Its Friday, that means its time to be a little decadent for the weekend!!! Its time for a gloriously light, perfectly sweet yet tart, Lemon Tart! This is a great to take to a friends BBQ, and impress the pants off them!
Its very simple to make, and for something so delicious, doesn’t take that long to prepare. Theres no oven cooking, though allow an hour for the base to set in the fridge, and 20-25 mins for preparing the lemon curd.
Equipment you will need:
Ideally you will need a springform pan (thats one of those pie pans with the removable base). It makes it so much easier to remove from the pan, and allows you to maintain a restaurant quality appearance! Though you will see from the pics that I used I silicone pie dish, and that worked pretty well too, as you could peel it off!
You will also need a heatproof bowl, I just use a glass bowl, as you will need to make the lemon curd in a bowl over a saucepan of boiling water.
Finally, you will also need a food processor, or similar electric chopping device to process the biscuits into crumbs!
This cake is super easy and yum yum yum! Shane particularly loves this one for his work lunchbox. Its sweet enough to taste great, but is still pretty low on the bad stuff! Whenever I make this for special occasions, Im under strict orders to make sure I make 2 - one for Shane, and one for everyone else!
Low fat too as there's no butter or oil!
Now its up to you if you want to ice this beauty - its quite nice without it, but if you are after something decadent...
