Notes

RECIPE NOTES & TIPS
Equipment - this is a super easy one bowl recipe. All you need is a bowl, a spoon, a baking tray and an oven. You can also prepare the base and icing in a Thermomix. Both methods are included above. 
Icing sugar - for thick and firm icing, use pure icing sugar. For a soft icing, use icing mixture. If you're planning to use the slice in lunch boxes, I recommend using pure icing sugar.
Runny vs. thick icing - if you like your icing to be thick, simply add a little more icing sugar and a little less water. If you prefer a runnier style of icing, add a tiny bit more water (but not too much!).
Storage - This slice can be stored in the fridge or in a cool place at room temperature for up to 5 days. Alternatively, it can be frozen for up to 3 months.
