    I made this recipe for a recent work get together. it was delicious and very easy to make! i am definitely going to make it again - thanks  -  14 Mar 2011


    I've been wanting to make this for a long time, had the recipe printed for a while, but when I went to make it I thought that the instructions could be clearer, for instance, what size pan should we use? should it be lined? greased? also cook the 2nd layer until when? until the butter has melted? until it boils? until the sugar is dissolved? A bit confusing for someone who hasn't made this recipe before. Of course, I probably should have read better before I picked this recipe, but it sounded nice. the slice is nice. not fantastic. Sorry. To the person who isn't sure why there's three butter measuring, this is a three layer slice, the first layer is called "base" (so you use those ingredients) and is baked in the oven, the 2nd layer is topping and is poured over the first layer when the first layer has cooled, and the third layer is the icing, added last when everything is cooled. hth.  -  02 Jul 2011
