    Easily my favourite slice recipe  -  19 Jan 2015


    Mmmmmm! Do yourself a favour and cook this..... Actually, make two because 1 won't last long enough to put into lunch boxes. This is easy to make and better to eat! Just like a bought one except no preservatives. A winner for me.  -  22 Feb 2015


    I thought this would be one of those fiddly slices but no it was soooo simple. I made my own spiced stewed apple to use up some of those unwanted apples in the fruit tray and also sprinkled caster sugar on top. It came out beautifully with a dollop of fresh chantilly cream.
