A perfectly delicious afternoon tea treat!

It can get hard searching for a new and interesting afternoon tea slice that will not only go perfectly with a cup of tea or coffee but that also hasn’t been baked a million times before. This unique and addictive fruity slice is a great option for morning or afternoon tea as it mixes a whole bunch of flavours together to make an ideal treat. The sweet vanilla tastes paired with raspberry and topped off with a bit of almond meal really works wonders to make this slice incredible. Plus, if you’re looking to make this dish for dessert simply pop a scoop of plain vanilla ice cream next to it and voila – a delicious after-dinner treat!
