“An easy sweet slice that is best after a day in the fridge.I found the recipe in a magazine & tried it to replace a similar recipe that contained 600mL of cream (that did not respond favourably to fat-lowering modification). Absolutely delicious & extra absolutely delicious after a few days in the fridge.”

  10. This slice is even more delicious after a day or 2 in the fridge because the sour cream topping soaks through the spongy base.
