No-bake lemon cheesecake bars. This is a proper, old-school, retro recipe, made with cream cheese, evaporated milk and lemon jelly (or jello, for my US readers). See, I told you it was properly retro!
But, you know what, it still tastes good. And it’s quick and easy to make. So it’s perfect for a simple summer dessert.
This is a very easy cake to bake. It’s tangy and moist and you can throw it together very quickly. Not literally. Don’t throw cakes. It’s a waste of cake.
This was a recipe in one of my ‘retro’ Northern Irish traybake books. Yes, I know, it’s not a traybake, but reading through the books, I spotted this and thought it looked interesting.
It pretty much is a Lemon Drizzle Cake and requires you to do very little work. You melt some butter and mix it with sugar, eggs and flour. It’s that simple! Then, when cooked, you top it with lemon juice and sugar.
Having made fifteens, I find myself with half a can of condensed milk sitting in the fridge. What to do, what to do?! While eating the remainder with a spoon would always be an option (a rather sticky, type 2 diabetes-inducing option), I decided to look for a different traybake recipe to make instead.
