I love lemons…the look, the colour, the smell and the taste. It is such a healthy fruit too. When my daughter made her first lemon cake, I fell in love with it immediately. I thought that’s the best cake I’ve ever tasted…so moist, so tangy and so lovely smell.
After enjoying all the lovely Thai food lately, I thought that making a lemon dessert would just be perfect since I still have quite a lot of lemon in my kitchen left over from cooking Thai dishes and making lemon drink. I got up early in the morning to make lemon bars to bring for an outing. Wow…..I must say my whole house smelled so good. The base and the topping gave a beautiful combination of look, texture and taste. We loved it very much. Here’s my recipe to share:
Ingredients A (biscuit base)
Put everything into a processor and process until like fine crumbs. Press it into the bottom of a paper-lined baking tin. Bake at 180 degrees Celsius for about 20 minutes until pale colour.
Ingredients B (top portion)
1 lemon (zest and juice)
4 large eggs
1t baking powder
Beat the lemon zest, lemon juice, eggs and sugar until light. Sieve the flour and baking powder into the egg mixture. Pour it onto the baked biscuit crust and bake at the same temperature for about 25 minutes. Wait until it has cooled down before cutting. This is a very lovely cake, full of lemony goodness. You can sprinkle some icing sugar onto these lemon bars before serving.
