Cafe Style Lemon Slice

After visiting my mother-in-law a week ago, I returned with a bag full of lemons and a plan. 
I absolutely adore making home-made lemonade in the spring/summer, but since it is the middle of winter here in Brissie and we are experiencing something of a cold front, I decided to try something else. After hunting around on the net I was inspired to try this:

Cafe Style Lemon Slice
  • 1 packet Marie biscuits
  • 125 g butter melted
  • 3/4 cup coconut
  • 1/2 can condensed milk
  • 1 lemon zested
  • 2 1/2 cups icing sugar
  • 1 1/2 tbs butter melted
  • 100ml lemon juice 

  • Crush biscuits and mix in coconut.
  • Add lemon zest and mix.
  • Combine melted butter and condensed milk and add to dry mixture. Stir well.
  • Press into a lined slice tin and set in fridge.
  • Mix all icing ingredients and ice when cooled. Put back in fridge to set (or if you're impatient like me - the freezer)

Although the lemons were small, I still had enough left over to make one cup of juice which I have popped in the freezer ready for lemonade-making when the weather turns warm again :)

Hope you feel inspired to make this slice - the icing was a little bit runny, but I like to lick my fingers - it's incredibly yummy and hard to stop at just one piece!
