Cafe Style Lemon slice

Getting my bake on! This week’s recipe – Lemon Slice

Well actually you don’t have to bake it in the oven! You just mix all the ingredients together and viola!…a lovely, citrus slice that freezes well which you can easily add to the kids’ lunchboxes, or in my case, my little sister’s take away bag :). I can’t believe I have never eaten lemon slice before – I had to get some volunteer taste testers to make sure I made it right and it was a success 🙂 I love finding easy, no fuss recipes that produce yummy treats for the family. I found this one at Best Recipes but added a little squeeze of lemon juice to the base, not just to the icing mixture and slightly changed the icing amounts (see below). If you’re looking for a simple, zesty, party-pleaser this recipe is a must!

Lemon step 1 and 2 Lemon step 3 4

Ingredients

1 packet of Marie biscuits
125g butter, melted
3/4 desicated coconut
1/2 tin condensed milk
1 lemon

Icing Ingredients

2 cups icing sugar (I used a little less than 2 cups as I don’t like too much icing on my slices)
1 tablespoon butter, melted
lemon juice

Method

Step 1:  Crush biscuits and mix in coconut.
Step 2: Add finely grated lemon rind and mix.
Step 3: Combine melted butter and condensed milk and add to dry mixture. Add a little squeeze of lemon juice. Stir well.
Step 4: Press into a lined slice tin and set in fridge.
Step 5: Mix all ingredients and ice when cooled.

Enjoy!

Do you have a simple dish or dessert that you can whip up with minimal fuss and energy!? I’d love to hear from you! These past few nights Baby D has been sick and very unsettled resulting in a cranky, sleep-deprived ma. Luckily last weekend we got some much appreciated take away dishes (pansit, menudo and kare kare, YUM!) from a Filipino family party we attended so dinner this week has been a breeze – comfort food, leftovers! Filipinos love having a abundance of food at their parties and equally love being able to take it home to eat for dinner the rest of the week LOL! Anyways I get side tracked easily. I was able to try this slice out because instead of having to cook dinner, I had the time to try the above recipe! If you have a go-to meal that is simple but flavorsome let me know in the comments 🙂

Thanks and have a wonderful weekend lovelies! -xx-
