Jam custard slice

This is a cheesecake-style slice but don’t expect it to have a firm texture. Instead, the filling is light, soft and creamy. We’ve used strawberry jam, but you could replace it with any jam you like, or even lemon curd. When making, do take into account the chilling and setting time as outlined in the method as this is definitely a make-ahead dessert.

Recipe Notes

As the filling has a very soft texture rather than a firm cheesecake texture, take care when cutting.
