Gluten-free and Egg-free Chocolate Slice

Here’s a chocolate slice recipe that I always fall back on when I need to bring a plate of goodies to an event.

Ingredients

300 g gluten-free plain flour

180 g dessicated coconut

225 g sugar

24 g cocoa

370 g butter

1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Method

  1. Mix the flour, coconut, sugar and cocoa together in a large bowl.
  2. Melt the butter and vanilla together and add to the dry ingredients.
  3. Press into a 30 x 23 cm baking tin.
  4. Bake at 160 C fan-forced (180 C/350 F conventional oven) for 20 minutes.
  5. Allow to cool then ice with chocolate icing and sprinkle with coconut.
  6. Refrigerate until cold then cut up into squares.

Icing: Sift 280 g gluten-free icing mixture (or use pure icing sugar) and 48 g cocoa into a bowl. Add 60 g of melted butter and 60 ml of hot water and stir until well mixed.

Chocolate Caramel Slice Gluten-free Egg-free


I honestly thought that everyone knew how to make this slice seeing as the recipe is on the side of the condensed milk tin. However, every time I make it, people ask me for the recipe. The original recipe is not gluten-free, but using gluten-free flour works well. I have changed the chocolate icing recipe, as the one I use makes it easier to cut. I’ve also converted cup measurements to mass so that it is quick and easy to put together. The recipe below is for a double batch. With the colder than usual August weather in Brisbane everyone seems to be hungry and we have regular visitors who don’t mind a piece or two. Just halve the recipe if you don’t want so much!

Ingredients and Method

300 g gluten-free self-raising flour

340 g brown sugar

160 g coconut

250 g melted butter

Combine these four ingredients together and mix. Place into a large oven tray (I used one that is 35 cm x 25 cm x 6 cm). Bake at 160 C fan-forced or 180 C/350 F conventional oven for 10 minutes.

2 cans of sweetened condensed milk (each 395 g)

40 g butter

100 g golden syrup

Combine the condensed milk, butter and golden syrup in a large saucepan. Stir over medium heat until boiling then continue to simmer whilst stirring constantly for 5 minutes. Take care as the mixture is very hot and may ‘spit’ as air bubbles come to the surface. Pour over the base and cook for a further 10 minutes in the oven. (Keep the saucepan aside for scraping out later – yum!)

300 g chocolate

60 g butter

70 ml water

Combine the chocolate, butter and water in a heat proof bowl and place over a saucepan of simmering water. Stir until the chocolate is melted and the mixture is well combined. Pour over the slice and refrigerate until set. Use a warm knife to cut into pieces. This slice keeps well in the fridge – if you can keep everyone away from it long enough!
