  3. 3

    Add the sugar, egg, flour baking powder, salt and vanilla and stir through until the mixture is smooth.

  4. 4

    Spread the batter into the prepared tin and bake for 20-25 minutes. Remove from tin to cool completely before icing.

Method - Icing

    To make the icing, beat all the ingredients together in the bowl of an electric mixer until light and fluffy. Spread on top of the cooled slice.

Comments & Reviews

Absolutely delicious! It is sweet, has the perfect amount of vanilla bean paste and a fudgy texture! It is so morish! Making it for the second night in a row. It didn’t last long between hubby and my 2 boys (who also loved helping make it)
It is an easy but tasty recipe! Even the most inexperienced baker could make this tasty treat! Thanks Queen
