When life gives you lemons...a good reason to showcase an array of lemon-y delights, ranging from sweet to savoury or perhaps just an old-fashioned lemonade drink?;)
I have attempted to bake a lemon slice once upon a time but sadly, it didn't turn out quite right so I decided to stay away from unfamiliar grounds since then. But as mentioned above, it seems to be raining lemons lately..people kept giving them to me for some reason...is there a hidden meaning behind these innocent lil yellow objects??!! Har har..
I got this recipe from David Lebovitz and despite being sceptical about using using a whole lemon (yes, the whole thing in all it's glory), I closed my eyes and followed the recipe precisely, I have now learnt how to use lemons from a different perspective.
140g plain flour
1/4 tsp salt
115g melted butter
1/2 tsp vanilla extract
45ml freshly squeezed lemon juice
3 large eggs
4 tsp corn starch
1/4 tsp salt
45g melted butter
Mix all the crust ingredients to produce a smooth paste and try to get it in a baking tin, as thinly as possible (I used my fingers lol). Bake for 25 minutes until golden brown.
Let's do the fun bit now.. As you can see, I have chopped up an entire lemon and placed it in a food processor *fingers crossed*
