  • food processor



  • 225 gram softened butter (1 cup)
  • cup powdered (icing) sugar
  • 1 ½ cups plain flour


  • rind of 2 lemons
  • 4 eggs
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1 ½ cups sugar
  • ¼ cup flour
  • ¼ cup lemon juice


  • Cream together the butter and powdered (icing) sugar, then add the flour. Press into a sponge roll tin (9x13") lined with baking paper, and bake for 15 mins at 340°F (170°C).
  • If you have a food processor, peel the lemon with a potato peeler, then chop the rind very finely with the sugar, using the metal chopping blade.
  • Add the eggs and process again until well mixed, then add the remaining ingredients and process until smooth.
  • Pour this mixture over the partly cooked base, and bake at 340°F (170°C) for 30 minutes. Dust with powdered sugar and cut into neat rectangles while it is warm.
