I've had a few requests for the Date Slice that we had at morning tea on the yarn tour.
This is soooo EASY and quite a nostalgic recipe for me too. It was given to me by a fellow classmate at school, we were about 16 yrs old, and that's what she said to me,
"you'll love it and it's sooooo EASY"
so without further ado....
Sharon Ellis' Date Slice Recipe
1 cup of Self Raising flour
1 cup of coconut
1 cup of chopped dates
1/2 cup sugar
2 tabs of milk
Pre-heat oven to moderate 180C
Mix all the dry ingredients
Melt the butter and add the milk to it
Mix the wet into the dry and spoon and press into a slice tin.
Bake for about 20-25mins. You'll know when it's ready.
My tin of choice is a long rectangular fluted edge tin with loose bottom.
Always slips right out and is easy to cut into fingers.
I've been baking this for over 30 years now and I think and smile of Sharon whenever I do.
Lots of love x
