One of my mum's best recipes. We used to call it a Skite Cake but now I think everyone knows it as a Caramel Slice. She would ice it with chocolate icing.

T still would like to know what I do with other tbs flour - 05 May 2012


i was wondering why the base in the picture appears to contain NO cocoa? Recipes states 1 tblsp cocoa! Is this a stock picture or one of the actual slice that was prepared? Sorry but it smacks of false advertising - 16 Sep 2013
