If I can make this Marshmallow Slice, then so can you …
In my never ending journey to find the easiest, most simple, recipes around, I accidentally created my own marshmallow slice recipe. Now don’t get me wrong – I’m sure this recipe is out there somewhere on the internet; but for me, it’s one I just made and it’s super basic.
All you need are pantry staples, some jam and some marshmallows … that’s right – no making your own marshmallow. Because honestly who has time for that nonsense.
I used my Thermomix TM6 to make this, but you can use a food processor, a mixer or even make by hand.
TIP: you can make this gluten free by simply substituting the gluten ingredients for gluten free ingredients.
- 100 grams softened butter (cut into cubes)
- 100 grams white sugar
- 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla essence
- 1 egg
- 200 grams flour
- 4 tablespoons jam
- 450-500 grams marshmallows
- Preheat your oven to 170 degrees celcius (340 f), and line a 30x20cm baking tin
- Add the butter and sugar to a mixing bowl and mix until light and fluffy.
- Add in your baking powder, vanilla essence, egg and flour
- Mix to combine
- Tip into your prepared tin, and using the back of a spoon, press down and spread to the corners of the tin.
- Pop into the oven for 10 mins, or until it’s just starting to brown.
- Remove the cooked base from oven and let cool for 10 minutes.
- Reduce oven heat to 150 degrees celcius (300 f)
- Next, add tablespoons of the jam onto the base, and spread around to create an even layer.
- Finally, add the marshmallows onto the top. They do not need to be perfectly next to each other – as it cooks the marshmallows will expand.
- Pop into the oven for about 10 minutes
- Once removed, use the back of a spoon to gently press the marhmallows down (if they need to be closer together).
- Let it cool to room temp and then pop in the fridge.
