And that wonderful recipe.

This recipe is for an apple slice served during a bus trip to Mt Tamborine.   Several people wanted the recipe so here it is. On the day I substituted a packet of frozen mixed berries from Aldi (thawed and chopped).  A friend has also made it with rhubarb.  Go ahead and create!!

Auntie Daph’s Apple Slice (Karen’s version)


 1 packet vanilla cake mix

125 g butter melted

½ cup coconut

 Mix together and press into a lamington tin. 

Cover with large tin of pie apples.


 1 carton sour cream

1 egg, beaten

 Mix together, spread on apple.  Sprinkle with cinnmon sugar.(for the berry one, I sprinkle with brown sugar)

 Bake 20 mins on 160o C

 It cuts best if you cool it first.  Also goes well warm with cream or icecream.
