If you are needing something for morning or afternoon tea or a lunchbox treat, here is a quick and easy slice recipe that is lovely and moist.
Lemon Coconut Slice
1 cup of self raising flour
1 cup dessicated coconut
3/4 cup sugar
1/2 cup milk
125g melted butter
1 cup icing sugar
1 teaspoon soft butter
Mix dry ingredients in a bowl. Add milk and lightly beaten eggs and mix well. Add melted butter and half of the rind from the lemon.
Put mixture into a lined lamington size tray. Bake at 190deg for about 20 minutes or until golden on top.
While slice is baking sift icing sugar into a bowl, add the soft teaspoon of butter, the rest of the lemon rind and enough lemon juice to make a smooth but slightly stiff icing paste. Ice the slice while warm allowing the icing to melt over the top of the slice.
Cut, eat and enjoy.
I've just noticed what an odd assortment of kitchen storage containers I have now that they are lined up in the photo. Some of them I've had since I was first married. They still do the job beautifully. :)
Bye for now,
