    Gerry's Note:

    This delicious slice is a favorite at our Church gatherings and potlucks. A great 'bake and take' recipe. This recipe was shared and has made many a coffee and dessert time special for family and friends. The first time making I was a little intimidated, but don't be ... it is easily put together and a snap to make, if taking to a potluck expect no left overs to take back home!

    FILLING (this needs to be prepared and cooled)




    1. 1
    2. 2
      Over medium heat bring raisins and water to boil, simmer two minutes and stir in sugar.
    3. 3
      Dissolve the cornstarch in the water and add to raisin mix to thicken, you can use a little more cornstarch if needed to thicken the filling.
    4. 4
      When thickened remove from heat and add the lemon juice and the tablespoon of margarine, cool.
    5. 5
    6. 6
      In large mixing bowl add the flour, sugar, Baking Powder and mix with a whisk.
    7. 7
      Cut in the margarine.
    8. 8
      Stir in the small egg with a fork.
    9. 9
    10. 10
      In a 9x9 pan spread a little over half of the Base And Top mixture in pan, reserving the rest for the top.
    11. 11
      Spread the cooled raisin filling over the base and put the remainder of the Base and Top mix over raisin filling, at this point it may look a little'messy' I find dropping bits all over the top and use the palm of my hand to even it out a bit works well for me.
    12. 12
      Not to worry when you still see the raisin filling here and there as this spreads as it bakes.
    13. 13
      Sprinkle the 2 tablespoons of sugar over the top, bake at 350 for 30-35 minutes (until nicely browned).
    14. 14
      Note, I often make double the filling, make up one and a half times the base and bake in a 9x13 pan when baking for a crowd.

      Definitely a keeper. It's a bit fiddly getting the topping on, but well worth the time and effort. Made for Aussie Kiwi Swap 31 August.

      Doubling the filling worked great for me, 'cause it must meant more raisins per square inch to enjoy! Definitely a recipe to make again & again! From a raisin lover = Thanks much for sharing the recipe! [Made & reviewed while touring Canada on the Zaar World Tour 4]

      Quite delicious. Had to give out copies of the recipe to a few people. Will definitely become a regular for our cookie jar. I followed the recipe to the letter and don't think it needs any tweaking. Thanks for sharing.
