Lemon Fudge Slice Recipe....yum.
Updated: Feb 16
I really like this recipe - it is easy to make and delicious. I make it a lot for markets and it is always a winner. It has a bit of a summery feel to it with the lemon in it.
In the picture below it on the bottom left...the others are from top left to right - custard creams and mint aero rocky road. On the bottom from left to right - lemon fudge slice, chocolate traycake and millionaires shortbread.
I made it with digestive biscuits once but it was too soft so stick to rich teas!
I got it from the Mum's Recipe Book -a friend gave it to me for my birthday a few years ago and I have made most of the recipes in the book - so it must be good!
So what you need is:-
450gms/1lb of rich tea biscuits.
100gms/3 1/2 ozs of desiccated coconut.
grated rind of 1 lemon.
200gms/7ozs of butter.
397gms condensed milk.
The icing is:-
175gms/6oz sifted icing sugar. lemon juice.
1. Crush your biscuits- I put a few in a freezer bag and bashed it with a rolling pin. Then add coconut and lemon rind.
2. Melt the butter and add the condensed milk.
3. Add to the dried ingredients and mix.
4.Press into a greased traycake tin - you need quite a big one.
4.Mix the icing sugar into the lemon juice and drizzle over the top making a nice pattern or spread it over completely. Leave it to set for a few hours and cut into squares.
