  • 220 g Butter, Melted (1 Cup)
  • 1 and 1/2 Cups Brown Sugar
  • 2 Large Eggs
  • 1 and 2/3 Cups All Purpose Flour
  • 1 Cup Self Raising Flour
  • 2 and 1/2 Cups Oats
  • 1 Cup Coconut
  • 110 g Butter (1/2 Cup)
  • 1 Tin Sweetened Condensed Milk (400g)
  • 1/4 Cup Golden Syrup
  • 1 tsp Vanilla Extract
  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C (350°F) and line a 9"x13" baking tin with baking paper.

  2. First make the caramel.
  3. Place the condensed milk, golden syrup and butter in a saucepan on a medium heat and allow them to melt together.
  4. Once it has all come together take off the heat and add the vanilla extract.

  5. Allow to cool slightly while you prepare the filling.
  6. Place the brown sugar in a bowl and mix in the melted butter.
  7. Add in the eggs and mix.
  8. Add the two flours, oats and coconut and mix until all combined.
  9. Press 2/3 of the mixture into the base of the prepared pan.
  10. Top with the caramel and then crumble over the remaining oat mixture on top.
  11. Place in the oven to bake for around 30 minutes. The top should be a light golden colour.
  12. Allow to cool completely before slicing. I like to cool mine in the fridge so the caramel slices nicely.
