Easy 7 Layer slice

Morning Tea at Sausage making class

I offered my “Easy 7 layer slice” at a recent class, as something for morning tea.  The students loved it so much I was asked to post the recipe.  I remember years ago my sister made it and for someone that hated any sort of time in the kitchen, I was surprised at how yummy it was.Then I learnt how easy it was to make.  She’s a bright pumpkin.  I decided to add it to one of the Bake Club slice meetings; everyone loved that it was so easy, and  it was perfect for cleaning up the pantry of any leftover dried fruit or cereal.   So, this is my version of this yummy, oh so easy, slice.  

If you’re looking for a super quick, no dirty bowls or spatulas kind of bake, this is it.  It’s also one that can help you clean up some of that leftover dried fruit, cereal, etc. in your pantry.  

How easy is it?

7 layer slice is my grandson’s favourite slice to make.  Apart from the collection of ingredients and popping in and out of a hot oven, he can make it all on his own, and he’s only 4.

I’ve left the cup measurements in this ingredient list; I usually use metric measurements so my recipes can be foolproof, but this one is so forgiving you don’t even have to get the scales out. 

7 layer slice nuts, oats, chocolate and more.

There are quite a few of these recipes floating about on the net; you can change the ingredients to what you like, as long as you keep the condensed milk, butter and choc chips because these are the ingredients that hold everything else together. Oh, and they also make them very yummy. 😉

Serves: 16
Ingredients
  • 125 g butter
  • 125 g biscuit crumbs
  • 1 cup (90 g) coconut
  • 1 cup (150g) chocolate chips (this can be added to, or reduced by ½, but you need some to bind)
  • ½ cup (125g) Oats (or dried fruit?)
  • 1 ½ cup (150g) chopped walnuts (or mixed nuts???)
  • 1 full can (395g – 425g depending on brand) sweetened condensed milk
Method
  1. Melt the butter in a 9X13 cake pan. (We pop the butter in the cake pan and set it in the oven to melt while the oven is warming. Then we collect all the other ingredients).
  2. Remove from heat and sprinkle the rest of the ingredients in layers over the butter. Do this in order of the recipe and you'll have it all glued together.
  3. The last ingredient (condensed milk) needs to be drizzled over the top.
  4. Bake at 175 c for 25 minutes, or till it's golden brown.
  5. If using a glass pan, reduce temperature to 150 c. The slice needs to be lightly browned to make sure you've caramelised and set the slice.  Allow to cool completely (about 2 hours) before removing from the tray and cutting.
Chef Notes
NOTE: The measurements and ingredients can be adjusted. Just remember choc chips will melt a bit and help keep everything together as well as the butter and condensed milk. The base and topping are there to bind so make sure you use them as stated. The condensed milk needs to be able to flow through the mix so it can bind everything to the base.
Why not change the oats for cranberries or change the chopped walnuts for almonds and cashews. Don’t like coconut, replace it with something else.

  • This is the conversion chart we go to when converting Tablespoons, teaspoons and cups into grams. It's our go to list when we don't have time to measure as we go.  If  you cant find what your looking for, think of something that's similar. Like honey for example, it weights the same as jam, maybe your looking for something with a similar consistency and weight to something on our list???  Have fun in the kitchen. Bec 😉
