0 Russian Slice Recipe

How to make a Russian Slice

If you live in the UK you must remember eating a Russian Slice from the local bakery as a child ?

I remember eating many lovely cakes from the bakery as a child; Russian Slices and Rum Truffles were always a big favourite as they tasted so nice.

You can get Russian Slices in different variations, some are placed on to a layer of shortcrust pastry and some with out.

In this Russian slice recipe I use stale (dry) chocolate cake and white Madeira cake with real dark rum and a few other ingredients to produce a delicious moist slice.

Both cakes used in the ingredients need to be dry as the moisture of these cakes depends on how the texture of this Russian cake slice recipe will turn out.

The texture is moist and wonderful to eat, the rum flavour comes through the chocolate and blends so well with the other ingredients.

If my Russian Slice recipe does not take you down memory lane then it will have you hooked as a fabulous new cake recipe to eat.

When your family and friends taste this Russian Slice recipe they will be amazed at how you have made such a fantastic tasting cake.

Impress your loved ones with the ultimate comfort food.
