Recipe – Julie’s Apricot Slice

Rose made this for us when we visited the Booms in their new home (see post coming soon!) to check out their newly installed Homewood Stove. The slice is delicious – quite spongy and the lemon icing gives it a bit of zing.

1 cup chopped apricots
1 cup milk
110 g butter
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
¾ cup coconut
½ cup flour
½ cup self-raising flour

Soak apricots in milk for one hour. Cream together butter and sugar and beat in eggs. Add coconut, flours and soaked apricots and mix all together. Pour into a greased baking and tray.
Bake for 20 minutes at 180 C. Ice with lemon icing (Edmonds Cookery Book) and sprinkle more coconut over the top.
