Recipe as appears in signature pic! azn

Jen's Nut Caramel Slice

Base:
1 cup self raising flour
1 cup plain flour
2 tbsp cocoa
150gm butter, melted [5.28 oz. approx]
3/4 cup caster sugar [extra fine]
1/2 cup desicated coconut [fine]**
Mix & press into base of 13"x 9" slab pan [extra lrg. lamington tin] Bake in mod oven 180c or 350f for 10 min. Remove, set aside. reduce oven to 140c or 300F??? very slow oven.
Topping:
2 tins sweetened condensed milk [14 oz. ea.]
2 tblsp butter
2 tblsp golden syrup [dark Karo syrup]
3 1/2 cups walnuts
Combine sw. cond. milk, butter & golden syrup in med. bowl or large jug, mix well, stir in nuts to coat. Pour over cooked base & bake 140c for 1 hr.
Topping: [optional]
200gm dark chocolate [not quite 1/2 lb]
1/2 cup cream
Warm cream in saucepan, add chocolate to melt, stir well & pour over cooked & cooled slice.
**In Australia desicated coconut is a very fine coconut, if I run out I take shredded coconut & whizz in a food processor. Takes about 1 cup shredded to make 1/2 cup desicated coconut.


History of recipe: Jen was someone I struck up a friendship with that opened a little cafe on our river foreshore. She did burgers & fries, egg & bacon rolls, a few slices [bars] & cakes but mainly was an ice cream shop.
We met her & her husband for a beer & dinner & I often had a coffee in her shop. One Sun. we met for dinner just before she was going to close up shop - she hated it from the beginning, she had gone from secretarial office work to running her own busines & couldn't cope with all the standing required in the business & she couldn't find a buyer fast enough.
Next day I saw her for a minutes as they were packing things in the shop. 2 days later her husband showed up at my door asking where his wife was - while he was away at a job interview she had got a removalist in & emptied their house of all her furniture & belongings & poof gone!! Hence my referring to her as Jenny the Bolter!
Cheesy

Ray loves apricots. I was going to copy your recipe. But I have it. Only mine calls for a can of crushed pineapple. Now I know I can change that to the apricots.
Thank you! I am going to try it.

Bake 180c [350f] for approx. 14 min. remove

In large bowl combine soaked dry apricot with
