Ginger Coconut Slice

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, May 17, 2011

I love anything with ginger in it (especially things like Ginger Crunch) and coconut.  This slice has all the right combinations and is super easy to make.

60g (2 oz) butter
1 tablespoon golden syrup
1 cup self-raising flour
1½ teaspoons ground ginger
½ cup sugar
½ cup coconut
1 egg

Lemon Icing
1 cup icing sugar
30g (1 oz) butter
2 teaspoons lemon juice
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
1 teaspoon hot water

Melt butter and syrup over low heat.  Sift flour and ginger, combine with sugar, coconut and lightly beaten egg. Pour in melted butter and golden syrup.  When well combined press into well-greased 28cm x 18cm (11in x 7in) lamington tin.  Bake in moderate oven 25-30 minutes.  When slice is cool, spread with Lemon Icing and cut into squares.

Lemon Icing: Sift icing sugar into bowl.  Combine soft butter, lemon juice, grated lemon rind and hot water, stir until butter melts.  Mix into icing sugar, beat until smooth.
