Notes

*You can use Rice Malt Syrup/Honey etc instead of Maple Syrup. **You can either use red or green apples (or whatever you have in the house) ***If you love more crumble, you can easily double the crumble ingredients. ****The apple juice with the stewed apples may seem quite watery, however will caramelise and help the apples further cook when baked. *****If you are feeling super lazy, you can use tinned apple pie apples instead πŸ˜‰

These are very moreish cookies and delicious with a cuppa tea or a cold glass of milk! Mmm!

Iced Vovo Slice

Iced Vovo + Slice = Y U M!!! This is a slice version of the classic Arnott’s Iced Vovo! This takes the coconut and strawberry flavours on my childhood favourite Iced Vovo making one GIANT Iced Vovo!!!

I have added glucose syrup to the pink icing to make it more fondant-like (like the Iced Vovo describes) and so it sets firmer – it is kind of the texture of icing + fudge. If you don’t have glucose, you can easily omit it and it will be a buttercream texture.

IcedVovoSlice-P01

Add SLICE ingredients to bowl.

IcedVovoSlice-P02

Mix 20 seconds/Speed 5.

IcedVovoSlice-P03

Pour and spread into a rectangular baking tin…

IcedVovoSlice-P04

…and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.
Cool before icing. Clean and dry bowl.

IcedVovoSlice-P12

Once cool, spread jam evenly on top of slice.

IcedVovoSlice-P05

Add icing sugar, butter, glucose, milk and pink food colouring to bowl.

IcedVovoSlice-P06

Mix 1 minute/Speed 5.

IcedVovoSlice-P07

Place icing mixture in a piping bag/ziplock bag with tip cut off…

and pipe on top of the jam, leaving the middle with only jam.

Ingredients

  • SLICE:
  • 230 grams plain flour
  • 130 grams butter
  • 130 grams milk
  • 110 grams sugar
  • 80 grams desiccated coconut
  • 2 x eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla bean paste/extract
  • TOPPING:
  • 100 grams strawberry or raspberry jam
  • 170 grams icing sugar
  • 60 grams butter
  • 20 grams glucose syrup
  • 1 teaspoon milk
  • 1/8 teaspoon pink food colouring
  • Extra desiccated coconut to top

Instructions

1

Preheat oven to 180 degrees.

2

Add SLICE ingredients to bowl. Mix 20 seconds/Speed 5.

3

Pour and spread into a rectangular baking tin and bake for 18-20 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean.

4

Cool before icing. Clean and dry bowl.

5

Once cool, spread jam evenly on top of slice.

6

Add icing sugar, butter, glucose, milk and pink food colouring to bowl. Mix 1 minute/Speed 5.

7

Place icing mixture in a piping bag/ziplock bag with tip cut off and pipe on top of the jam, leaving the middle with only jam. Roughly spread the icing down to cover any 'exposed jam spots' and top/press the icing and jam topping with extra desiccated coconut.

Notes

*Pipe the icing on so that it is evenly distributed and makes it easier to get the nice defined jam strip through the middle **You can omit the glucose syrup from the icing mixture (it will make a buttercream), however the glucose makes it firmer to sit on top of the jam (has a fudge + icing sugar texture)
