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”
This slice is my ALL time favourite; it’s rich, chocolate-y, super luxurious and it’s the reason why I love caramel. I came across this recipe years ago and have tweaked it slightly to make me feel less bad about the calories being consumed. I usually use coconut as said in the recipe but I COMPLETELY forgot about it at the supermarket so I just added more flour, I also halved the amount of caramel filling as it’s just too rich. I make this recipe once a year and only once as I get obsessed and want to eat all of it – treat yourself but in moderation (#hard).

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. If that doesn’t make you want to bake this then I don’t know what will.
