I think just about every country kitchen and CWA club has got a recipe for this slice, probably all pretty similar and I can still remember my mother cooking it and the wonderful smell as it cooked in the oven, it was a favourite with us all. It was originally a cake, called The Louise Cake, created for Queen Victoria's daughter, Princess Louise, at her wedding. Most likely our intrepid early British pioneering ladies bought the recipe with them and its been made for generations ever since. I love using Davidson Plum jam on this slice as the tart jam works perfectly with the sweetness of the pastry and topping. Good memories and lots of YUMMMMM
