  • Serves

    1½ cups Edmonds Standard Grade Flour
    1 tsp Edmonds Baking Powder
    ½ cup Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    140g Tararua Butter, melted

    395g condensed milk
    2 Tbsp Chelsea Golden Syrup Tin
    50g Tararua Butter

    ½ cup thread coconut
    ½ cup rolled oats
    ½ cup Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar
    30g Tararua Butter


    Pre-heat oven to 175°C conventional bake, or 155°C fan bake. Line the base of a 19cm x 30cm slice tin with baking paper.

    Combine the Edmonds Standard Grade Flour, Edmonds Baking Powder and Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar in a bowl, add the melted Tararua Butter and stir well until combined, then press mixture evenly into the prepared tin to form a base. Bake for 10-12 minutes until pale golden and just set.

    Melt together the condensed milk, Chelsea Golden Syrup and Tararua Butter in a saucepan over low-medium heat, stirring until golden and thickened (watch the bottom doesn't burn). Set aside to cool for 5 minutes while making the topping.

    Combine coconut, oats, Chelsea Soft Brown Sugar and Tararua Butter and stir well.

    Pour the caramel over the par-baked base.  Then carefully spread over topping mixture, pressing into the caramel lightly. Bake the slice for a further 10-15 minutes until golden and bubbling.

    Set aside to cool before cutting into slices.


    Chelsea Golden Syrup in the iconic red and gold tin is the best for baking. It has a thicker consistency and richer caramel flavour than Chelsea Easy Pour Golden Syrup (which is more suited to drizzling and marinades).

Just too sweet! We had a piece each and couldn't stomach the sugar despite me knocking back the amount of brown sugar.

Not going to make this again!

Sooooooooooooooooo good i love the topping

This is definitely a crowd pleaser and I always get asked for the recipe it goes a long way as it is very decadent so cut into small pieces

Best ever took a pan full to work gone in 10 mins at morning tea!! Lots of people want recipe pointed them to the Chelsea sugar website. Automatic family favourite!!

This is the second time I have made this recipe and friends love it. So easy to make and tastes great. Add a Dollop of cream on the side and makes a great dessert

Absolutely fantastic.... everyone who tried it was so impressed. Delicious and easy to make.

Seriously delicious! I made these for ANZAC Day this year and was a huge hit. I subbed the golden syrup with Maple syrup (double amount) and it worked really well. Also it took me about 15-20 minutes of constant stirring on low heat to get the caramel thick and beautifully golden. Thanks for sharing this recipe, will be making again and again for sure.

So delicious and easy to make. One slice is not enough, I always have two. Oh no !!

Made this today. Bloody delicious with a capital D! Its the best caramel slice ever AAAAA+++++

So good, very sweet so only need a small piece. Can this cake be frozen?

So yummy

I lo Ed baking g all these goodies for .any years. I'm in a rest home now so don't have to. Looking forward to anzac day. Been .asking knitted poppies for a wreath to celebrate my grandad,father& father-in-law.. my favorite is caramel slice with crushed unsalted cashews on top!

I've made this for so long n so often, I had a suggestion from a friend to add a dark choc ganache on top of the caramel, before the topping n it was amazing!!!

Love this recipe! A workmate brought this into work one night, and I got the recipe. Well, I've made it so many times I don't refer to the recipe any more! The caramel NEVER sinks into the cake and its so easy to make. So rich and decadent. Yum

I made this to share along with 2 other items.
This was the favourite for everyone. A real hit.

Excellent, a real crowd pleaser and not too hard to make. Definitely one to keep!!

These are delishhhh! Can never go back to Normal caramel slice now.

Awesome slice, a real crowd pleaser!

This is a great recipie that is simple to make. Definitely will make again!




Super easy recipe, turned out perfect! I did use a bit less cooking time as my fan oven is a bit fierce.

This recipe is great. I highly recommend that you give it a try. Ingredients can be found around your kitchen, most are staples. Very quick to make and not a lot of dishes!!

Super easy to make and family loved it ^^

Very good, baked this for the little homies. They thought they were "scrumptious on God."
Thanks, Chelsea!

Thanks, Chelsea!

I highly recommend this recipe! As a 14-year-old I found it pretty simple to make -all the ingredients I could find at home. The other day my mother found a very old can of sweetened condensed milk that expired 8 years ago in 2013! I used it in this slice though and it still tastes amazing. A great slice!

Not the best recipe. Very plain.

This recipe is so easy to make and it is super yummy! This is my go to for a shared morning tea! Highly recommend making this!

Reduced sugar content.
Will make again - v nice

Best slice ever, everyone loves it. My best tip is to microwave the caramel instead of on the stoventop. It doesn't burn in the microwave. Just check and stir every few minutes but dont let it get excessively thick

This slice tastes really good! it was simple but everyone enjoyed it. Not usually one to rate recipies but thought I should with this one so that everyone can try it and know it will be good

Should the butter in the topping also be melted? And how thick should the topping be when you cook it?

CHELSEA SUGAR: Hi there, it can be melted or softened. The filling should be a thick caramel, and the recipe image shows the approximate thickness of the topping. Enjoy!

So easy to make and an absolute crowd pleaser!

image description

I only just took it out of the oven. Smells AMAZING!!!. Just a little concerned that the caramel hasn't set inside it even though the top was golden brown. Excited to try it though!!

