Currant Slices

Currant Slices
As I scan through my recipe drafts in my folder- I have yet to post many cakes recipe which I have done many years ago with my collage friends. Those were unforgettable moments to cherish. The following recipe was done when I first started my computer course in a private intuition.A place where I came to meet people from all over the world..different languages,culture and many more.I really had a very difficult time scanning the snaps to perfection. We happened to visit my friend Nancy's aunt living in Bedok for Christmas and as we about to reach her place both myself with Nancy and our gang decide to prepare something for her.After a chaos of discussing -we decide to bake a simply yet delicious Currant slices for her...Anyway we really made her kitchen mess but the cake came out perfectly and she was delight that messiness of the kitchen was completely washed out of her mind. I just wish I would get back those carefree days now..time really flies and still wonder what my collage friends are doing now...really miss u guys:(
