  • For a thicker icing, use only 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and only add more if needed.
  • This slice also tastes fantastic with no icing if you don’t happen to like icing.


  1. My mother used to make this slice and I love the sour lemon taste with the sweetness of the icing. It’s such a great slice because it doesn’t require any baking and like you say, is very quick to make xx

    • I love anything that’s quick and easy and this recipe certainly ticks both boxes! I love anything with a lemon flavour … so refreshing!

    Hi – how long does this keep? It’s Sunday night and I was thinking of making it for Tuesday lunch tonight.

    • Hello Di and thanks for visiting. This will keep for up to a week in an air-tight container in the fridge but it very rarely lasts that long in my house and gets gobbled up fairly quickly!
