When Following Our Jelly Recipe: 

Using Aeroplane Jelly's own brand of Jelly to make this recipe, simply follow the instructions on the back of the pack and add the extra gelatine to it as per the recipe instructions below.  You’ll be working with two sets of jelly in this recipe: gelatine power that you’ll mix with your condensed milk, and Aeroplane Original Strawberry Flavour Jelly for your jelly layer topping. The topping jelly is made per the back of pack instructions, but with 100ml less water – remember this when following our original Strawberry Jelly Slice recipe!

Tips for Cutting Even Slices:

a) Line the baking tin with baking paper

When preparing your slices, use a lightly greased and then lined baking tin. The baking paper will stay in place if you grease the tin before putting the crushed biscuit base inside. 

b) Leave your jelly slice overnight before you cut it

This isn't always feasible, but if you can leave your slice overnight before cutting it, you'll notice that the pieces are much easier to cut into. Always wait at least a few hours (minimum) before cutting your base to prevent breaking and crumbling.

c) Choose the correct type of knife

To begin with, ensure that your knives are sharp! It's impossible to neatly cut a slice with a blunt knife, so always ensure your knives are sharp for clean, seamless slices. The sort of slice you're making will determine the sort of knife you use. A large flat edged knife works well on slices that require a very sharp blade. The slice must be firm and free of a hard chocolate topping. A lemon coconut or ANZAC slice are examples of things that would go well with this kind of knife.
