caramel slice

Everyone loves this slice.  It’s so good, don’t just serve it with a cup of tea mid-afternoon – no,  forget  dessert and serve a slice to dinner guests with coffee.  It is a classy performer.  At all times it’s best eaten with tea, coffee or a glass of milk.  This is a very moreish version of the classic as it has the addition of coconut in the base.
