Curd Slice

Very easy slice that can be knocked up in no time and it's nice hot or cold. Serve it for afternoon tea with a dollop of cream or as a dessert with custard or icecream.


  • 1 cup SR flour
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 60gm butter
  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup lemon curd (or jam)
  • 1/2 cup dessicated coconut


  1. Turn your oven onto moderate heat
  2. grease and line the base of a small cake pan with baking paper - I use a large loaf pan
  3. mix the flour and sugar in a bowl
  4. rub in the butter
  5. mix in the egg
  6. spread half the mixture onto the base of the tin
  7. spread curd (or jam) onto the base mixture, but don't take it to the edge - allow about 1 cm margin
  8. mix the coconut into the remaining mix and sprinkle over the curd to form a crumble topping
  9. bake for about 25 minutes
  10. remove and allow to cool a little before cutting
  11. dust with icing sugar


You could easily use the food processor to mix the biscuit base and topping if you wish.
