RECIPE: Coconut Lemon Slice

I am loving everything lemon this year, perhaps the aging taste buds or the new ones emerging, either way, lemons are a regular feature on my menu.  This zesty slice is super sweet and definitely not one for the lemon haters.  It was a hit at our last P&C meeting so I’m sure it would go down equally as well at the school fete, cake stall or morning tea at work.  Made in less than 10 minutes it’s bound to be your go to lemon slice recipe for years to come.
