Vanilla Slice … very nice!

I really enjoy cooking and baking. There’s always something new to learn, and preparing something special for friends is very satisfying.

Recently, I tried my hand at a classic vanilla slice (see my recipe below). There’s some cooking involved as well as assembling the components.

Vanilla Slice

1/2 cup (70g) custard powder
1/2 cup (115g) caster sugar
3 cups (500ml) milk
1 tsp vanilla essence
225g Arnott’s Sao original crispbreads (28 biscuits)
1 1/2 cups (230g) pure icing sugar
2-3 tbsp passionfruit pulp

Mix custard powder and caster sugar in saucepan then pour in cup of milk, then heat. Stirring …
Add 2 cups milk, stirring …
Place baking paper in tray and place Saos, pour in custard, layer Saos then chill …
Mix icing sugar and passionfruit pulp, smooth out lumps then apply cold.
Put slice in fridge and let it set.

Perhaps you’d like to give it a try yourself. I’d love to hear from you – and, of course, to receive a photo of your creation. Please write to Food Editor, South Sydney Herald:
