Notes

Recipe Notes and Tips
I specify fan-forced oven temperatures in my recipes, so if you have a conventional oven, increase the temperature by between 10 and 20 degrees Celsius
If using a non-stick pan, I would still strongly recommend greasing and lining the tin with baking paper. The honey in the topping can run down the sides of the base and become sticky while baking, which makes it difficult to remove the slice from the tin.
If your tin is a different shape and size to what is specified in the recipe, your base may be thicker or thinner and you will need to adjust the baking time to suit.
Slivered almonds are not recommended as a substitute for the flaked almonds, as the texture is quite different and the topping may crack when sliced.
Honey Almond Slice can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 1 week or frozen in an airtight container for up to 3 months.
