This is a slice recipe I found in an old magazine. I made this for Mother’s Day. My mum reminded me that she used to make this all the time, but with peanuts, which is probably why I can’t remember as I’m not a fan of peanuts in desserts.
This slice is very sweet (anything that involved a can of condensed milk is going to be sweet), but quite moorish nevertheless. And it got gobbled up before I got a chance to take a picture.
100g butter, melted
1 tsp vanilla essence
1/3 cup firmly packed brown sugar
1 cup plain flour
3/4 tsp baking powder
200g milk cooking chocolate
100g slivered almonds
395g can sweetened condensed milk
- Preheat oven to 180°C (360°F). Grease and line a 26cm x 16cm lamington pan
- Combine butter, vanilla and brown sugar in a bowl, sift flour and baking powder and mix with butter mixture.
- Press the mixture into the pan with your fingertips. Bake for 12 minutes or until golden. Let cool for 5 minutes.
- Roughly chop the chocolate. Sprinkle chocolate and almonds evenly over the cooked base.
- Drizzle condensed milk evenly over chocolate and almonds.
- Bake for 18 – 20 minutes or until golden. Cool completely and cut into squares.
