Otherwise known as the it’s-Sunday-night-and-what-the-hell-am-I-going-to-put-in-the kids-lunch-boxes moment!
While we love biscuits of all sorts here, when I’m making something like the Walnut-Choc-Banana biscuits, and I’m scooping the 46th biscuit on the tray it does get a bit time-consuming. And it’s not something I feel like doing at 7.15pm on a Sunday night after a busy weekend.
Enter, (drum roll please) the choc-chip slice! It’s basically choc-chip biscuits in slice form and it’s ridiculously easy to make. I decided to make them at 7.15, and as I write this at 7.59 they’re about to come out of the oven.
I could go on, but why write about it for longer than it took to make! I’ll add a slice photo once it’s cooled.
[Edit 15/9: lunch box photo]
- 125g butter
- 110g brown sugar
- 110g caster sugar
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 2 eggs
- 150g plain flour
- 230g pack choc chips
Preheat oven to 180C (160C fan forced). Line a lamington tin (28x18cm) with baking paper. Ideally have ingredients at room temperature, but who are we kidding, if this is a Sunday night emergency they won’t be, so chop butter and microwave for 30sec or so until softish. Add sugar and vanilla and use a hand mixer or wooden spoon to beat until creamy. Beat in eggs one at a time. Beat in flour on slow speed and fold in choc chips.
Spread in pan and bake for 30-35 min until golden brown and a tester comes out clean. Cool before slicing into squares. Modestly accept your children’s admiration on Monday morning.
