  • I made this today for the first time and it didn't...

    I made this today for the first time and it didn't disappoint. I did reduce sugar to 200gr for both the base and topping and it was still plenty sweet enough for my taste. I was a little unsure about tin size as I only had a medium sized slice tin but worked out fine, although I had to increase cooking time by about 10 minutes. This will definitely be a new favourite in our household.
