This is my great grandmas recipe that my mum gave to me, after she had a little shock that the one i find online didnt contain particular ingredients. But it means all the measurements are imperial, i just used google converter to find the metric equivalent.
I forgot to take pictures as i was going along, clearly got far too into the baking, but here's the final product. Quite impressed with how it tastes as well.
