A Heavenly Dense And Tangy Glazed Lime Slice That’s Easy To Make

We recently had a family day out and went fruit picking at a local farm. After I directed us the wrong way (oops!) we finally made it to the fruit farm. Mandarins, lemons and limes were ready to be picked. We collected our buckets, had a sneaky taste test whilst picking them, then filled them with lovely juicy mandarins, lemons and limes.

This lime slice is dense and tangy – just delicious. It’s also pretty easy to make, as there’s no need for electric mixers at all. Simply stir it all together.

Glazed Lime Slice Recipe

  • 1 cup Plain Flou
  • 3/4 cup Caster Sugar
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 150g Butter, softened to room temperature
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 Tbsp lime zest ( roughly the zest from 2 limes)
  • 2 Tbsp fresh lime juice

Method

  • Preheat the oven to 320 degrees Fahrenheit or 160 degrees Celsius.
  • Line a slice pan with baking paper.
  • In a large bowl combine the flour, sugar and salt. Stir in the softened butter until this coats the flour mixture (do not beat the butter in with an electric beater – simply stir it in)
  • Whisk the eggs, zest and lime juice together. Stir this into the butter mixture until smooth and blended.
  • Scrape the mixture into the prepared slice pan, and bake in the oven for 25 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and cool slightly before pouring over the lime glaze.
