Lemon Slice – Recipe

Could lemon be one of the nicest tastes ever? I think if I had to choose one flavour I could not go without, it’d be coffee oops no I mean citrus! 😉

This one is simple to make and so so delicious!

All you need is:

225g butter
1/2c white sugar
2c plain white flour

4 eggs
1&1/2c sugar
1/4c plain white flour
1c lemon juice
zest (skin, grated off) of 1 large lemon

Preheat your oven to 175 deg C.

Rub the butter into the flour and sugar until it resembles fine crumbs. Press into a spring form cake tin (one with a removeable base) and bake at 175 deg C for 15 minutes  until golden in colour.

While that’s cooking, whisk the eggs (at room temperature, remember!) with the sugar until it sort of looks like lemon curd i.e. it thickens and goes pale in colour..
Sift in the flour then mix through the lemon juice and zest.

Pour onto the base and bake a further 20 minutes until pale golden in colour.

Remove from the oven and allow to cool before cutting into slices.

Serve dusted with icing sugar..

This makes a gorgeous dessert with a dollop of mascarpone on the side. Or a nice snack with a cup of coffee. Heck who am I kidding it’s good anytime! 😉



  1. Ah, lemon enhances the taste of anything!
