One of my favourite things about this time of year is seeing lemon trees absolutely bursting with fruit. Lemons are undoubtedly my favourite fruit to use in my baking – and one of my favourite flavours in general – so as soon as I see the trees covered in bright yellow splotches my mind beginning ticking over with things to make.
Luckily for us we were given a bag of lemons from a friend, so I’ve been able to get into some lemony baking . The result? A beautiful baked lemon and oat slice that’s out of this world delicious. Imagine a chewy oat base topped with a layer of lemony condensed milk and finished with a generous helping of crumbled oat mixture, then baked. Sounds delicious, right?
The best thing about this recipe is how easy it is to make – the same mixture is used for the base and crumble topping, so after five minutes of mixing you’re pretty much finished! The base itself needs to be baked for 15 minutes before any of the toppings are added, giving you the perfect window to get the delicious condensed milk filling ready.
