Once again it’s time to celebrate one of our many colleagues who is passionate about baking. Linda, one of the technical writers, is particularly skilled in the art of home baking. Linda shares her thoughts with us.
“Louise slice evokes the image of ladies’ afternoon tea, lace tablecloths, and bone china, the soft tinkling of genteel laughter and teaspoons. Actually blokes just LOVE this cake; it has the perfect blend of short crust pastry, plenty of jam, your choice of sweet or a little tart, and then the soft but slightly chewy coconut and meringue topping. The recipe is easy and can be made from store-bought pastry to make it even easier – great for those of us that work full time as it means we can keep it simple but still get great results. My mother made it when we were kids, there were six of us so she was a very busy woman, but she still managed to pass on the joy of home baking. My own grown-up children still love to find it in their care packages from home sweet home; some things never change.
“Whether it is a ladylike segment to impress or a big slab for Dad’s lunchbox, the result will be the same…. Yum!”
