Recipe Request: Vanilla Streusel Slice

On February 7, 2019 By Rebecca Field

Recipe Request: Vanilla Streusel Bars

This is very easily used as either a bake for teatime or one to add to the packed lunch. Very versatile and easy to freeze.

Requested by Lorraine Telfer and her family (July 2014)

Makes about 25

175g self-raising flour

5ml baking powder

175g butter, softened

175g vanilla sugar

3 eggs beaten

1 1/2 tsp vanilla extract

1 – 2 tbsp milk


For the topping:

115g self-raising flour

75g butter

75g vanilla sugar

icing sugar to finish




Preheat over to 180oC. Line a shallow rectangular 23 x 18 cm tin with baking parchment.

To make topping, sift flour and rub in butter until mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Stir in sugar and set aside

Sift flour and baking powder into a bowl. Add butter, sugar and eggs. Beat well until mixture is smooth, adding vanilla extract and just enough milk to give a soft dropping consistency.

Spoon mixture into prepared tin and sprinkle over with topping.

Bake for 45 – 60 mins. Cool in tin for 5 minutes then turn out on to wire rack to cool. Cut into bars and dust with icing sugar.
