Lemon and Coconut Slice

Lemon and Coconut Slice

Posted 2016-03-11 by Enchanting Temptationsfollow

I really love the sweet and sour combination of this slice as it's not overly sweet and it's not extremely sour and the coconut is just icing on the cake.. or slice in this instance. This is a great afternoon snack or dessert that pairs really well with a pot of tea, or another piece of slice.

Preparation Time: 15 minutes
Cooking Time: 45 minutes
Makes: 18 servings

Ingredients
Slice:
160g butter
395g tin condensed milk
400g plain biscuits
1 3/4 cup desiccated coconut
Juice of two lemons
Zest of two lemons

Icing:
240g icing sugar
60g butter, at room temperature
3 tablespoons of lemon juice
2 tablespoons of desiccated coconut

Method
  • Grease and line a 20x30cm lamington tin and set aside.
  • Crush the biscuits in a food processor and place in a large bowl.
  • Add the coconut and lemon zest and mix until combined.

  • Melt the butter in a microwave safe bowl and add it to the dry mixture along with the lemon juice and condensed milk.
  • Mix until it is thoroughly combined and press into the prepared tin and refrigerate.

  • In another bowl, beat the icing sugar, butter and lemon juice until smooth. If it's too thick, add more lemon juice or icing sugar if it's too thin.

  • Spread the icing over the slice and sprinkle with the remaining coconut.

  • Refrigerate until set and cut into slices.
