Double Lemon Slice

mouth watering vegan lemon slice on plate with a cup of tea on side

If Sansa Stark lived in Australia, this would be her go-to dessert. Lemon slice, but with an extra punchy zing that only lemon myrtle can deliver — and on top of that, it’s super easy to make!

Recipe: Simon Toohey

Directions:

  • 1Grease and put baking paper in a 19 x 19cm tin.
  • 2Blend the biscuits and the desiccated coconut to a rough crumble.
  • 3Add the condensed oat milk, margarine, lemon zest and lemon juice and blitz until combined.
  • 4Pour the mixture into the prepared tin and press down firmly to form a nice solid base.
  • 5Add the icing ingredients (making sure you sift the icing sugar) to a warming pan, then mix together on low heat until it's all melted and combined.
  • 6Pour the icing over the base, and quickly tilt the baking tray in all directions to ensure the icing spreads to all the edges and corners before it cools. Place in the fridge to set.
  • 7Add a verrrry light dusting of lemon myrtle powder on top if you like — and slice into pieces to serve :)

*Variation: *Condensed coconut or soy milk will work too if you can't find condensed oat milk!
