Salted caramel slice
For a bite sized treat cut into 36 pieces.
115g light brown sugar
80g fine ground cornmeal
80g self-raising flour
1/4 tsp baking powder
120g butter
3 Tbsp golden syrup
395g x 1 can sweetened condensed milk
2 tsp flaky sea salt
Heat oven to 180C.
Grease a 26cm x 15cm slice tin and line the base and sides with baking paper.

Bake for 10-12 minutes or until lightly browned and slightly risen.
Set base aside to cool while making caramel.
Place the remaining 30g butter and golden syrup in a medium, heavy-based saucepan over medium heat, stirring occasionally. When butter has melted, add condensed milk. Stir constantly over medium heat for about 6 minutes, until caramel thickens and darkens slightly.

I just made this one which was posted on here in another thread. And is yummy.
Here's my all-time favourite. CARAMEL CRUMBLE
This slice is very like Tan Slice but just stirred together with no creaming of the butter and sugar. As its name suggests its topping is more crumbly but personally I like it better - to make and to eat! It freezes well too if you want to hide some away for another time.

Caramel Topping:
½ x 395g can sweetened condensed milk
2 tbsp golden syrup,
¼ cup brown sugar
55g (2oz) butter

Mix all the topping ingredients together in a bowl over hot water for 5 minutes, then allow the mixture to cool slightly.
1½ cups flour.
1 tsp baking powder
115g (½ cup) sugar,
½ tsp vanilla essence,
115g (4oz) melted butter

Place all the dry ingredients in a bowl, then add the vanilla essence and the melted butter and mix to a fairly soft crumbly consistency. Press approximately two thirds-three quarters of this crumbly mixture into a greased sponge roll tin, then spread the caramel topping over. Sprinkle over the remaining crumble mixture.
Bake at 180ºC for 20-30 minutes.
Allow to cool then cut into fingers or squares. :-))

Anzac Caramel Slice

1 1/2 cups flour
3/4 cup white sugar
1 1/4 cups coconut
1 1/2 cups rolled oats
1 tsp baking soda
200g melted butter
200g golden syrup

400g tin condensed milk
75g butter
125g golden syrup

Mix the ingredients for the base. Leave some for sprinkling on the top of the slice and press the rest into a sponge roll tin lined with baking paper.

To make the caramel, melt ingredients in microwave and pour over the base. Sprinkle with reserved topping and bake 180 deg C until golden - about 20-25 minutes.

The trick is to top with chocolate (melt with cream) instead of chocolate icing for a really yummy caramel slice.

Wow what a lovely list of recipes!

This is the one I remember from when I was young and on my blog :-)
