About this recipe: Simple and delicious! This lemon tart is soooo easy that it's foolproof. You could also use limes to make a lime tart. The combination of citrus with sweetened condensed milk makes the milk thicken, giving you a luscious texture that is easy to achieve.


Serves: 6 

  • 1 pack of digestive biscuits
  • 70g butter, melted
  • 1 (397g) tin sweetened condensed milk
  • 2 eggs
  • 3 lemons

Prep:15min  ›  Cook:10min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Preheat the oven to 180 C / Gas 4.
  2. Crush the biscuits to fine crumbs, then add the melted butter and mix. Press into the bottom of a tart tin by pressing the mixture with a glass or the palm of your hand.
  3. Pour the condensed milk into a bowl, add the eggs and mix well. Zest one lemon, and set aside. Juice the 3 lemons and add the juice slowly to the milk while whisking; the mixture will thicken. Add the lemon zest, then mix.
  4. Pour the lemon mixture over the base, and bake in the oven for 10 minutes.
  5. Cool, then refrigerate before serving.

I love this recipe. It's really foolproof and the end result is delicious. It's quick, tasty and guests always ask for seconds- what more can you ask for? - 09 Jan 2013


This tart was lovely and very easy to make.I used half a large pack of digestive which was enough base and sprinkled it with icing sugar to finish. I will definitely make it again - 07 Mar 2011


I have made this recipe so many times but never reviewed it. It is absolutely delicious and so easy to make with minimal ingredients (and hardly any washing up!). I have been complimented on it by lots of friends who regularly ask for the recipe. The only change I make sometimes is to used crushed Oreo biscuits for the base. Both variations are fantastic. Thanks for the recipe! - 26 Nov 2012
