I don’t make as many biscuits and slices now as I did when my children were growing up.  I have more time than I did back then, but the idea of a quick slice still has a lot of appeal and the combination of coconut and lemon is always a winner.




When my children were at primary school I helped put together a cookbook as a fundraiser.  The school community were asked to send in contributions and we ended up with lots of great recipes.  The mother who sent this one in added the note about it being a good ‘first baking’ cake and it definitely is.  It’s been made many times in my household by both the kids and me. The added bonus is that it also tastes great.
