I had a friend stay over at the weekend and she gave me this gorgeous bunch of flowers, my kitchen smells so lovely. I just adore having flowers in my kitchen. Thanks Marja!
I came across these wonderful looking Afternoon Tea Slices at Vi’s Pantry (a forum I belong to), Gail posted the recipe and pics. I immediately was drawn to them and couldn’t wait to try them out. They are a different take on Anzac Biscuits and are absolutely more-ish and one slice just won’t be enough! They are the perfect snack! Thanks Gail for sharing this great recipe.
Afternoon Tea Slices
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup plain flour
1/2 cup caster sugar
3/4 cup desiccated coconut
2 tblsp golden syrup
1/2 tsp bicarb of soda
1 tblsp hot water
300g dark chocolate, melted ( I used milk chocolate)
Preheat oven to 160c. Combine oats, flour, sugar and coconut in a bowl. Place golden syrup and butter in a saucepan over low heat and cook until melted. Mix the bicarb with the water, add to golden syrup mixture and stir to combine. Add to oat mixture and mix well. Press the mixture into a lightly greased 20cm x 30cm cake tin lined with baking paper. Bake for 20 mins or until golden. Allow to cool in tin. Pour over the melted chocolate and refrigerate until set. Cut into squares.
