We've been in the new house almost a week now so I thought it was about time I christened the oven and filled the cake tins again.
These slices couldn't be easier to make and if you have a standing mixer are super quick. All they require is 35 minutes in the oven and voila, some tasty treats for lunchboxes and snack time. I used some homemade raspberry jam as the filling but any jam would do...apricot jam would be good.
I'm off to experiment with cooking porridge in the slow cooker now...will report back soon.
