Lou’s Macadamia and Wattleseed Slice

Lynton Tapp If you’re looking for a sweet treat for a special get together or a ladies afternoon tea, why not give this decicious recipe a try from the talented Lynton Tapp, Masterchef 2013 Runner-Up. Makes about 24 squares.

  • Base:
  • 155gm plain flour
  • 155gm coconut
  • 40gm roasted wattle seed
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 145gm castor sugar
  • 160gm butter
  • Filling:
  • 150gm macadamia nuts roughly shopped, some left whole
  • 150gm unsalted butter
  • 150gm brown sugar
  • 600ml condensed milk
  • 3 tablespoon of golden syrup
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Topping:
  • 400gm milk chocolate – Cadbury dairy milk is a classic!

 

1) Preheat oven to 180 degrees. 2) Place all ingredients for the base in a bowl and mix until well combined. 3) Press mixture firmly into a baking tray (22cm x 32cm) lined with baking paper. 4) Bake for 10-12minutes. It should be light golden. 5) Place all ingredients for the filling except for the macadamia nuts in a saucepan and stir over a gentle heat. 6) Continue to stir until all the brown sugar is dissolved. Continue to cook caramel for 8-10 minutes being careful not to let the caramel burn. 7) Scatter the macadamias over the cooked base before pouring the caramel filling evenly over the base. 8) Place the tray back in the oven for a further 10 minutes to cook the caramel. Allow them to cool completely. 8) To finish slice, heat chocolate in a bowl over a saucepan of water until it has melted. It is also really quick and easy to heat chocolate in the microwave but watch closely as it will burn quickly. 9) Spread the melted chocolate over the caramel being sure to cover all sections of the slice evenly. 10) Place in the fridge to set the chocolate. Once the chocolate is hard, you can cut into squares.
