members' comments

cookie -  It is so quick, easy and tasty.

JD - This is a lovely slice CP63 - like Cookie1's comment, quick, easy & tasty. Had all the necessary ingredients in the pantry.  Only change I would make is to lower the temperature to 180oC and cook for 20-25 minutes as I felt the fan force temperature was too high for a slice. My oven is a brand newie so I am still getting used to how hot I need it for cakes, etc. Will certainly be making it again.

Sounds good CP63, amazing where you can find good recipes for the TMX to convert.

Thanks CP63 - another goodie

JD - As me & MrsT were discussing a few weeks ago, while looking through recipes books and mags from 15 years ago - they are still very good and would be suitable to pass muster on Masterchef.

Yes, I agree Thermomixer.  Oldies are goldies and the TMX seems to do them better than ever as it really is a 'back to basics' machine.  Comfort food as it is called these days.
