No Bake Lemon Slice (Thermomix Method Included)

When I was 19 and at University studying music, I had to do a practice teaching block. I chose Erina High School, as it just so happened that there was a boy I liked who lived there! I was staying at a friend’s house and he lived with his Grandmother. So as you do, I popped over for a cup of tea and a chat. His grandmother got out this slice… seriously I could have eaten the whole slab, but I didn’t because I was trying to be polite. This is the exact same recipe, just doubled for my slice tin. I like it for many different reasons; I’m a fan of anything lemon; it keeps in the fridge for a long time; I don’t have to cook it; if I need a sugar hit it does the job very well; It is easy to whip up and take to friends houses; EVERYONE loves it!

NB. If you would like the icing to be really smooth and glossy, when you have finished spreading it, go over with a hot knife, before putting on coconut, it just looks a bit more professional. When I am at home, I like the rustic look!

Enjoy Irresponsibly! (well maybe not too much, if you have that sort of will power!)

    Lovely recipe, ive made this twice! Delicious. Sadly, i always have butter pooling at the top of the biscuits when i press it into the tin. Havent tried to reduce the butter, but will the next time i make it.

      That would generally be the biscuits not absorbing it well enough 🙂 try and mill the biscuits a bit more so they absorb more butter!!! LOL or you could reduce the butter…. ? but when you put the icing on top it should be fine 🙂

    I have a question. 3/4 cup of desiccated coconut weighs about 70g according to my scales… should I use 150g, or the 3/4 cup (70g)?

    Reply
    • Elizabeth Connolly

      Hi Kristy, Sorry you are right, but it is 80g of coconut… not sure how that happened… actually I made it the other day and popped it in the freezer and I used this recipe from my iPad using the 150g and it still turned out fine 🙂 Thanks so much for alerting me to the mistake!!! I will change it straight away! Liz xx

    Drooling, I freakin love lemon slice. Actually most things with lemon are relish. This little beauty would be rather popular in my kitchen, the no bake business is a winner. Gonna add this to the list for next weekends creating. 🙂

    I love this lemon slice, Liz. My mother used to make it and I loved the lemon taste with the sweet icing. It’s also a great recipe because you don’t have to bake it! You’ve reminded me I must make this again xx

      It is wonderful Charlie! A Friend of mine made it gluten free by using the special gluten free tea biscuits if you would like to give it a try! But I just love it any way (probably a bit too much) 🙂 Liz x
