Gerald Who Is A Girl
I also made a Lemon Delicious Slice, to use up some lemons. I have to admit that I don't have a photo, well, because we gobbled it up before I thought of the camera! :-) How about the recipe instead....
Lemon Delicious Slice
150g butter, chopped
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3rd cup caster sugar
1 tablespoon cornflour
1 1/3 cups plain flour
Icing sugar to dust on the top
for the lemon topping
1 teaspoon finely grated lemon rind
1/3rd cup plain flour
1 1/3 cups caster sugar
2/3rds cup lemon juice (for me that was 3 large lemons)
Preheat oven to 180C or 160C fan-forced. Grease a 3cm deep, 16cm x 26cm slice pan. Line with baking paper, allowing a 2cm overhang on all sides.
Make the base -
Place butter in a large microwave-safe bowl and microwave on medium for a minute or so, until melted. Set aside to cool. Stir in vanilla and sugar. Sift flours over butter mixture. Using a wooden spoon, stir until a soft dough forms. Transfer to prepared pan and press in. Bake for 15-20 minutes or until golden. Remove from oven and set aside to cool a little.
Make the topping -
Whisk eggs, lemon rind, flour and sugar together until smooth. Add lemon juice and whisk to combine. Pour over the cooked base. Bake for 20 minutes or until just set. Cool completely in the pan.
Dust with icing sugar, cut into pieces and serve. Nice with cream.
