When it comes to classic Aussie treats, it doesn’t get much better than the vanilla slice. While the original version requires plenty of time sweating over the stovetop to make the custard filling, this version uses a cheats trick to speed things up.
While the crispy, sweet puff pastry is still there, the filling uses instant vanilla pudding mix to create that delicious wobbly and creamy centre. The trick to this recipe is folding the whipped cream into the custard mixture at a quick pace. This will give the mixture the perfect amount of aeration.
Store the slice in an airtight container in the fridge to keep it fresh in the hot weather and serve it up with a cuppa for morning tea. Enjoy!
Alternatively, you can just sprinkle the icing sugar over the top of the slice as shown in the picture.
