This slice has always been a favourite of mine ever since my grandmother made it for my sister and I every time we went to her place after school…which by-the-way was a lot! Back then it was made with wheat but we have put our own spin on the recipe to update it and it’s delicious! A favourite now with our kids on their birthday’s.

Warning: Make it once and you’ll be making it over and over!
