Vanessa’s ALMOND, CRANBERRY AND SPECIAL K SLICE

All kiwis know a slice from theĀ Edmonds Cookery book, mine would have to be the ginger crunch. I don’t know it from baking it myself, its from scoffing so much of it any time it showed up at a gathering or morning...

Ingrid’s TOASTY THREE JAM SLICE

Vanessa and I both worked at our local bakery when we were in high school, in fact Vanessa used to be my boss on the weekend shift, which didn’t go down too well with me. I just didn’t like being told how to do things by my older...
