Notes
Leave slice out in room temperature for 10-15 minutes before slicing. This will make it easier to cut through.
Run a sharp knife under hot water, wipe off then cut your slices. This will make it easier to cut through the slice.
* When i made this slice i used 1 full cup of brazil nuts. They are slightly bitter and have a distinctive flavour to them. If you don’t enjoy brazil nuts you can simply use half a cup of brazil nuts and half a cup of almonds.
