Well, well, I made this today for tonight's WI meeting but tweeked it a bit.  A glut of eggs meant I added four of the with a glug of milk(semi skimmed) otherwise the same.  Topped with white melted chocolate mixed with 8oz icing sugar an 4oz baking fat then scattered chocolate strands over to complete.  Went down a storm!  It made two squares and only one was needed as I made an apple cake too. 🌞
