Jam & Coconut Slice

If you ever go to weekend markets you will undoubtedly see some lovely ladies there with a table groaning with homemade slices and cakes and those cutesy jam jars with little fabric circles on them.

I LOVE coming home with homemade goodies, there is something so comforting about them and you can just imagine those ladies with flour coated aprons and the smell of their homes as the baking begins!

Everyone loves a good slice to have with a cuppa. Be generous with the jam and I promise you no complaints! Enjoy šŸ™‚
