highland slice

Lots of requests for this old fashioned Slice recipe. Especially from farmers market customers having withdrawals. It's so very quick & simple to make that I'm almost too embarrassed to post it. But you've been so patient. And persistent :-)  So here it is. The terrific little quickie slice everyone adores.  Just as good Iced or un-iced. Keeps great in the fridge or pantry in a sealed tupperware - lasting a few weeks if cut into fudge size pieces with some self control.

Ingredients - 125 grams butter, 1 tin Nestle Condensed Milk, 1 cup Aussie Sultanas, 250gram packet of Arnott's Nice Biscuits (crushed in whizzer/processor)

Method - Melt butter in a saucepan over low heat, remove from heat to cool a little.

Add the condensed milk & beat in well with hand held mixer.

Stir in the sultanas & crushed biscuits with a wooden spoon. Pour into 23 x 18 x 3 cm tin. Spread & smooth flat with the back of a metal tablespoon. I normally do a double batch in larger lamington size tin. Bake at 160 degrees C for 40-45 minutes. Best your oven isn't too hot & don't let it go really brown. Cool completely in tin.

If your heart desires, drizzle with basic icing of your choice. Our Poppy Ron uses chocolate. I always use citrus icing (see previous poppyseed cake recipe) with a good squeeze of lemon, lime or orange juice into the icing sugar & some finely zested rind. But you know me & citrus!

Enjoy the last weekend of Summer my Farm Kitchen friends. Let's hope it starts cooling down soon.  And the citrus ripens quickly. x
