Today I am sharing two slice recipes that I have recently baked. They are both easy to make, taste delicious and freeze well. If you cut them into squares prior to freezing your life is even easier next time you need something sweet.
Recipe from CWA Classics.
- 1 cup self-raising flour
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg or cloves
- 60 g softened butter or margarine
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 1 banana mashed
- 1 egg
- 1/4 cup milk
- 1/4 cup chopped walnuts
- 1 tablespoon butter melted
- 1 teaspoon hot water
- lemon juice to taste
- icing sugar
Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease a 15-cm x 25-cm slice tin. (I like to line tin with baking paper)
Sift flour and spices into a bowl. In a separate bowl, cream butter and sugar, then add the mashed banana and beat for 2 minutes. Add the egg and beat well. Mix in the milk and flour mixture alternately. Stir in the walnuts. Put into prepared tin and bake for 25-30 minutes.
To make the icing, combine the butter with the water and lemon juice and add sufficient sifted icing sugar to achieve the desired consistency.
While the slice is still warm, spread with lemon icing and cut into squares.
- I found it easier to cut the slice into squares once it had cooled.
Do you cook slices?
Do they remind of cake stalls or visits to elderly relatives?
I hope you enjoy these two!
