  • 60g of butter
  • 1 egg
  • For the filling:
  • ¼ cup of lemon juice
  • ½ cup of caster sugar
  • 1 egg
  • 60g of butter
  • icing sugar to decorate
Instructions
  1. Preheat your oven to 180 degrees (fan forced) and line a slice tin with baking paper. Make sure to leave around 2cm of baking paper hanging over the sides, to allow easy removal of the slice from the tin.
  2. Place the flour, sugar and butter into your Thermomix Bowl and mix for 10 seconds on speed 9 or until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.
  3. Add the egg and mix for 15 seconds on speed 5 or until a dough has formed.
  4. Place approximately ⅔ of the dough (enough to cover the base) into the tin and gently flatten the surface. Set the tin aside and make the lemon filling.
  5. Insert your butterfly and place all of the ingredients for the filling into a clean Thermomix bowl before cooking for 12 minutes, 55 degrees, speed 3.
  6. Pour the hot lemon filling over the dough and then crumb the remaining dough
  7. over the top.

  9. brown.
