Russian Slice


300g Butter

1/3 Cup Golden Syrup

3/4 Cup Brown Sugar

2 tsp. Vanilla Essence

1 1/2 Cups Sultanas

3/4 Cup Natural Yoghurt

3 3/4 Cups Plain Flour

3 1/2 tsp. Baking Powder



Combine butter, golden syrup, vanilla essence and sultanas in a large saucepan over a medium heat until the butter has melted and the sugar has completely dissolved.  The mixture should be completely smooth.

Add yoghurt, then flour and baking powder.  Mix to combine.

Place in a baking tray lined with baking paper and bake for 20 minutes at 180C, or until slice turns a light golden colour.

I found it was best to cool the slice before cutting.
