This was really nice! It was easy to make and even easy to slice thin which surprised me, Will be a nice gift idea too. Will make again for sure.

I made this for the first time and it came out great. I will be making more later this week to go in the christmas hampers. I used my deli slicer to cut them 4mm thick, wasn't sure if they could go thinner and didn't want to risk ruining them. I may try with a few in my next batch. I cooked them the second time for about 35 minutes, though I may cook for less next time as they got a bit of colour. Thanks for posting this easy recipe.

I have been making this for years and it is beautiful I make it at christmass and add red and green cherries for taste and a festive feel.I made this by mistake with self raising flour only thing i had to do was slice a bit thicker and toast a little less but it turned out fantastic.Alot less heavy.
