Found this easy recipe in a magazine. It only has a few ingredients and is simple to make.Though the recipe is called a slice...it is more of a cake.

Simple and quite tasty. Just be sure to use superfine sugar; the bars are twice as high when you do. If you don't have caster (superfine) sugar, whirl regular sugar in a processor for a minute or two. It makes a difference. 1 cup self raising flour equals 1 cup flour, 1-1/4 tsp baking powder and 1/4 tsp salt. 125 g. butter equals 1 stick. A 7x11 pans works well. 350 oven.
