Picture of Great Gran's Tan Slice - a Delicable Sweet Treat!

Tan slice brings back memories of visiting my wife's family farm. There was nearly always fresh slices in the cupboard waiting to feed the hungry workers and sustain them for the day! I am sure that they never noticed a few go missing here and there...

This sweet slice only gets better with the more topping that you add. Be warned though, you won't find this recipe in any weight loss guide!

Step 1: Ingredients

Picture of Ingredients


  • 180 gm butter
  • 6 Tbsp sugar
  • 2 1/2 cup flour
  • splash of vanilla essence


  • 1 tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 Tbsp butter
  • 1 Tbsp golden syrup

Golden syrup is not that common in Northen America. You can often get Lyles syrup in the international isle of the supermarket or alternatively, the site at this link gives directions for making your own. I haven't tried this yet as have brought enough tins from New Zealand to last a little while...

I LOVE personal homemade local recipes!! This looks sweet and crunchy and tender all at the same time. I can't wait to try it! Thanks for sharing!
