No bowl, one pan easy slice recipe for the kids to make

No bowl, one pan easy slice recipe for the kids to make

I don’t know what to call this easy slice recipe, other than ‘easiest slice ever’. It’s a tin of condensed milk, some self-raising flour, coconut, choc bits and butter all melted together to form something naughty but very , very nice. You don’t even need a bowl – you just mix it in the pan.

This is the kind of thing that you would throw into a tin and into the oven when you forgot to bake something for the school ‘bring a plate’ thingy.

Or if your MIL called to say she was on her way over for a cup of tea.

Or if you were ‘visiting’ in that lovely old-fashioned sense of the word (generally ‘visiting’ is when you go see your great Aunty Ruby or those friends of your mother’s who you see once a decade). That kind of thing.

Easy slice recipe - use one pan and it's done in a jiffy

The last time I made this easy slice recipe was for Max to take to Junior Rangers for his birthday. The face at 3.15 pm when I said I hadn’t made anything for him to take along that afternoon. So at 3.50 pm when we were heading out the door, I had a box of these babies tucked under my arm and a million kid-brownie-points unexpectedly racked up.

It’s that kind of easy slice recipe for those kinds of moments.

Try these recipes too:


It might not take a lot of time to make, but doesn’t it look the business? So fudgy, caramelly and oozy. It literally melts in your mouth, but not before packing a big hit of flavour. This may be an easy slice recipe, but it’s not a slice that disappoints. Go ahead and give it a go.

Easy slice recipe

Takes 5 mins
Bakes 30 mins
Makes 24 small squares

1 cup self-raising flour
½ cup desiccated coconut
2 tsp honey
125 g butter, melted
¾ cup dark or milk choc bits
400 g tin of sweetened condensed milk

Line a 27 x 18 cm slice tin with baking paper and preheat oven to 180ºC.

Mix all the ingredients except the condensed milk directly in the pan.

Press down firmly. Pour the condensed milk evenly over the top.

Bake for about 30 mins. Cool in the pan before slicing (or, if desperate, slice warm, take the whole pan with you out the door and dish up when you get wherever you’re going).


If you find this recipe too sweet, simply leave out the honey. If you’re stuck, it also tastes perfectly yummy without the choc chips.

I’ve never tried freezing this one (it’s always eaten before I get to that bit), but I can’t see why it wouldn’t freeze okay for up to a month.

If you make it the day prior to serving your is it best stored in the fridge?

It's always been devoured instantly at my place, so I wouldn't know for sure... but I'd say YES! x

Hi, my friend made this the other day and I LOVED it. I was just wondering if I doubled the recipe would that ruin it? Would it be best to just make two batches? Thank you!

Hi Is it possible to omit the coconut and if so what should I use instead?
