Lemon Squares

Ingredients:

6oz self raising flour

6oz caster sugar ( a little extra for glaze)

6oz butter

3 eggs

3/4 lemons

icing sugar

Method:

Beat the butter and sugar together until creamy. Then beat in the eggs. Finally sieve the flour in and mix thoroughly until there are no lumps. Place in a small square/rectangular tray (8×8/9×9) with parchment paper. Bake for approximately 20 minutes at 180 °C.

Once baked, take out of the tray and leave to cool. In the meantime, squeeze the juice from 2-3 lemons into a bowl and add in 3 tablespoons of caster sugar. Mix together. Poke holes in the cake and pour the sugar/lemon juice mix over the cake. This will seep into the cake making it very moist. Finally, mix some icing sugar and lemon juice together to make a thick icing (note you will only need a small bit of lemon juice.) Spread the icing on top of the cake. Use a knife to do this, constantly dipping the knife into water (this will help it spread easier.)

Leave the icing to dry, then slice into even square shapes and serve.
