I love foods with contrast. Sweet and salty, creamy and spicy. Those for me are the most interesting things to eat. Which is why I love using lemon in my baking. The fresh acidity cuts through the fattiness in some cakes and balances out the creamy icings. So I’ve gathered my favourites to give you 7 tantalising easy lemon recipes.
I love a tray bake and this Lemon curd one is a real crowd pleaser. Perfect to slice up quickly and feed a crowd. Using lemon curd butter cream icing on the top brings a refreshing hit. Perfect on an afternoon with a cuppa.
Looking for a quick way to start your day. Or perhaps you’re worried your not getting enough protein in your vegetarian diet. Even if you answered no to both those questions.I’m sure you’ll love this Lemon and poppy seed protein muffins
Want a tasty and classic pud? You couldn’t go far wrong with this Lemon and ricotta baked cheesecake
I love Lemon meringue pie and often offer it as an alternative at Christmas to Mincemeat tart. It’s so good people often have a slice of it as well as the mincemeat tart! Plus it really isn’t as hard to make as you might think. Even easier if you have a microwave.
My final dish in my list of easy lemon recipes. Is my Spanish lemon and almond cake when on holiday in Spain I ate loads of this cake and just knew I had to recreate it when I got back. It’s like sunshine in every fork full.
