Scottish Fruit Slice and Currant Cakes

Whether you call it Fruit Slice, Fruit Squares or Currant Cakes, this treat can be found in most bakeries in Scotland. A sweet treat in a flaky crust, this old family recipe was sent in by a viewer. I’ve recreated it to make it foolproof for non-bakers like myself.

The posh name for this delicious concoction is “Fruit Slice” but it is often called “Fly Cemetery” as the filling of currants does look a bit like a collection of dead flies!

Idea and contribution credit goes to “Kevin – The Basic Filmmaker” with extra special thanks to his mom, Joan, for letting us re-imagine her recipe.
