Oaty Ginger Slice

Yes, another ginger slice recipe! I haven’t even posted the recipe for the one I grew up eating, so I assure you there will be many more to come…

My nana gave me this recipe, from my aunt, who’s best friend was given it by someone else…. I love how recipes seem to travel like this, and become slightly different every time. I am a huge fan of ginger and this slice disappeared perhaps a little quicky. Anyhow, I do hope you try it, or my other version, the Ginger Anzac Slice!

Oaty Ginger Slice
Base:
¾ cup sugar
5 Tbsp chopped candied ginger
150g butter
2 Tbsp golden syrup
1 cup rolled oats
½ cup chopped roasted almonds
½ cup flour
½ cup ground almonds
½ cup desiccated coconut
Topping:
100g butter
5 Tbsp golden syrup
7 tsp ground ginger
2 cups icing sugar
Some chopped pistachios to top

Method:
Line a 20 by 30cm slice tin with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 170 degrees Celsius.
Melt the sugar, candied ginger, butter and golden syrup together in a medium saucepan. Add the rest of the base ingredients and mix until combined. Press into the slice tin evenly and bake 20 minutes until golden. Cool.

To make the topping, melt the butter and golden syrup together, then mix in the ginger and icing sugar. Pour over the cooled base and spread, then sprinkle with chopped pistachios. Leave to set, then cut and keep chilled.
Also, sesame seeds go well in the base, try adding a tablespoon or two!
