Blind Freddy’s Lemon Slice

29th August 2016

There are a few things in this life I simply cannot say no to.
One of those is lemon slice.
So much sweet, lemony goodness in one little bite sized package!

I have never been much of a cake person.
Even for birthdays – I’ve been known to have ice-cream cake, lemon slice, or even coffee scrolls rather than a regular birthday cake.

I’ve tasted many a lemon slice in my time. Have tried quite a few different recipes – using different biscuits, trying different icings, but this one is my ultimate fave! I’ve tweaked a few different recipes and combined my favourite elements and this is the best of the best!

If there is one thing you need to do this week – it’s make this lemon slice.
So simple – even blind Freddy could whip it up.
