ISO: tutti-frutti cake slices recipe

I went to a steam fair at the weekend in Wigan near manchester. A cake stall was selling home made tutti fruity slices. they were delicious but i can't find a recipe! can anyone hepl please? The stall holder said they were in a long thin cookery book!
They were sort of biscuit/pastry on base with a sort of fruity cake on top.(sultanas, tiny bits of pineapple etc)
I'd be grateful for some help. Thankyou.
