This slice has been a favourite in our house for years... but I've only just got around to converting it to the Thermomix. It's completely egg-free, which is fab if you're catering for any allergies. You can also substitute dairy-free spread in place of the butter to make it dairy-free as well. Seriously, this Thermomix Honey Almond Slice is so versatile - and you're going to love it!
The only thing to be careful of when making this slice, is to keep a good eye on it once you pop it into the oven with the almond layer on top. Honestly, within 2 minutes the flaked almonds can go from undercooked to burnt. And no-one, I repeat no-one, wants to eat burnt almonds!!!
I can tell you this from personal experience as this version of my slice (the one in the photos) was very nearly verging on being overdone. Yep, and it's all because I was distracted for a couple of minutes by my little boy (he was eating a piece of avocado toast for the first time ever and it was all very exciting!!).
Anyway, I know that you'll love this Thermomix Honey Almond Slice. PS. It's absolutely perfect with a cup of tea on the side.
