Lemon Slice is one of those yummy treats that takes me back to my childhood. It reminds me of our Primary School Fetes, I can remember walking past the cake stall, eyeing off all the delicious treats carefully arranged on the tressle tables and promising myself I would come back and visit soon. Alas the lure of the games and lucky jar stalls was always too enticing, and by the time I eventually made it back, all of my favourites were long gone.
When I started working in a bakery during my teenage years, it was like I was back at the school fete. So many cakes and pastries to entice me, however often by the time my break came around, many would have already disappeared. I will admit now (some 11 years later) that sometimes I would sneak a piece of Lemon and Coconut Slice or my other favourite – a blueberry muffin aside at the start of my shift to ensure I wouldn’t miss out.
Making this slice brought back all of these memories and then some. It’s surprising really that I have waited this long to make t. There really isn’t a lot to this recipe, and I think I’m now in danger of making it regularly.
Do you have a favourite childhood cake or slice?
