  1. your recipes mix quantities and measurements a bit promiscuously, what is a cup in grams? or vice versa. I also would like to know can self raising flour be used instead of “flour”, omitting the baking powder? also, is the butter salted or not.

  2. It’s a favourite. I like it best quite well cooked, the bottom not too thick, slightly crisp yet still shortcake like. The caramel must be well browned, esp in the corners. Not the easiest slice to get perfect!

  3. Yay I wanted to make this yesterday and thought the recipe was in the edmonds – thankfully I googled and found this one – just like my grandma makes yummo – well off to make some Tan Square i go :)
