Recipe review: Easy Lemon Tart; Nifty but Thrifty, p 25
« on: November 29, 2015, 05:51:26 am »
This made a delicious, "tarty" lemon tart with lots of zing!  Apart from my comments on the Vanilla Bean Pastry (see that separate recipe review), this recipe was easy and worked beautifully. 

I didn't use the optional lemon oil since I didn't have any.  The flavour of the tart was very intense, and I don't know that the oil is really necessary.  I didn't have golden caster sugar, so I just used raw sugar and turned it into caster sugar in the TMX beforehand. 

I did find that the recipe made a lot more mixture than what would fit in my 23cm flan tin, (which is the size specified), so make sure you use a fairly deep tart tin, or a slightly larger one.  I just put the extra mixture into a ramekin (without pastry base) and baked it at the same time as the tart, and it was lovely.

My mob really enjoy Lemon things Karen. Thanks for the review.

thats bit annoying that more mixture was made than required. I have so many things hanging around in my fridge I don't like to have to be inventive and come up with more uses if I've followed the recipe

 I do admit that I like the "eat it with a spoon" option Kimmyh.  I was a bit annoyed at first when all the mixture didn't fit, and I didn't have any pastry left to make another mini-tart (because maybe I had already eaten the pastry off-cuts!! :-))) but in the end it made a lovely lemony mini-pudding that I got to eat all by myself later on!
