    **Jubes**'s Note:

    A great slice recipe using sultanas, almonds and glace cherries. You can make this gluten-free by using a home-made base to the slice )insteadof the purchased pastry) or by using a sheet of purchased gluten-free shortcrust pastry and use gluten-free flour in place of the 2tbs plain flour. Recipe uses Australian metric measures. 1 tablespoon =4 teaspoons
