Lemon Slice

By PaisleyJade - Tuesday, August 11, 2009

It's that time of year again (well, in NZ anyway)... the time of year when you start to scratch around in your recipe books for recipes with lemons in them, to use up all of the lemons on your tree. Last year I had heaps of fun making lemony things galore... and so far this year I have discovered this delicious slice...

Lemon Slice

1½ cups plain flour
½ cup brown sugar
1 tsp baking powder
125 butter, melted

400g can of sweetened condensed milk
3 eggs
¼ cup lemon juice
1 tbsp grated lemon rind
2 tbsp plain flour

Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a 27cm x 18cm x 3cm tin with baking paper. Prepare base. Combine dry ingredients and melted butter, mix well. Press mixture into tin. Bake in preheated oven for 10 minutes. While base is cooking, prepare topping.

Place condensed milk and eggs in a large bowl and beat well for 1 minute. Add lemon rind, lemon juice and flour and beat until combined. Pour over base. Return to oven and bake for a further 20-25 minutes or until topping is set.

Allow to cool in tin. Cut into pieces and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving. If desired serve with lemon zest and dust with icing sugar.
