easy lemon slice recipe abeachcottage.com no bake slice

Good moaning, I am here today broadcasting to the world (the world is reading my blog right, not just some lovelies who like foofing?) with an easy lemon slice recipe, it’s good, it’s simple and it’s great if, like me, you have a glut of lemons to use up.

I have written before on this little corner of the web how slices and me have only recently been acquainted, I had not heard of the humble slice before I moved to Australia…here though it’s much loved and much in use, I have been a total convert to its plusses (this peanut butter slice recipe here is so good and super easy no bake too, I love it).

So this started off as a way to use up a lot of lemons that we had hanging around and Miss BC when she was in one of her baking moods on a Sunday arvo, while the internet radio was playing a station from London, the doors were wide open, the sun shining, a roast pork and potatoes in the oven and a mum who after a bush walking trek was taking re-charge in the literal way, as in flat on back in hammock….there is something about a Sunday afternoon with a roast in the oven and not much else to worry about in life than making a lemon slice.

This is no-bake too, so why not bake it haha

    It’s just past 10pm as I’m reading this and I would give just about anything for a slice of this right now. Love lemon anything. Recently bought a cookbook that is all lemon deserts. Might have to try this one. Thanks!
