Introduction

Lemon Teacake..luscious. I have made this a thousand times and it always gets "raves"

Ingredients

Serves: 6-8

  • 125 superfine sugar
  • 120 butter
  • 2 medium lightly beaten eggs
  • 63 lemon juice
  • 125 sugar

Method

Lemon Teacake is a community recipe submitted by cake_eater and has not been tested by Nigella.com so we are not able to answer questions regarding this recipe.

  • Preheat oven to mod.180C . Brush a 17cm round shallow tin with butter and paper the bottom with baking paper.
  • Sift flour into a bowl add sugar and stir well. Put in the butter and crumble in through the flour Break the egg into it and stir until it is soft dough. I do all that in the processor.
  • Press 2/3 of it into the tin (I chill it for a while first) pop in the filling (below) then drop little balls if the remaining dough onto the top.
  • Bake 35 min and cool in the tin, nice with a sprinkle of coconut if you like it.
  • FILLING - Place all in a saucepan and stir constantly over lowish heat until it is thickened.
  • The dough is sticky and it is easier to use a plastic glove and pat it into the tin with your fingers.
