I’ve been challenging myself to do different things in the kitchen. I’ve never really been into slices and I thought I should start with some basic and simple recipes. Since I have cans of condensed milk and lemons at home, I thought to give this recipe a try. It turned out quite nicely and this is definitely a welcomed change from the long hours spent in the kitchen for my macaron production.
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
150 g unsalted butter, melted
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk, 400g
1 tbsp lemon zest
1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
3 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 cup icing sugar, for dusting
1. Preheat oven to 180°C. Grease and line a 18cm x 28cm slice tray or lamington pan.
2. Combine ingredients for base, mix well. Press mixture into pan. Bake for 15 minutes.
3. Place Sweetened Condensed Milk and eggs in a bowl, beat well. Add lemon zest and juice, extra flour and baking powder, beat until combined. Pour over base. Return to oven, bake a further 25-30 minutes until topping is set.
4. Allow to cool in pan, refrigerate. Cut into squares and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
