Bron Marshall, another New Zealander who cooks and photographs, says of this nostalgic recipe:.
Ginger Crunch is a well loved slice found in most cafes, bakeries and tearooms around New Zealand. There are several versions and as many variations on different recipes, however here is my recipe, which I believe to be fairly true to ‘the original’.Marshall's recipe can be accessed here.
