Lemon Curd Slice
A delicious slice of a shortbread base with a topping of tart lemon curd.
The base
  • 125g butter
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • ½ cup icing sugar
The topping
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup caster sugar
  • 1 tbs plain flour
  • 2 lemons, the zest from one and the juice from both
  1. Preheat oven to 190C and line a 20 x 20cm cake tin
  2. Rub the butter into the flour and icing sugar (you can do this in a food processor)
  3. Press into the base of the tin
  4. Bake for 20 minutes until it is golden brown and then cool (I rarely let it cool and it turns out a treat)
  5. Combine the eggs, sugar, flour, lemon zest and juice
  6. Pour over the cooked base
  7. Bake for 30 minutes or until set (keep an eye on it from around 25minutes, sometimes it takes longer, sometimes less because the quantity of lemon juice can vary)
  8. Chill and dust with icing sugar
