Lemon Crumble Slice

I absolutely love this recipe for Lemon Crumble Slice. It’s by far one of my favourites (and that’s really saying something, given my addiction to all things involving sugar). I love this slice because not only does it have the yummiest oaty layers, but it seriously has the most amazingly creamy and delicious lemon filling. Creamy + lemony + oaty = all kinds of awesome.

  1. ok so I’m confused, at number 11 you say to spread half of the crumb mixture into the tray, are we then supposed to side aside the other half? or do we leave it in there & zest the lemon on top of it? The instructions aren’t clear.

      Yes you set the second half of the crumble mixture aside (as that is what you crumble over the top). The lemon zest forms part of the middle (the creamy portion).

      Hi Tammy, I’m not sure as this is the only way I’ve made it. You could try experimenting though!!

      I personally dont like to freeze this slice as I have found that the filling can go a bit runny when defrosted. That being said, I know other people who are happy freezing it!! xx
