Favourite slices

Some favourite slice recipes... mmmm yum!

185g butter
1/4 cup cocoa
1 cup sugar
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour
250g cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar, extra
1 teaspoon vanilla
1 egg, extra

Melt butter with cocoa. Remove from heat, add sugar, whisk in eggs. Stir in sifted flour, beat until smooth. Pour mixture into lined lamington tin (16 x 26cm). Beat cheese, vanilla and extra sugar together, stir in extra egg. Pour over chocolate mixture, swirl through with knife for
marbled effect. Bake in 180C oven 40 mins, cool in tin, cut when cold (bet you can't wait that long though!). I don't swirl too much, just till I get a few choc stripes through the cheesecake mixture. There should be 2 distinct layers: choc cake on the bottom and cheesecake on the top. If you swirl too much, the two mixtures will blend together and you'll lose the desired effect.

this slice is sooooo yummy! i have only made it once or twice as i'm sure it's not on the healthy list LOL

Chocolate Fudge Slice
4 oz butter (120g or 1/2 cup)
1 cup brown sugar
1 egg
2 Tab Cocoa
1 cup SR flour
1/2 cup coconut

Melt butter, add sugar and egg, add vanilla and cocoa, then flour and coconut. Spread into greased, shallow tin, cook in moderate oven 25 min. Ice with Chocolate icing while hot (I just mix icing sugar, cocoa to the right "colour", a dash of vanilla, a couple of Tab of melted butter, and milk to consistency for the icing).

this one is so quick and simple to make and everyone loves it
