apple & currant slice

I'm back and blogging again! Yay! Everything is as normal as it can be...
Spike's going to the vets every 3 days for an antibiotic injection because of a chest infection, but he's almost back to his feisty self, so I'm very happy about that!

So what do I have for you today? Ahh yes. I have a recipe for a healthy scrummy yummy apple and currant slice that even the kids will love! Very easy to make and even easier to eat! lol Enjoy!!

Apple and currant slice

  • 2 cups plain flour
  • 1 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/2 cup icing sugar
  • 185g butter, chilled, cubed
  • 1 egg
  • 450g can apple pie fruit
  • 1/3 cup currants
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
Directions:
  1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 3cm deep, 24cm x 29.5cm (base) lamington pan.
  2. Process flours, icing sugar and butter to resemble breadcrumbs. Add egg. Process until dough comes together. Turn onto a floured surface. Knead lightly.
  3. Press two-thirds of dough into prepared pan. Refrigerate. Wrap remaining dough in plastic wrap. Place into freezer until firm.
  4. Spread apple over dough base. Sprinkle with currants, brown sugar and cinnamon. Grate frozen dough over top. Bake for 40 minutes, or until firm to the touch.
  5. Cool in pan. Cut into squares to serve.
