Marshmallow Apricot Slice Recipe

  • 90g butterimg_6178
  • 1/4 cup raw sugar
  • 1 cup wholemeal plain flour
  • 125g dried apricots
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3/4 water
  • 1 sachet gelatine (1 dessert spoon)

Base

  1. Line a 18cm x 28cm tray with greaseproof paper
  2. Cream butter and sugar
  3. Add flour and mix well
  4. Press the mix evenly into the tray
  5. Bake in at 180’C for 15 minutes

Apricots

  • Put apricots and water into a saucepan
  • Cook on a low heat for about 10 minutes, until the apricots soft
  • Put the apricots in a blender or press them through a sieve
  • Spoon the apricot mix onto the slice base then spread it evenly

Marshmallow and to finish

  1. There is a knack to making marshmallow
  2. Boil sugar, water and gelatine for a few minutes
  3. As the mix cools, whisk occasionally & watch carefully
  4. Suddenly it starts to set, before it sets whip it until it thickens and goes white
  5. Act quickly as you spoon and spread the marshmallow onto the slice
  6. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes

I have loved this slice since I was a child. It is my favourite slice. I used to just eat the marshmallow but now I love it all and think its a perfect combination.
