Sticky Lemon Slice

Katarina kicked off the new season of cakery in style with an excellent sticky lemon slice. This luscious cake originated in the wholemeal café cookbook from Golden Bay. Several cake club members have independently followed their noses to this café and have given it and this cake a wholehearted thumbs up.

Base

225g soft butter
1/2 cup icing sugar
1 1/2 cups plain flour

Cream together the butter and icing sugar, then add the flour. Press the dough into a flat tin with edges, such as a sponge roll tin, which has been lined with baking paper. Bake for 15 min at 170 C. Let cool slightly.

Topping

4 eggs
1 1/2 cups sugar
rind of 2 lemons
1/4 cup flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/4 cup lemon juice

Beat the eggs and sugar until they are creamy and thick. Then slowly mix in the finely grated lemon rind, the sifted flour, baking powder and lemon juice until smooth.

Pour the topping mixture over the slightly cooled base and bake at 170°C for another 30 min.

Cut the slice into pieces, dust with icing sugar and serve.
