This is my all time favourite slice. I’ve loved it since high school. Back then I would regularly purchase a piece from the tuck shop if I could rake together enough coinage. Who knows why it is called magic slice, but there is no denying that it is simply delicious. The only problem when you bake it is that you want to devour it all.
