  • 1 egg
  • 1/2 cup caster sugar
  • 1/3 cup vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup plain flour
  • 1/4 cup self raising flour


  • 1 cup brown sugar
  • 175 g butter
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 1 cup macadamia nuts chopped roughly


  • Preheat the oven to 160°C, fan forced.
  • For the base, grease and line a slice pan with baking paper. Beat the egg and caster sugar until well combined. Add the oil and beat again. 
  • Sift and combine the flours and gently fold into the wet mix. 
  • Spread evenly in the prepared pan and bake for 20 minutes.
  • For the topping, place the brown sugar, butter and golden syrup in a saucepan and heat gently over a low heat for 5 minutes until the butter melts and the sugar dissolves. 
  • Simmer for 10 minutes without stirring. Keep the heat low and watch it carefully as it can burn.
  • Add the macadamias and lightly stir to combine. Pour the mixture over the base, spreading evenly. 
  • Bake in the oven for approximately 10 minutes or until golden brown.
  • Cool the slice in the pan before cutting into 12 slices.
