july: lisa’s florentine slice


Dried fruits are something that I generally have in my pantry at any time of year. So versatile, and so tasty, they can give any dish an extra kick of sweetness. Whether you use it in a savoury dish such as sultanas in a chicken tagine, or in a sweet bread, or in a cake, they are easy to use, and available no matter what season you’re in.


This month I decided to go super simple. In fact, if you have kids, this is a perfect dish to introduce them into baking. And for the grown ups, it’s an easy recipe that will only take minutes to put together.


What is it about Wintertime that makes you crave sweet sugary things. Maybe it’s because we also crave warm drinks such a tea and coffee to heat us up from the inside. This slice is a perfect accompaniment to your choice of tea or coffee. Need a 3 o’clock pick me up? Just grab a piece of your florentine slice and indulge in some chewy goodness.



Hope you all enjoy!
