The boys are back to school today so I’ve made a yummy slice for their lunchbox treat. It’s probably more suitable for eating at home… but I wanted something special to pop in with their lunch so I could send them off to school with a smile. Both boys are more fond of staying at home than going anywhere!
I’ve made a similar slice to this before but I think this one is more delicious, despite the fact that I accidentally left out the self-raising flour.
