It’s that time of year when Lemon trees around New Zealand are producing lots of yummy fruit. Sure, you could make lemonade or a gin and tonic, but I say when life gives you lemons GET BAKING! Why not try out one of these delish recipes:
Lemon meringue pies look tricky. Trust me, they're not. So simple in fact, that this is now quite often our go to dessert to make if we are in a rush and off to someone’s house for dinner.
These are super yummy. This is a fave recipe which I really need to get around to making and photographing again as this picture doesn’t do it justice.
Again, this is another beautiful recipe that I need to remake and photograph as the picture is rubbish. Trust me, the loaf it not :)
These are delicious and impressive. Fill them with your own home made Lemon Curd to really be fancy.
I love the texture that the poppy seeds give to these two recipes. The cupcakes are particularly divine – really moist and a nice flavour.
This lemon tart is just beautiful. If you really want to go for gold, you can make your own short crust pastry too (however, store bought stuff will work just as well).
How cute are these? They are almost too darling to eat. Almost.
This cake is beautifully moist. Who could resist tucking into that with a side or cream or yoghurt?
Here’s a couple of recipes to help you add a little something special to your baking:
Hopefully that gives you a few ideas on how to use your lemons up :)
