Florentine Slice


375g packet mixed dried fruit
125g slivered almonds
200g mixed glace cherries, finely chopped
1/4 cup plain flour, sifted
150g butter, chopped
1/2 cup honey
1 egg, lightly beaten
200g good-quality dark chocolate, broken into pieces

  1. Preheat oven to 170°C. Grease a 3cm-deep, 18cm x 28cm (base) slab pan. Line with baking paper (see note).
  2. Combine dried fruit, almonds and cherries in a large bowl. Stir in the flour.
  3. Combine butter and honey in a small saucepan over low heat. Cook, stirring, for 3 to 4 minutes or until butter melts. Allow to cool slightly. Add honey mixture and egg to fruit mixture. Mix until well combined.
  4. Spoon mixture into prepared pan and smooth surface. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside in pan to cool completely.
  5. Place chocolate in a microwave-safe bowl. Microwave on medium (50%) for 2 to 3 minutes, stirring every minute with a metal spoon, until almost melted. Stir until smooth. Spread chocolate over cooled slice. Set aside for 2 hours or until set. Cut into pieces. Refrigerate for 2 to 3 hours or until firm.
