This one cup fruit slice is perhaps the easiest thing I've ever made. Miss Two and I took less than ten minutes to make it together. My friend Jacquij from the Motherhood Unmasked group shared the recipe with us all at our last catch up.
1 cup of diced apricot, sultanas, shredded coconut and wholemeal flour.
1/2 cup of brown sugar.
How to make
Mix to combine and press into a lined slice tray. Firstly, I butter the tin and cover with baking paper then I press mixture into slice tin evenly.
Bake for 25 minutes on 180 degrees.
Cool in tin for 20 minutes and then slice into squares.
Variations to recipe
I used 1 cup of cranberries along with the rest of the ingredients along with a little more brown sugar as they are Miss Two's favourite. You could also use 1/4 cup of golden syrup mixed with 1/4 cup of boiling water instead of brown sugar. You could also add any of the following- muesli, dates, seeds, chocolate chips to the mix just add water if to dry and it won't combine. l would love to hear what you think. This is a great recipe for play group morning teas, lunchtime treats or for car trips. It's dense but chewing and it doesn't create a lot of crumbs. I enjoyed some with a cup of Chai yesterday afternoon while Miss Two had a sleep. I think this slice is going to be a favourite for child friendly play dates and outings.
I'd love to know what you think when you make it.
I'm attempting to get organised for Poppy's bedroom makeover tomorrow afternoon. A new room set up, single bed, her double bed doona cover and all her homemade toys lined up in a row. I have pulled out all the vintage bedlinen and I've set aside three days next week to create new double bed doona covers and bedlinen for Miss Two. I'll be busy sewing at Nana's while Miss Two is looked after in the sunroom. I'm excited about creating something beautiful, quirky and cute for my little girl. I aim to do three reversible doona covers, a single bed quilt and a couple of vintage pillowcases. I'll keep a photo journal of all the crafty goodness as everything else is on hold til the bedlinen is done.
Have a great weekend everyone.
