The recipes

Following yesterday's mammoth post, here are the recipes. Beth has kindly pointed out that "1/4 butter" could be 1/4 pound butter, ie, half a 250g block, which makes perfect sense and also brings the butter contents of both slices into line. She also pointed out that 10 oz is 300g - which would be a ludicrous amount to add to the caramel layer. On closer inspection of the recipe, it actually says 1 oz. Phew!

Granny's Slice - A

Base
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 butter or marg {let's assume it's 125g}
1 cup SR flour
1 cup coconut

Sift brown sugar {sift sugar, Granny??}, cinnamon and flour. Add coconut. Melt shortening, add to dry ingredients. Press into greased 11x9 tin. Bake 12 min in moderate oven {that's 180 Celsius}.

Caramel
1 tin condensed milk
1 oz butter
2 tab. golden syrup

Melt butter and condensed milk and syrup. Combine well, spread evenly over base. Replace in oven until it changes colour - about 20min. Cool. {Granny underlined that so it must be important.}

Icing
3 oz copha
3 level tab. cocoa
Few drops vanilla (I use lemon juice sometimes) {quoted from book, not me...}
3 level tab. icing sugar

Melt copha (slowly). Remove from heat. Add to sifted icing sugar and cocoa. Add vanilla/lemon juice. Pour over caramel. Leave to set.


Granny's Slice - B

1 cup SR flour
1 cup desiccated coconut
1 cup firmly packed br. sugar
125g butter, melted

Grease 20cm x 30cm lamington pan. Combine sifted flour, coconut and sugar in a bowl. Add butter, stir until combined. Press mixture over base of prep. pan. Bake in mod oven 15 min or until browned lightly. Pour hot caramel filling over hot base, return to oven about 8min, cool. Spread warm choc topping over caramel filling. Stand at room temp until set.


Caramel filling
400g can sweetened condensed milk
30g butter
2 tab. golden syrup

Combine all ingred. in pan, stir over low heat until just combined.

Chocolate topping
125g dark chocolate, chopped
30g butter

Combine choc and butter in pan. Stir over low heat until smooth. (Not suitable to freeze)
