Lemon Slice


DSC_2212

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.

Ingredients

Base
1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
150 g unsalted butter, melted

Filling
1 can Sweetened Condensed Milk, 400g
3 eggs
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

Instructions

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.

    1. Salted caramel walnut slice!! That sounds yum!! Do share 🙂

      This lemon slice was very delicious!! I think I will put more lemon in next time though, more zest, as I do like a stronger tang.
