Elaine's Oat Slice
This recipe comes from an extremely ratty cook book I own, The Beachport pony club family favourites.
It's from the eighties I guess, and I picked it up in reasonable condition from a garage sale eons ago. It's been well used in that time and hasn't fared well. I still make recipes from it, like this oat slice.
To be honest, its the first time I've made this particular slice. I usually make a chocolate slice from this book, everyone loves it. With the second week of school about to begin, I got my bake on because the cupboard was bare. It had all the ingredients for this one, so I went with it.
The recipe was supplied by Elaine Marshall. It's a good'un.
120 grams butter
2 cups rolled oats
1 dessertspoon golden syrup
1 small cup coconut
1 small cup sugar
Melt butter, golden syrup and sugar in a saucepan. Combine dry ingredients in a bowl and pour in the melted butter mix.
Stir well until combined.
Spoon mixture into a greased and lined slice tray, and smooth out.
Bake at 170 degrees for 25-30 minutes.
Slice into squares when still warm.
I let it cool in the tin, then melted 100 grams of chocolate in the microwave. I then drizzled the melted chocolate over the top of the cut slice.
