Butterscotch Slice


Today’s blog comes from Sharon & Annabel, Brisbane, Australia.


Australians do love a slice – for a gathering of kids, or to take to one of our many sporting camps we would usually make a slice of one type or another. I have a group of girls coming to stay with us at the beach, so am making this for their afternoon tea.  This is a favorite of ours, easy to make and delicious.  The three steps might sound fiddly – but each is prepared very quickly with the minimum of effort!

Butterscotch Slice

4 ½ oz butter, melted
3 oz brown sugar
5 ½ oz self rising flour
3 oz coconut

Mix the dry ingredients, add the melted butter, mix and press into an  approximate11″ x 7 ½ ” brownie tin – greased and lined with baking paper.

Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes.

1 Tbs butter melted
2 Tbs golden syrup
14 oz can condensed milk

Mix together and pour over the baked base.

Bake at 350°F for 15 minutes, allow to cool.

2 oz shortening – this makes the chocolate glossy – but you could use veg oil
1 oz milk chocolate chips – the type that melt rather than hold their shape
3 oz dark chocolate chips

Melt the shortening in the microwave, add chocolate chips and mix to melt the chocolate.  Pour over the slice, allow to cool and set.

Cut into small squares.
