Nutty Wholemeal Slice Recipe

This is another one of my mums recipes that she would often make. It was a feature recipe at the ladies homemakers group at the church we went to. Each week a different lady would bring along a favourite recipe as well as giving out a copy of the recipe to everyone so they could make it themselves at home. I love this recipe as it is quite healthy, with hardly any sugar in it so if you are watching your weight, would be a great one to make.


1 cup wholemeal SR flour
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon powder
2 eggs
1 cup dried mixed fruit
125g butter or margarine (can use light)
1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons honey
4 tablespoons milk (can use hi-lo)
1 heaped tablespoon chopped walnuts
Extra sugar and cinnamon


Preheat oven to 170C for fan forced or 180C for normal oven.
Sift wholemeal flour, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl.
Cream butter, sugar and honey in mixing bowl with an electric beater. Beat in eggs, one at a time.
Mix in dry ingredients, alternatively with milk and lastly mix in the fruit.
Grease and line a slice tin and pour in mixture. Sprinkle top with the walnuts and the extra cinnamon and sugar.
Bake in oven for 30 - 35 minutes or until cooked.
Serve either warm or cold. Can spread a little butter on slices to serve.
