Healthier Lemon Tart

My 2016 entry for the Eurovision party was this lower fat lemon tart on BBC Good Food, or tarte au citron seeing as I was bringing a French themed morsel to the party table. It uses low fat creme fraiche instead of cream but none of the party guests could tell it was a healthier take on the tart. I employed the services of Burford Brown eggs as I love the bright colour of their yolks and hope it produced a punchier looking dessert. I also increased the amount of pastry as in many of the comments people said they struggled to line the tart tin although I think my pastry could have been a little thinner.

Lemon Drizzle Cake

Spring is finally in the air despite the recent cold snap and lemon drizzle cake seems awfully springlike to me. I’m not really sure why but there is something about its zesty punch that just makes me think of spring. This lemon cake packs an extra lemony tang so if you prefer yours less punchy use the zest of one or one and a half lemons instead.

I have been making this for years and it also works well as an 8in/20cm round cake or double the ingredients for a mega tray bake lemon drizzle cake.
