A lovely, moist and slightly chewy slice. It is ridiculously easy to make, it is literally a melt, mix and bake type recipe. The original recipe uses Milo powder, which I’m sure will taste delicious. However, I still had some Malted Milk drink powder left after making the (decadent) Chocolate Caramel Biscuit Slice.
3/4 cup plain flour
3/4 cup self-raising flour
1 cup malted milk powder or Milo or Ovaltine powder
2/3 cup shredded coconut
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon vanilla
2 eggs, lightly beaten
125g unsalted butter, melted
1 packet (200g) milk chocolate bits
Preheat the oven to 180ºC. Line a slice tin (18cm x 28cm) with baking paper.
In a mixing bowl, add plain and self-raising flours, malted milk powder, coconut, brown sugar and vanilla. Mix well.
Add eggs and butter. Stir mixture until well combined. Then add the chocolate bits, and stir a couple times more.
Spoon mixture into the prepared slice tin. Bake for 15 to 20 minutes, or until the top is lightly browned and a skewer inserted in the centre comes out clean.
Allow the slice to cool in the tin before removing it to cut into squares or fingers.
