Does this take you back? This was the lemon slice of the 80′s and was absolutely everywhere.  It is so good, but oh so bad. A little bit of nostalgia never hurt anyone though.

You’ll need:

2 x 200g packets ready made shortbread
1 x 395g tin condensed milk
2 cups desiccated coconut
1 lemon, rind finely grated
125g butter, melted

For the icing:
2 cups icing sugar
30g butter, melted

3 tbs lemon juice


Butter and line a 20 x 30 slice tin with baking paper, high enough to help you pull the slice out of the tin when set.


Crush the shortbread in a food processor until they become fine crumbs.


Place the crushed biscuits, coconut, lemon rind and condensed milk into a large bowl. Add the melted butter and stir well to combine.


Press the ingredients into the prepared tray as smoothly and as flat as you can.


To make icing, sift the icing sugar and stir through the melted butter. Add the lemon juice 1 tbs at a time until you have a smooth consistency. Spread over the slice and refrigerate until firm.

    yuuuuuuuuuuuuum, I love a good lemon slice recipe. This one is a bit different to one I've made before so I'll have to give it a go – my only problem is my husband loves to snack behind my back so you bake it, pop it away and when you're ready for another cup of tea and a slice you discover it's almost gone!!!!!!!!

    thanks for sharing
    Corrie;)

    Corrie I have one of those husbands too!

  6. Oh this slice is an absolute winner in our house but I make it Marie biscuits – using a softer, shortbread version is now on the cards.
