this is ryan's favourite slice, which i haven't made for a while. i just went to find the recipe to discover it nowhere on the blog, nowhere on paper and nowhere on the original website (taste grrrr). luckily googling found a copy of it - at least i'm pretty sure this is exactly it!
i will now be copying all recipes which are keepers to this blog, that's happened once too often...
