My family has a thing for slices, especially my mum and brother (Dad insists he likes anything I bake). Although they both enjoyed the cupcakes (which are now all gone) and the lemon cordial, slices are definitely their favourite. This slice is a variation on my mums ginger slice, specially requested by my brother.
Here’s the recipe.
3/4 cup brown sugar
2 tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 cup coconut
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup plain white flour
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons ground ginger
rind from 2 lemons
Heat oven to 180ºC
Melt the butter, brown sugar and golden syrup in a large pot
Remove from the heat and stir in the rest of the ingredients until mixed
Press into a slice tin, about 20cm by 30cm
Bake for 15-20 minutes, until golden
Cool, then ice
Melt 2 tablespoons of butter in a bowl
Using a hand whisk, whisk in about 1 cup of icing sugar
Add lemon juice to your taste
Cut into squares and enjoy!
