Nutty Orange Slice
« on: March 01, 2012, 12:19:17 pm »
Nutty Orange Slice

Slice Ingredients:
150g Nuttelex
3 tbsp orange juice
3 tsp orange rind
6 Weetbix
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup brown sugar
1/2 cup LSA
1/2 cup slivered almonds

Method:
1. Preheat oven to 180 degrees Celcius. Line a lightly greased, shallow 18cm x 28cm tin with baking paper, making sure the paper comes above each side. This will allow you to remove the slice from the pan more easily.
2. Break the Weetbix in half and put in TM. Crumble the Weetbix for 5 seconds on speed 4, or until desired consistency.
3. Add orange rind, flour, sugar, LSA and almonds. Mix for 15 seconds on speed 4. Remove from TM and set aside.
4. Add Nuttelex and orange juice to TM and mix for 2-3 minutes at 60 degrees on speed 1, or until Nuttelex has melted. Add Weetbix mixture back to TM and use spatula to roughly incorporate wet and dry mixtures, before replacing TM lid and mixing on speed 3 for 1 minute or until well combined.
5. Press mixture firmly and evenly into prepared tin, and then use a fork to roughen the surface. Put slice aside and wash TM.

Glaze Ingredients:    
1 egg white
2 tsp grated orange rind
1 cup icing sugar

Method:
1. Put all ingredients in TM and mix for 20 seconds on speed 4 or until smooth.
2. Pour glaze evenly over slice and then bake for 30 minutes or until golden.
3. Allow slice to cool completely before cutting, otherwise the glaze will crack and break.


Notes

The slice will keep for about one week in an airtight container.

I use Nuttelex because it is healthier and adds a little more nutty flavour. You can replace it with butter if you want to.

Variations

You can replace the plain Weetbix with Multigrain Weetbix or Oatbrits for something a little different. My mum likes me to make this with Oatbrits because the flavour of oats goes nicely with the nuts.

You could use desiccated coconut instead of LSA.

You could replace the almonds with macadamias, or any other nut you think would go nicely with orange.

Sounds a great little recipe Amy.  The last 2 ingredients - I take it they are a 1/2 cup of each?

What is Nuttelex?   I've never heard of it and don't know if we have something similar here in the U.S.

A Google search gave me a bunch of conflicting answers.  Apparently it is an Australian product not available elsewhere except in parts of SE Asia.

Oh dear, yes judydawn, they are 1/2 cup each. I will change that now. Thank you! :-)

Sorry andie, I did wonder how many people would be familiar with Nuttelex, but I left it in the recipe because it is a really worthwhile product if you can get it. Otherwise you can just use butter. Or you may have a product in the U.S. that is similar to Nuttelex?
