Caramel Slice

Another of those family recipes that I can date back quite sometime. This certainly was used in the family as early as the early 1960s. It was our (my brother and I) childhood favourite.

Base:

1/2 cup butter
1 cup SR flour
3/4 cup brown sugar
pinch of salt
1 egg

Cream butter and sugar. Add egg, then flour and salt.

Cook in greased slice tin in moderate oven until golden.

Topping:

1 cup brown sugar
1 tablespoon butter
1/4 cup milk
about 4 tablespoons icing sugar

Stir continuously over low heat until boiling. Boil 3 minites without stirring. Cool then beat in the sifted icing sugar. Pour topping over base, and allow to set.

  1. Oh, wow, this sounds simple and delicious - my kind of treat. Out of curiosity, what are the dimensions of a slice tin? I am wondering if I have the equipment for this.
