lemon slice'n it up

I've made this recipe twice in one week now. Mmm. It's good. Nice lemony tang. First time I overcooked it a little (the time I give should be right now), but keep an eye on it as it browns quickly. I also added loads of shredded coconut to the topping on the first batch which was really nice too.

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line a 18cm x 28cm lamington pan. Lining it means you can lift the whole thing out to slice it after it's cooked.

1 1/2 cups plain flour
1/2 cup icing sugar
150g melted butter
Combine these together and press the mixture into the pan. Bake for 15 minutes.

400g sweetened condensed milk (low fat version works great)
1 egg
1 medium to large lemon - rind and juice
2 tbsp plain flour
1 tsp baking powder

Mix together sweetened condensed milk and egg, then add the rest of the ingredients and mix well until combined. Return to the oven and bake for about 20 minutes (watch it) or until the topping is set.

Allow to cool in pan. Refrigerate. Cut into squares and sprinkle with icing sugar before serving.
