This week, with Halloween nearly upon us Roy decided we had better find something appropriately goulish for the occasion. Halloween is not a traditional Australian holiday, and Roy doesn't celebrate it, but knows some of the children are planning to. The question was what to cook. I told Roy about a slice his Grandma used to make for a dessert treat when I was little which my brother had called 'Slime Slice'. It is easy to make, tasty and with its orange coloured 'slime' Roy thought it would be perfect. So this week, Roy Creates Halloween Slime Slice.
You Will Need:
- 120 grams of margarine
- 1/2 a cup of sugar
- 1 cup of self raising flour
- 3/4 of a cup of plain flour
- 1 egg
- 1 large tin of apricot nectar
- 3 tablespoons of custard powder
- 3 tablespoons of cornflour
- 1 small cup of castor sugar
- Coconut to taste
- Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius and line a lamington or slice tin with baking paper
- Cream the margarine and sugar. You can do this with a wooden spoon, just make sure the margarine is soft
- Sift the plain and self raising flours together and mix into the creamed margarine and sugar.
- Add the egg and mix.
- Press the mix into the bottom of the prepared tin and bake for 15 minutes or until it is browned.
- When the base is cooked, put the apricot nectar, custard powder, cornflour and sugar into a saucepan and bring to the boil. Cook the mix until it is thickened.
- Pour the apricot mix over the base you have cooked and spread it out evenly. You need to pour the hot apricot mix over the hot base - don't let either get cool before you do.
- Sprinkle coconut over the top of the slice and put the slice aside in the fridge until it is cold and set.
- Cut into squares and enjoy
- If you like, decorate with drowning jelly babies, false teeth, snakes and other 'scary things' for Halloween!
