A Lattice Slice For Mum xxxx

Lattice Slice feature

A couple of weeks ago Mum and I were talking recipes, as you do. I asked Mum the question ‘If I could make you something yummy for Mother’s Day what would you choose?’ Here’s what her responses were…….Apple Crumble, Date Cake, Licorice Allsort Slice, Hedgehog Slice, Kansas Cockles, Caramel Slice, Jam drops, Vanilla SliceAnzac biscuits all of which are on the blog (I kindly pointed that out to her) but she also mentioned Lattice Slice with passionfruit icing and that wasn’t on the blog until now!

Mum commented it had been years since she’d enjoyed a good Lattice Slice. I knew the first thing I had to do was track down a tried and tested recipe.

My only point of call was with the gorgeous Jennifer, whom quite a few of you would have heard me refer to before, this girl’s a wealth of great recipes and one of my most treasured friends.

I vaguely remembered Jennifer bringing a plate of what I thought was a Lattice Slice to my house a year or so ago for one of the kidlets birthdays. It turned out my vague recollection was spot on and before I knew it this gorgeous lady had hand written me a copy of the Lattice Slice recipe she’d made last year. The recipe actually comes from Jennifer’s beautiful Mum Mary, another amazing lady who loves to bake (Mary makes the yummiest food, her Caramel & Macadamia Nut Tarts are just divine!)

Jennifer and Mary usually leave this slice without icing and it’s absolutely delicious I know because I’ve eaten it).

Mum requested passionfruit icing so passionfruit icing she got!  The fact that Dad had sent me home with a bag of his juicy home-grown passionfruit made my job all the more easier!

Just in case you’re not familiar with a Lattice biscuit Alani thought she’d model them for you below.

I hadn’t had one of these biscuits for ages, it just so happened that after making the slice I had 3 left so Alani and I had ourselves a little lattice treat and of course a biscuit wouldn’t be complete without a chocolate milk for a certain little someone who just had to do some mixing action of her own.

This slice is really, really easy and soooooo delicious it’s dangerous, when you make it just make sure you have lots of people to share it with (If I hadn’t of been gifting it to Mum, Zadada and I would of happily eaten it for breakfast lunch and dinner!)

Note: If you haven’t worked with gelatine in a recipe before take a quick look here.

Apologies for all the pictures, I just couldn’t help myself.

The End Result…… Mum got her edible Mothers Day gift a couple of weeks early. She and I even managed to sit down together with a cuppa. I’m pretty sure she enjoyed the slice, I know I did! I’m guessing she may be wanting another by Mother’s Day!

Don’t you just love having a blogger as a daughter, Mum? I Love you so very much, thanks for joining in the fun xx

Recipe type: Slices
Serves: 24
Ingredients
  • 2 x 200g Pkts Lattice Slice biscuits
  • 250g cream cheese, softened, cubed
  • 250g butter softened, cubed
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons lemon juice
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons gelatine dissolved in 2 tablespoons of hot water.
  • ICING
  • 2¼ cups icing sugar, sifted
  • 3 tablespoons passionfruit pulp
Instructions
  1. Line a 24cm x 30cmx 3cm slice tray with baking paper.
  2. Place a single layer of lattice biscuits in base of tray (I used 24 biscuits)
  3. Beat butter, cream cheese and caster sugar with an electric mixer until smooth and creamy.
  4. Add lemon juice and vanilla followed by dissolved gelatine, beat well.
  5. Spread filling over biscuits evenly and top with second packet of biscuits to make a sandwich.
  6. Cover with foil and refrigerate at least 2 hours or overnight.
  7. Once set I cut slice into individual squares ready for icing (if you want a no fancy pants option just leave as is in tin). I just like to cut my squares perfectly, the icing kind of blocks my view.
  8. ICING
  9. Combine icing sugar and passionfruit in a large mixing and bowl and stir with a wooden spoon to combine.
  10. For fancy pants option spread a teaspoon of icing over each square of slice.
  11. For no fancy pants spread entire bowl of icing over slice and pop into the fridge to firm a little (say 20 minutes) before slicing.
  12. Store slice in an airtight container for up to 4 days.
  13. Enjoy!

Does your Mum have a sweet tooth?

If you offered to make her something yummy for Mother’s Day what do you think her request would be?

A super special thank you going out to the beautiful Jennifer and Mary for letting me share their delicious slice recipe.

Until the next time……..

  3. Oh yum! I love vanilla slice and the biscuit versions take like my childhood. We used to make these with Saos but lattice biscuits sound even better.

      My grandmother used to make a Sao Vanilla slice Nicole, it was sooooo good.

  4. This is such an oldie but a goodie. I’m going to have to make it again sometime soon now.
    I think my mum would ask for a baked cheesecake, just to test the theory, I might ask her and then sneakily invite her over 🙂

      Oh how lovely Malinda, your Mum would get such a surprise. I do love a good oldie recipe!

  5. My mum makes a vanilla slice, the one with custard but uses lattice biscuits I thought the was similar but thought the filling was different as it looked fluffy, not like custard.
    And I must say, my word, cheesecake anything in my opinion is delicious, this sounds amazing.

    I’ve printed 2 copies, one for me and one for mum. Mums going to make it tomorrow she has guests coming on Monday for morning tea at her new house, so she’s excited to make it & share it with her friends.
    I’ll take a pic & share with you on FB. xx

      I hope you enjoy 😉
      A pic would be lovely.
      How lovely for your Mum to have a new house, tell her I’m very excited she’s making the slice too, quite honoured actually.
      PS- I love vanilla slice too!
