Fortunately, Solomon Islanders as well as our expat friends like eating sweet things!
So I get to obsessively bake but don't have to try and eat it all!
½ c white sugar
½ c brown sugar
1 tbsp golden syrup
2 c flour
2 tsp baking powder
2 tsp cinnamon
1 tsp mixed spice
about ½ c raspberry jam
· Cream butter and sugar, then add golden syrup then egg
· Mix in dry ingredients
· Roll out half of the mixture to cover the base of a 18 x 23cm slice tin
· Spread with raspberry jam and then cover with the other half of the
mixture rolled to fit (this patches really well)
· Bake at 180c for 20 minutes
Once cold ice with plain white or pink icing (I used about 2 c icing sugar, 1 tsp butter and enough milk to make a smooth icing, then I added a couple of drops of red food colouring). Sprinkle with raspberry jelly crystals.
