Wonderful slice:) Very easy to make and a winner in my home. A lovely cakey slice with the crunch from the nuts on top. You could use any nuts in place of the Brazil nuts- the one cup of nuts was a small packet 150 gram size. The fruit mince was a whole bottle and used the juice of 1/2 orange. Next time I make this slice, I will be trying it using a purchased general purpose gluten-free flour blend, so that I can enjoy a slice too ; Photo also being posted. Thanks for posting another great recipe Pat. Made for "Make my Recipe" tag game in the Aus/NZ Forum
