Lemon Crumble Bars
These are definitely going to put a pep in your step. Buttery crumble biscuits with a smooth and sharp lemon filling. A lovely afternoon treat, best served with a cup of tea.
For the crumble:
Light brown sugar

1/4 tsp baking soda
Unsalted butter, room temperature and cubed

1 tbsp lemon zest
You will also need:
20cm square baking tin, lined with baking parchment

Preheat the oven to 180°C/160°C fan/Gas Mark 4.
Step 2 of 6
In a large bowl, combine the flour, oats, brown sugar, salt, baking soda, salt, and softened butter. Gently mix with a fork until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs.

Add half the crumble mixture to the bottom of the baking tin and press into an even layer. Bake for 10 minutes until golden brown. Remove and allow to cool.

Add the condensed milk to a medium-size bowl and pour in the lemon juice and lemon zest. Mix gently until the mixture has thickened (be careful not to over mix as the mixture will loosen).
