lunch box bars from the grocery shop as with 2 kids and 1 adult taking pack ups daily it is a significant cost. They love banana cake etc.

    I have made this banana cake recipe in a round tin and in a loaf tin and it's very lovely and moist, keeps for a few days in a sealed conatiner and is cheap to make!

    Yummy.......

    I almost typed out a recipe but I found one similar enough online.

    Here is a link for granola bars the way I make them.

    "granola" bar is what americans call muesli bars.

    Here is another method with sweetened condensed milk if you prefer.

    Both of these methods are good. I made some plain oatmeal bars just yesterday. And they are DELICIOUS!!!

    Oooh they look really good, do they keep well in a container in the cupboard or best for the fridge?

    Try something different - tablet (and make sure you've got a good dental plan )

    Or carrot cake (with soft cheese frosted icing)

    Or oatmeal cookies (OH likes these)

    Or make mini Eccles cakes (OH eats most of these when I make them)

    That'll keep you going for a bit - the cookies and Eccles cakes aren't traybakes, but they're dead easy

    I keep them in a tin on the counter like cookies but they go really fast here so it isn't ever an issue.



    I will be honest that I have no idea what a "tray bake" is? I assumed it meant on a flat cookie sheet but now I am not so sure.

    And a "slice" is just a cake, right?

    Tray bake is just a cake baked in a square/rectangular tray so it's easy to slice into even pieces- at least that's my understanding of it!

    Parsley- I am NOT making tablet; tablet is the most sickly-sweet DELICIOUS stuff and I know I'll have the will power of a peanut if I make it! But will try the carrot cake recipe and the others- thanks! Most carrot cake here has the 'wrong' sort of icing on it- cream cheese icing is how we like it so will make that one.

    Grumpy Goat- I love the look of the granola bars but I fear my littlest will wrinkle her nose at them but I think I'll give them a shot anyway- thanks!

    Judging by what came out of my oven last night (before the recipes on here appeared) I add that the recipe will need to be idiot-proof. I iced it in lemon icing (in the hope that that would cover a multitude of sins) and wrapped a weeks worth anyway- if their lunch boxes come back with the slices still in them tonight the dog may be in luck.