This slice is to die for! I make it for different occasions and am always asked for the recipe. Definitely a favorite

Easy to make and delicious!

Everyone loves this slice when I make it. So yum!

This is the most delicious addictive slice. Highly recommend and easy to make. Even easier to eat!

These are sooo goood!!!

image description

Is a great delicious recipe and loved by all. Very easy to make as well.

I didn't burn the caramel, Woohoo. Great recipe! Thank you.

Very easy, so delicious! Not just for ANZAC day, it's a household (and workplace) favourite. Maybe be careful who you share it with, you'll get lots of requests.

Looks so good. I bet it is going to taste like the best Anzac thingy I have ever tried. Thanks for recipe.

Wonderful, easy to follow recipe that worked perfectly! Absolutely delicious & is now a favourite home-baking treat that we put in our accommodation rooms for guests.

Interesting. I think I'll try it. We all love Anzacs and a slice is always nice.

My husband’s all time favourite!

Made this for food tech Year 9. Easy and tasted divine. Also basic pantry ingredients!!!!!!

I really love it!! Keep making more!

Wow! As a 10 yr old I found this easy and fun to bake. The second I told my younger brother (7) he said it sounded veeeery delicious and started complaining about how he wants them now. Its a wonderful slice with the perfect base and caramel topping, you couldn't have made it any more delicious.

My Mum recommended this slice to me and I couldn't of thanked Chelsea more for their incredible ANZAC Caramel slice. I can't keep me and my family away from them! Definitely a recommendation and a new family favourite!

Super quick and easy and SO delicious!! Will definitely be making this again

Delicious. I added 1/2 cup of dutch cocoa & 1 tsp of vanilla essence to the base as a variation. As well as a pinch of cinnamon to the crumble and a bit more butter, so it has a chunkier crumble. Great recipe thank you.

Beautiful! I double the base and add a little more butter to the filling, and a little bit more of the topping on top and bake in a roasting dish! It never lasts long in our home!

So easy to make... can’t get it wrong and people love it


Quick and easy to make .... very yum!!!

Nobody ever has a bad thing to say when I make it and lots of recipe requests!

Just made these and they are so good, the recipe was easy to follow and was a huge success. Will definitely make this again

You dont make friends with salad. This slice will make people go mental. It's the best slice I've ever had. Been using this recipe for years.

Definitely a winner here! Took it to work, my colleagues couldn't keep their hands off it, I think my skinny partner would have eaten the whole lot if he could!

Very delicious and easy to make, and even easier to eat.


This is most definitely the best slice I’ve ever tasted! I just can’t turn away from it!

image description

This slice is brilliant turns out perfect every time, just like most of Chelsea's recipes, love it.
Only down side is the many requests I get from family & friends to make them a slice :)
My Nephew told his friends I make the best edibles.
Thank you Chelsea for your fantastic recipes.

A family favourite!

This recipe is a hit with everyone when ever I make it.


My go to slice if I need to whip something up - always have the staples to this recipe in my pantry. Everyone who says just one slice ALWAYS comes back for more! I seriously love this recipe!

This recipe is loved by my whole family.

Delicious and easy to make!

Easy to make, affordable and delicious

OMG !!! Made this for my workmates and merchandisers and yup was gone in like minutes ( well as soon as I got into the staff room and put it on the table). Really easy to make and so yummmmmmyyyy

I bake this quite often and add extra ingredients to it. The last time was roasted/salted macadamias, chop them into chunks, place them on top of the caramel and then oatmeal to cover, and I promise you, you won't be disappointed.

Very enjoyable

This was the best thing I've ever tasted

This is indulgent, found it needed extra time baking, another 10mins

image description

best caramel slice ive tasted and ok to make

Baked to take to work...gone in 5 mins! Everyone adored them.

image description

I’m is delicious, my family cheer every time I say I’m going to make it:-)

so easy and super Yummy

I have made this many times and it is delicious. Does anyone know if it can be frozen? Thinking of making things ahead ready for Xmas.
CHELSEA: Good idea! Yes, this slice can be frozen. We would suggest wrapping the whole slice in cling film, then a layer of foil, then place in an airtight container and freeze.

I think this is a good and yum. I love it . You have to give it a try.

Excellent recipe, the only thing wrong with it is - it is toooo easy to eat

Delicious! Have made this several times, and always goes down a treat in the staffroom.

Excellent slice, family absolutely love it.

image description

This recipe was sooo delicous!
Made my mouth water in vain as I made it!

Too sweet and does not make enough topping. Missing some direction for how long to microwave condensed milk.

image description

Delicious! The only bad thing about it is that you just keep going back for more!!

I have made this gooey Anzac Slice on many occasions and it turns out beautiful every time. It's so easy to make and you really can't fail with this recipe, most of all it's very delicious.

Amazing! Easy and delicious. A real treat


This recipe is amazing. Easy to make, and even easier to eat!

Very delicious, especially for a caramel-lover! I used dessicated coconut instead of thread (because that is what I had in the cupboard) andI suspect this was the cause of the ANZAC crumble topping not adhering very well to the caramel layer - so in future would definately use thread coconut.

image description

Absolutely scrumptious ! Made a double recipe of this, and yes it's definitely a hit with the family!

I have made this slice twice. Very yummy, special slice for Anzac Weekend.

My husband said this is the best slice he has ever had!

I've just made this and substituted the ordinary flour with gluten free flour. We are looking forward to trying it later today.
