Now if this doesn’t scream Nana, I don’t know what does! This slice reminds me so much of my childhood. Do you remember it?

 

You'll Need

Base

  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2/3 cup desiccated coconut
  • 2/3 cup self raising flour
  • 85g butter, melted
Lemon layer 

  • 400g can condensed milk
  • 2 lemons, juiced
  • 2 tsp gelatine dissolved in ¾ cup boiling water
Topping 

  • 1 pkt strawberry jelly crystals
Method

Pre-heat oven to 160C. Line a 25 x 15cm slice tin with baking paper. Allow the paper to come out over the sides of the tin, so you have handles to lift the slice out when it has set.

Make up the jelly following the packet instructions and allow to cool at room temperature.

For the base, mix together the brown sugar, coconut and flour, removing any lumps. Add the melted butter and stir well to combine.
Press into base of the slice tin.
Bake in the oven for 10 minutes or until a pale golden colour. Allow to cool.
For the lemon layer, blend all ingredients and spread over biscuit layer. Refrigerate for 1 hour or until set.

Gently and slowly pour the jelly over the slice. You don’t need to use it all, it just depends on how thick you want your jelly layer. Chill until set, cut and serve.
