Anzac fruit slice

Todays baking treats for this weeks lunches comes from one of my favourite cookies and a method that my mother in law uses.
Its a quick easy slice that can be whipped up in minutes and popped in the oven till toasty brown.
It contains fruit and you can choose what you would like to add, today I added currants and sultanas although it is super tasty with dried apricot as well.

Ingredients:
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1 cup cocconut
3/4 cup sugar
3/4 cup of dried fruit, such as currants, sultanas, apricots etc.. add whatever you have
160g butter
3 tablespoons golden syrup
1/2 tsp bicarb soda
1 tbl boiling water

Method:

  • preheat oven to 180 degrees.
  • line a slice tray (approx 26 x 17cm) with baking paper.
  • mix oats, flour, cocconut, sugar and dried fruit in a bowl. 
  • in a saucepan melt butter and golden syrup till disolved. 
  • Boil water and in a teacup add the 1tbl boiling water and the 1/2tsp bicarb soda.
  • Add this to the butter mix and then add to the bowl of dry ingredients.
  • Mix together then press firmly into the baking tray.  
  • Bake for around 30-35 minutes until the slice is golden brown.
  • Remove from oven and let cool in tray until ready to cut up and eat.
