My mother used to make this slice recipe. It is really easy to make and reminds me of my childhood. I don't know why it is called Jumble but it is a very appropriate word in my life at the moment.
biscuit recipe, Jumble

A lot of things have been jumbled up. Two very close relatives have been very sick and the job I had agreed to start I backed out of due to various issues. So when I thought all was going smoothly it all got jumbled up on me. So I have gone through a huge range of emotions, ended up exhausted but am now feeling that I am coming out the other side. God is a good God.

Here is the recipe as it comes from my mother.

4oz butter
3/4 cup sugar - cream together
then add 1 egg and stir.

Sift in
1 Cup flour
1 tsp Baking Powder
1 tsp Cinnamon
2 tsp Cocoa

If the mixture is not wet and soft then add a little bit of milk. Put a baking sheet on the tray you are going bake this on as you put the mixture on it and roll it out to about .5 cm thick. Make sure there is a lot of flour on your rolling pin as it sticks easily. Do not roll right to the edges as this does expand a bit.

Bake at 400 deg F for 20 minutes (sometimes it does get a bit dark around the edges)

While it is baking get icing ready. Make a water and icing sugar and cocoa powder icing quite thick. As soon as the slice comes out of the oven use a sharp knife to cut it into squares (just do the cuts - do not separate it), then pour the icing over the hot slice. It will run and melt. Sprinkle on 100's and 1000's and press it slightly into the icing. Cool and eat. Yummy.

  1. These look delicious, like a favourite thing of mine (or one of them) but I cannot say for certain because I don't know how to make them!

  2. So easy! Hope things are looking up for you :)
