I’m starting to slow down now, the wheels are starting to fall off a little I think! I’m just getting too big and tired – eight weeks to go until this baby arrives seems like a loooooong time at this point! So, I missed our Flashback Friday post this week and nothing terribly exciting to share today I’m afraid!
My oven has been fixed, yay, and it was just slightly cooler here so Lex and I decided to make our super easy, super yum, favourite chocolate slice. I’ve been inspired to try to get back to some ‘Sunday Baking’ after following one of my ‘Blog With Pip’ classmates, “I Give You the Verbs” yummy Sunday Baking treats, but an easy slice was about all I could summon up the effort for today.
This is the recipe, handed down to me from my mum, if anybody is interested. It is super easy, super quick and requires very few ingredients! I made this quite a bit while we were travelling on our trip in the camper – only a bowl, spatula and slice tin required!
1 cup of sugar, 1 cup of coconut, 1 cup of self raising flour, 2 tablespoons of cocoa.
Melt 125grams of butter, pour over dry ingredients, plus 1 egg well beaten with 1 teaspoon of vanilla.
Mix well. Press into Glad Bake lined slice tin and bake at 200degrees for 20mins (soft) or 25mins (crisp).
For a quick and easy icing option spread with Nestle Choc Melts while hot out of the oven and spread with a knife.
And that’s it! Half of our slice is gone already – pretty much guaranteed to always taste delicious! Did you do any baking today? Anybody willing to share an easy slice recipe with me?
