Citrus Slice

Recipe and Images by Yasmin

I have modified a slice recipe to accommodate my love of citrus flavours; producing Citrus Slice. This is a delicious slice to share amongst friends for afternoon tea.

For base and topping:
  • 1 cup SR flour
  • 1 cup plain flour
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 100g butter
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2 tblsp milk
For filling:
  • 100g butter
  • 1 lemon, grated rind and juiced
  • 1 orange, grated rind and juiced
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 large eggs, lightly beaten
For base, mix the sifted flours and sugar in bowl. Grate in cold butter, then rub it in until it resembles rolled oats. Make a well in the centre and add the lightly beaten egg. Add just enough milk so that the particles will stick when pressed, making a dough. Press 3/4 of this over the bottom of the pan, keeping the rest in the fridge to crumble on top.
For filling, melt butter on stove on a medium-sized pot. Take off heat. Mix in the grated lemon rind and juice, grated orange rind and juice, sugar and eggs, then heat again, stirring constantly, until first bubbles form. Pour it evenly over the base and crumble remaining dough mixture on top.
Heat oven to 180'C and bake slice for 35- 45 minutes, until golden brown, with centre almost as firm as the edges. Remove from loose bottomed pan. When cool, dust with icing sugar (optional).


  1. So you like citrus a lot? I like it in the form of oranges :)

    I know, Alien Force rocks! I especially love the new aliens, and Swampfire is on the top of my list. And I tend to call Kevin as Kevin Levin instead of Kevin 11, because 11 seems so mean as he doesn't have 11 aliens stuck with him. He's actually my favorite character, because he likes to hit things. And he's way funny. Who's your favorite character and alien? And I'll have to say Vulkanus is my favorite villain. Yours? Poor Grandpa :) Though I agree about his cooking.

    Hahaha! I usually go to get iced water form the fridge, not food xD

  2. YASMIN!!!!!!!!!!! Check out the good - no, GREAT - news!

  3. I know, I was really happy! I've watched Season 1 before, but missed out on Season 2 and 3, so no wonder I wanted the show back! But they're still not broadcasting Teen Titans and Scooby Doo.

    Nothing happened to the bike - it didn't even fall! :D And totally agreed about the war wounds! :P

  4. And hey, I just wanted to inform you that I changed my blog's URL (yet again) and now, it's
