Good idea in theory, until I tasted it.
The first batch went in 48 hours and the freezer batch was pulled out and devoured in equal time.
It’s good. It’s really, really good.
(makes 2 rectangular slices)
1 cup dried apricots – soaked for 30 minutes
200g brown sugar
250g butter – melted
1 cup dessicated coconut
1/2 cup raisins
1 T vanilla extract
Lemon juice and icing sugar to glaze.
Drain and chop the soaked apricots.
Melt the butter and then stir in the brown sugar until it dissolves.
Combine the flour and coconut then pour in the butter mix, stir, and add vanilla.
Stir through the apricots and raisins and mix well.
Line one large lamington tray, or two smaller slice trays and spread the mix evenly.
Bake in a pre-heated 180 degree oven for around 40 minutes.
Mix together the lemon juice and icing sugar and drizzle over the still warm slices.
Allow to cool completely before slicing into squares.
