aunty alice’s tower squares

Aunty Alice tells me her immediate family have been demanding this slice in the tin for years.  This is a “I just have to have another little piece” number – you will simply love it.  A real family favourite!




125g butter

1 cup sugar

2 eggs

2 cups plain flour

1 dessertspoon golden syrup

1 cup sultanas

2 tsp. baking powder




2 cups icing sugar

25g butter, softened

2 tbsp hot water

1/2 cup toasted coconut threads




Preheat oven to 160deg C. Grease a 20 x 30 cm slice tin. Cream butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add eggs, beat in with golden syrup. Fold sultanas into 1 cup of the flour to coat. Add to creamed mixture with extra 1 cup and baking powder. Bake at 160degC for 30 minutes or until firm in centre. When cool,  ice with icing and toasted shredded coconut.
