Lemon Slice Recipe - A Simple and Delicious Treat to Bake


How good is a great lemon slice? Lemon anything is something I naturally gravitate towards, whenever there's a café, high tea or other event on the cards. I think the same can be said for most people.

I am always hunting down fabulous lemon recipes for any meal. This particular slice is an old favourite from one of my many recipe files. It works every time and is quick and simple too. If you have a kitchen mixer, then this bake is even easier. This is a must-try!

This tasty slice comes together in no-time and the finished result is not unlike a baked cheesecake. It has a light base and a soft lemony topping which tastes great with a good dusting of icing sugar right before serving. If you're after a yummy lemon slice recipe which is a delicious no-bake alternative, try this recipe which is also a winner.

This lemon slice makes a beautiful tea-time treat, dessert or even school lunchbox snack for the kids. It's really scrumptious and I hope you enjoy this one!

Lemon Slice
Preparation time: 15 minutes.
Makes: 9 squares. (Final number depends on the size of the pan.)

For the base:

1, 1/2 cups of plain flour
1/2 a cup of soft icing sugar
150 grams of softened margarine (or butter if you prefer).

For the filling:

400 gram can of condensed milk
1/2 cup of lemon juice
1/2 a lemon rind grated
1 egg
2 tablespoons of plain flour
1 teaspoon of baking powder

Extra icing sugar to serve.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees C.

Prepare a slice pan: Grease and line with baking paper, then dust with flour and set aside.

In a large mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the base and mix well until a light dough is formed.

Press this base mixture into your pan evenly and bake in the oven for around 15 minutes.


In another mixing bowl, combine the ingredients for the filling and beat until all are well combined.


When the base is done, pour the lemon topping onto the crust and bake in the oven for a further 30 minutes until the custard topping sets and becomes a golden yellow.


Allow the slice to cool in the pan and remove. Slice even square portions. (Tip: Use a knife dipped in hot water after each cut to make the neatest presentation.)


Dust with icing sugar just prior to serving.

Store the finished slice in the refrigerator in an air-tight container. Remove from the fridge at least 20 minutes prior to serving to maximise flavour.

 
Mmm! So good!

    1. I would love a lemon tree. I am so envious. One day I will plant one and it will probably fail as I am a bit of a hit and miss gardener sadly.
