Simple choc chip slice - ready in a jiffy

This simple choc chip slice recipe is for the days when you want an afternoon snack, but you really couldn’t be bothered. That’s not to say it’s not amazingly yummy and moreish, because it is. What it mainly is, is fast.

You will memorise the recipe within about two goes of making it. Then it will just be a matter of thinking, “I really feel like a simple choc chip slice for afternoon tea” and then you’ll just make it.

Keep all of the ingredients on hand, ready to go.

You can take out the choc chips and add in pepitas or sunflower seeds to make this a healthier snack, but I think it’s just fine the way it is. It’s super-yummy with raisins instead of choc chips, too. It’s great for lunchboxes, either way.

You can make this simple choc chip slice a little less simple, but ultimately more indulgent, but substituting crumbled and smashed dark chocolate for the choc chip bits. Just put your chocolate block into a ziplock bag (or wrap in a clean tea towel for a more sustainable approach) and smash away with your meat hammer. Very therapeutic and it adds to the little-bit melty,  little-bit chunky chocolate,  lotta-bit smashingly good appeal of the slice.

Enjoy this one this afternoon with a cuppa.

Makes 12 slices
Takes 10 minutes
Bakes 30 minutes
 
• 150 g butter, room temperature
• ½ cup brown sugar
• 2 free-range eggs
• ¾ cup wholemeal plain flour

Preheat oven to 180ºC and line a 16×16 cm slice pan with baking paper.

Beat the butter and sugar until light and fluffy. Add in the eggs, one at a time and beat until creamy.

Sift both flours into a large bowl, add the choc bits and mix until combined. Fold this flour mix into the butter mix until just combined.

Spoon into the pan and smooth with the back of a metal spoon.

Bake for around 30 minutes, until an inserted skewer comes out clean and slice is gently golden on top.
