Fruit & Nut Slice

Mix in a pot in under 15 minutes – you can be cleaned up with a cup of tea brewed by the time it is baked and on the kitchen bench! My fruit & nut slice is crunchy, chewy and delicious – if you are looking for a new slice recipe to try, give this one a try.


  • 125g butter
  • 1 tablespoon golden syrup
  • 1 1/4 cups flour
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 cup coconut
  • 1 cup chopped walnuts
  • 1 cup raisins
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 egg, lightly ┬ábeaten
  • Icing sugar

Melt the butter and golden syrup in a big pot. Remove from the heat.

Sift the flour and baking powder into the pot – stir in the lightly beaten egg, coconut, walnuts, raisins and sugar. Mix all of the ingredients until combined.

Press the mix into a paper lined 20 x 30cm sponge roll baking tin,

Bake at 180┬░c for 20 minutes or until golden brown.

When cold, dust with sifted icing sugar and cut into squares.

Happy baking xx

Hi, my name is Sharon, and I live in Albany on the North Shore of Auckland, New Zealand. I started my cooking blog as a hobby during my 'gap year' - 'lessonstodate' to share my family recipes and some personal accounts that come with being a mum, and grandmother - and corporate worker. My love of taking photos had taken a back-seat but recently after spending time on my own while my husband travelled, I found myself picking up my camera again. It really is good company! Looking out at the world and watching it unfold; you don't have to participate in it, just watch and wonder. Sharon
