This slice is an absolute favourite at my workplace at the moment and in a very short time I’ve been asked to make it several times by those who have sampled it. It is a very simple recipe that is sure to be a crowd pleaser!
1/2 cup White Sugar
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
2 cups white flour
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 tin condensed milk
75 grams butter
2 tablespoons Golden Syrup
1/4 - 1/2 each cup each, *peanuts, cashews, slithered almonds, walnuts roughly chopped
*You can use whatever nuts you prefer/have on hand
Pre-heat your oven to 180°C and line a 25cm x 15cm slice tin with baking paper.
Cream butter and sugar, then add in vanilla. Sift in the flour and baking powder and gently mix until combined.
Press mixture evenly into your baking paper lined tin.
Flash bake in the oven for 10 minutes, remove and set aside.
At this stage you will need to make your caramel. To make the caramel melt together the condensed milk, golden syrup and butter in the microwave, I gave mine four zaps of 40 seconds each, stirring between each interval. Your caramel is ready when it is golden and thickened.
Pour the caramel over the base you have created in your slice tin.
Cover with nuts, pressing them very gently, just into the caramel.
Bake in your pre-heated oven for 10-15 minutes.
Remove from the oven when the nuts are golden/beginning to brown.
Leave in the tin to cool completely before slicing into squares.
You can decorate by drizzling melted chocolate over it or serve as is.
