It was great having my visitor recently, so I could have fun baking again. Here’s another recipe from my Mum-in-law, that’s quick and easy to make.
2 cups cake flour
2 tspn baking powder
125g butter or margarine
1/4 cup sugar
Cream the butter and sugar together. Add the egg and flour. Knead together into a dough. Press into two baking tins. (See photo 2 above) Spread with apricot jam. Or any jam. I used strawberry here, as I didn’t have any apricot.
125g melted butter or margarine
3/4 cup sugar
1 cup oats
1 well beaten egg
1 tspn almond essence
Just add all the ingredients to the melted butter and mix well. Pour on top of the dough base. (See photo 3 above)
Tip: I use less sugar and it turns out fine.
Bake at 180 C for about 20 minutes, till the top is golden brown.
My mother had a delicious almond slice recipe, but it uses ground almonds, which are expensive and hard to find here, so I just make this recipe instead.
Many people seem to be allergic to almonds, or almond essence. My one friend is. But no worries. All the more for me!
