How to make a perfect Creamy Lemon Slice…

To make this Creamy Lemon Slice, you simply mix the crushed biscuits and melted butter together and press into a slice tin. Bake for 10 minutes and then take out of the oven. Meanwhile beat the lemon juice, sweetened condensed milk and eggs together, pour over the top of the base and then bake for a further 15 minutes or until just set in the middle. I told you this was super easy, right!?

How long can lemon slice be stored for?

One your slice has been cooked and cooled completely, store it in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 5 days (but good luck resisting eating it all on Day 1!!!).

    What sort of sweet biscuits do you use for this slice?

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Tara, I used Arnotts Marie biscuits. xx

  2. Chris says:

    A huge fail for me as the egg, lemon juice and eggs didn’t thicken after beating for 10 minutes!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Hi Chris, it’t totally fine for the mixture not to thicken as it will set when baked in the oven, Mixing it is really just to get a nice creamy texture (but it wont really thicken). xx

  3. Sophia says:


    Turned out great! I doubled the amount but since I had only large eggs, I reduced the number to 6 eggs.
    Be sure to cool the cake in the fridge, as described. The lemon taste of the warm cake is a little bit weak but the taste of the cooled cake is just awesome!

    1. Lucy Mathieson says:

      Fantastic!! Thanks for the tips! xx

      1. Keshia says:


        Made this today after finding your site last night. I found the taste a bit eggy, so I might try 3 eggs tomorrow instead – maybe my eggs are a little big. Also never had lemon slice before, so it might be how it is meant to taste ‍♀️.

        So simple though, I’ll be taking in to work tonight for some of my work mates and customers! Trying the lemon coconut slice tomorrow! New favourite site for sure, thank you!

        1. Lucy says:

          Oh thank you so much!!! I’m so happy to hear that!! (And yes.. the creamy lemon slice is quite ‘eggy’ – kind of like cheesecake texture!
