I make a similar slice which this family loves, although the base is crisper on my recipe, the base on this slice was a little softer we all loved this slice as well.<br/>I followed the recipe exactly and these turned out fantastic. I don't think you could muck up this recipe if you tried!<br/>So easy to make, and I didn't have to get out the beater's...all done by hand, which is great for the washing up!<br/>Great tasting slice which this family demolished so quickly!<br/>Thanks for posting Kiwi Kathy, will be making these again.

An easy to make slice that uses pantry staples. I made this recipe gluten-free by using 1/4 cup sorghum flour, 1/4 cup blended gluten-free plain flour and a blended gluten-free self-raising flour. Perhaps just slightly softer using the gf flours than it would be using wheat. A good budget slice that was really quick to make. Photo also being posted.
