Crispy on the outside with a creamy caramel and nut centre on a coconut base, we love this caramel walnut slice. Great for the kids after school or an anytime snack.

For the base:
60g butter
65g sugar
80g plain flour
½ tsp baking powder
45g dessicated coconut
For the topping:
2 eggs
1 tsp vanilla essence
100g dessicated coconut
320g brown sugar
½ tsp baking powder
100g walnuts

Line a 20 x 30cm slice pan with baking paper. Preheat the oven to 180°C.
For the base:
Place the butter, sugar, flour, baking powder and coconut in the TM bowl and cook at 90°C at Speed 3 for 1 minute.
Press into the base of the slice pan. Place in preheated oven and bake for 15 minutes at 180°C or until golden.

For the topping:
Place eggs, vanilla essence, coconut, brown sugar and baking powder in the TM bowl and mix at Speed 4 for 20 seconds.
Add the walnuts and mix at Reverse Speed 1 for 30 seconds.
Spread the topping over the base. Bake for a further 25-30 minutes or until topping is cooked.
Allow to cool and cut into squares or slices. Makes 16 – 18 pieces. Keeps for 3-4 days.
