Margaret Fulton's Apricot & Almond Slice

Mum and I found this quick and easy recipe from the Woolworth's free 'Fresh' magazine.

  • 125g butter
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 tablespoon plain flour
  • 1 1/4 cups almond meal
  • 16 apricot halves
  • 1 tablespoon apricot jam
1. Preheat oven to 180*c. Grease a 22cm square cake tin with melted butter and line with baking paper.

2. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Beat in the eggs one at a time. Sift in flour. Mix almond meal with a pinch of salt. Spoon into prepared tin and spread evenly.

3. Place apricot halves on top cut side up in a 4 by 4 pattern. Press them lightly into the batter.

4. Bake for 18 minutes. While the slice is still hot, microwave jam (we had lovely home made jam) until runny and brush over. Allow the slice to cool in the pan. Cut into 8 pieces (with 2 apricot halves per slice).

I didn't make these lovely door stoppers we bought from General Trader, but they appear to be easy to sew.
