This next sentence I think will say it all – “Tastes exactly like Cadbury Rum & Raisin Chocolate!” That was the most common comment I got when I had asked for recipe testers on this thermomix rum & raisin slice.
The recipe came about when we were heading out for a BBQ with friends for a memorial of a very dear friend. I had been racking my brain on something that was easily transportable, that wasn’t my usual clinker inspired dish (check these out here) and could just be “finger food”.
I have a pile of recipes that are, I swear, almost as big as the internet, that I want to cook and it wasn’t until I was talking with a friend that she suggested a simple chocolate slice. So I thought on it and thought that it would be an ode to our friend if I “dressed it up” with some Rum.
Well I am sure he would have loved it – because I certainly did, as did everyone else!
