Lemon Ginger Slice

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 25 minutes
Total Time: 35 minutes




  • 40 grams butter salted
  • 1 cup rapadura sugar finely blended on high in a dry blender for the smoothest result although I don’t bother
  • 1 tsp tapioca flour
  • 1 tsp ground ginger
  • 1 tbsp grated lemon rind you could also use lime rind
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice
  • cup desiccated coconut this is to dust over the top once the slice is done before you set it



  • Melt the butter and syrup together until just melted.
  • Preheat oven to 180°C/350°F, fan forced.
  • Melt the butter and syrup together until the butter is just melted.
  • Add all other cake batter ingredients, with the egg last so it doesn’t get cooked against the warm butter.
  • Blend on medium speed for 10 seconds.
  • Press out into a lined slice tin of about 25 x 18cm.
  • Bake on 180C / 350F for 25 minutes or until firm and cooked (do the skewer test at 20 minutes to be sure it needs that extra 5 minutes).
  • Remove from oven and decant to a cookie cooling rack.


  • Heat a small saucepan on medium heat until water comes to the boil, then turn onto low heat.
  • Place a bowl over the top with the butter in it, until butter melts.
  • Stir in the rapadura sugar, lemon juice, ginger, tapioca flour and rind/zest into a thick brown blobby paste.
  • Let it sit in the bain marie/double boiler until it becomes thick, spreadable liquid.
  • Spread over the slice (it doesn’t need to be fully cooled first).
  • Dust your coconut over the top and set in the fridge for an hour until the icing is hardened.
