Lemon custard slices

I am enjoying Robbie Cheadle’s project to create the perfect birthday cake as it means we get treated to some recipes along the way.. This is one that I could dive into right away… but it is breakfast time.. oh well why not!

Robbie's inspiration

Some of your readers will know that I am making my husband a meringue tower for his birthday day next week. The meringue tower requires six meringues of various sizes from plate size to donut size. That is a lot of meringue and as they take between three and four hours in the oven on a setting of 130 degrees Celcius, I started making them this week. Meringues keep really well so it is not a problem to start making them early. Meringues use egg whites only which left me with ten left over egg yolks. I don’t like to waste food so I looked for a recipe that used egg yolks and I decided to make lemon custard slices.


For the biscuit base:

625 ml cake flour;

1/2 teaspoon salt;

180 grams melted butter;

125 ml castor sugar;

15 ml lemon zest;

1 egg;

7.5 ml vanilla essence

For the filling:
