ANZAC Slice (Lest we forget) – Recipe

So I made this today in honour of ANZAC day and as usual: modified it .. recipes exist for that reason, no? *grin* This is one of those “cannot go wrong” recipes so a big time fave of mine! It’s the sort of thing the kids can make. ANYONE can make .. and it wows people every time. Who can say no to that concept?

Here’s how you do it:

Pre heat your oven to 180deg C.

Grease a large roasting pan (flat based) with lashings of butter, set aside.

In a large bowl mix:

6c rolled oats (I use a mix of whole grain and kibbled ie the ones some people call “quick cook”)
3c coconut (plain old dessicated)
2c white sugar
1T vanilla essence
2T golden syrup (USA / CA – your best bet is to use Maple syrup or dark corn syrup)
250g butter – unsalted, ideally but doesn’t really matter..

I told ya before – I like simple recipes! Use what you have, where possible! ie salted is fine!

Chuck all ingreds in a bowl, incl melted butter and vanilla ess. Get in there, hands and all.. combine everything really well. This is fun .. get to it!

Pour into the pre-greased dish and flatten using a spatula. You want a perfectly flat slice at this point.

Put in the oven and cook for 10 mins.
Turn the heat down to 150 deg for a further 10 mins.
The slice is ready when the edges are crispy (you kinda think “is it burning”) and the middle no longer wobbles when you shake the dish ..

Remove from oven and leave to cool before cutting..

Oh and if you stuff this up (and it somehow can happen) simply crumble it up, put in a container and pull out when you want a nice simple apple or fruit crumble topping!
