This is like a luxe version of the school lunchbox slice. The oaty base is still there, but in this reboot it's studded with crunchy cacao nibs and satisfyingly tart sour cherries. A truffle topping gives it a rich finish.
Desserts in the ’70s were all about Black Forest cake and cheesecakes. We figured a combination of the two could only be a good thing. Instead of the cornflour thickened fruit topping of earlier eras, we’ve opted for lush roast cherries. This can be made well in advance, so it’s the entertainer’s friend.
