Category : , , ,

I made these on Saturday for some of my favorite people, and they went down a treat! If you are going to make the lemon slice, i suggest making it the day before as the base has time to soften a little and soak up some of that yummy lemon flavour!

Lemon Slice
By Donna Hay

1/2 cup caster sugar
1 1/4 cups plain flour
120g butter
1 tablespoon milk
topping
1 1/2 tablespoons cornflour
2/3 cup cream
6 eggs
1 3/4 cups caster sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons finely grated lemon rind
3/4 cup lemon juice

Preheat the oven to 170 degrees celsius. Process the sugar, flour, butter and milk in a food processor until the mixer comes together. Press into a 20cm x 30cm slice tin lined with non-stick baking paper. Bake for 25 mins or until golden brown.
To make the topping, whisk together the cornflour and 2 tablespoons of the cream until a smooth paste forms. Whisk in the remaining cream, then the eggs, sugar, lemon rind and lemon juice. Place in a saucepan over low heat and cook, whisking for 6 mins or until mixture thickens slightly. Pour over the base and bake for 5 mins or until the topping is just set. Cool in the tin. Cut into slices. Makes 24 slices.

I sifted some icing sugar over the top to make them a bit more mouth watering!


Chocolate Cheesecake Brownie
By Donna Hay

185g butter, melted
1/4 cup cocoa powder, sifted
1 cup caster sugar
2 eggs
1 cup plain flour (sifted)

cheesecake
285g cream cheese, softened and chopped
4 1/2 tablespoons caster sugar
2 eggs

Preheat the oven to 160 degrees celsius. Place the butter, cocoa, sugar, eggs and flour in a bowl and mix well until smooth. Spoon into a 20cm square slice tin lined with non-stick baking paper.
To make the cheesecake, process the cream cheese, sugar, and eggs in a food processor until smooth. Place large spoonfuls of the cheesecake mixture on top of the chocolate mixture and swirl with a butter knife. Bake for 45-50 mins or until set. Cool in the tin. Cut into slices. Makes 16 slices.

I only used 250g of cream cheese and it tasted fine! A bit of sifted icing sugar over the top is optional.


Eh Voila! Bon App├ętit!
