Recommended Posts

made this in no time at all and it was surprisingly delish for something so easy!

9 inch tart/flan dish

sweet shortcrust pastry (100g plain flour, 60g butter, 25g sugar with 1 egg and a bit of cold water to bind)

make up the pastry and line the flan dish and blind bake.

 

for the filling;

1 tin condensed milk

3 eggs yolks

juice 3 lemons

 

I didn't have lemons so used lemon extract and a bit of jif lemon juice. I had to add a bit of milk and extra egg yolk to make up the volume but if you use lemon juice i should think you won't have to do that.

 

mix the condensed milk, egg yolks and lemon juice together, pour onto pastry base and bake for approx 15mins at 180.

 

This is a winner and next time I'm going to make home made ice cream to go with it!

Sounds terrific, and the perfect antidote to all the rich, heavy foods that usually end up being eaten at Christmas. Will give this one a go, thanks :D

you're welcome, the recipe came from another chicken friend, not sure if she uses the forum or not.

Yes, the tins are a standard size.

 

I made the lemon tart, it was scrummy :drool:

 

The only thing is, it has prompted a lemon dessert fetish :oops:

 

I made 2 lemon drizzle cakes last night (although one is for a Christmas party I am attending later :angel: )

I have had a senior moment and realised I have got the wrong milk. Added a sprinkle of sugar and said a prayer. Felt very cross till read CM had done my roll recipe and like it so cheered me up. I hope it sets. I know we all do daft things but its so annoying :oops:

cold, put it in the fridge when it's done and serve when nice and cold. Dust with icing sugar before serving, just pretties it up :D

Gave your recipe to YS to make to take with some other puds to a New Year's eve get together (we offered to do puds). When he made it he said that the mixture looked like baby sick without the lumps :vom::lol: . He was amazed when it came out of the oven looking lovely and it tasted lovely.

I have 3 egg yolks lurking in the freezer that I have been pondering what to do with - this sounds perfect! Thanks for posting.

 

Edited to add - I have now made this lemon tart for a family get together. It was fabby and went down an absolute storm! (I didn't let on how easy it was :lol: )

Made it for Christmas and kept the pudding for another day. Excellent thanks. Oh and made it again and ate it last night. It will become my signature dish I think. I need to stop s"Ooops, word censored!"ing the milk tin though!

This is what I made for Christmas dinner, thanks Poet :D

 

I made one in a tart tin for everyone, and a small one in a ramekin without pastry for me (coeliac :( ) I put lemon zest from one of the lemons in the pastry, and it got rave reviews from those who ate it :D

Just made this :D

It took ages to find condensed milk! Te$co don't have it, nor do Asda ... I think it was Morrisons that had it in the end :)

 

I took it out the over to cool and broke it in half! :roll:

Cooling down now but should be ok :lol:

Made this yesterday ready for visitors, who were then not able to make it :( . Strangely enough though, nearly half the tart has vanished, no idea where it went.... :oops:

Just thought I'd share a tip for the health conscious pudding eaters :lol: among us.

 

I've made this tart again with light condensed milk. According to the tin 0.2g fat/0.1g sat fat per 100g. Still tastes as yummy as with the full fat condensed milk.

 

Yes I know the pastry isn't exactly virtuous, but every little helps, surely???!

I made this again a couple of days ago - I used light condensed milk too :D

 

We made little ones which had a better texture this time, not sure why though :lol:
