If a slice recipe contains sweetened condensed milk in the ingredient list then I’m 100% interested in baking it. Recently my boyfriend bought me The Great New Zealand Baking Book filled with tons of Kiwi classics from complete and utter indulgence to healthy twists to usually quite rich recipes all from Kiwi chefs such as Nadia Lim, Niki Bezzant, Dame Alison Holst, Jo Seagar, Julie Le Clerc, Ruth Pretty and Simon Holst just to name a few! I came across the lemon fudge slice within minutes looking through the book and just had to bake it! Lemon fudge has a nostalgic feel to it, something I had a lot growing up and there’s something about two packs of digestive biscuits mixed with condensed milk and lemon that’s incredibly enticing for me (& hopefully you too)! This recipe is super easy, requires no oven time and tastes amazing! Continue reading “Lemon Fudge Slice”
I have been on the hunt for a good and proper lemon slice recipe for a long time now and I couldn’t find anything I liked when browsing the internet until I decided to take matters into my own hands.

So I created my own lemon slice, a cake/shortcrust bottom with a stiff lemon curd that won’t ooze when cut. Biting into this slice is almost like biting into a cake; it’s light and fluffy then you get this huge hit of indulgence and lemon-y goodness.

I have been so weary of lemon curd for such a long time, maybe it’s because of the time where I completely split the curd to the point where it resembled lumpy orange porridge. Or could it be the time when I took it off the heat at least five minutes early resulting in a soup like texture; who knows? It could be either one of them. Well I have now seen the light after finding the perfect recipe; it’s simple, no thermometer necessary nor will you need any muslin. Four ingredients, ten minutes tops and foolproof (if you listen to me that is)!
