Coffee Square Slice

Recipe from Rae Barr (friend)

This is a recipe from my Grandma's friend. It is a combination of a coffee cake and a fruit cake. Delicious idea, perfect with coffee and friends. My sister went to Japan recently and she brought me back some mini hello kitty cake tins. So in this cake I transferred some of the mixture into these pans and put the rest in a lamington tin. They turned out so cute!

  • 180g butter
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 350g mixed fruit
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp mixed spice
  • 1 tsp garam marsala
  • 2 cups walnuts
  • 1 cup milk, thickened with juice of 1 lemon
  • 1 tsp bi-carb soda
  • 1 1/2 cups flour

Into a saucepan put butter, sugar, fruit, spices and walnuts. Simmer for a few minutes, then cool. In a separate bowl, add milk, lemon and bi-carb soda. Add to saucepan and combine.

Bake in a lamington tin for 35-45 minutes at 180'C fan-forced. Ice with lemon icing and sprinkle with cinnamon.
