Such a very easy and tasty recipe. Wish I had followed the video first as I overcooked in but at least I know for next time. But I can tell it is going to be excellent 2nd time round. Thank you for sharing Also added a lid of vanilla extract to give it a little bit more taste. I also put approximately 8 tablespoons of lemon as I love my sweet to be very lemony but it was still not overly citrusy.
Iv not tried this recipe yet, but you can be sure that I will do so, but as for the person who started their comment with. "This recipe is awful" Is quite frankly downright rude, and I suspect that this person is so negative about the recipe because they didn't follow the recipe as it was written. And after all, there was a video to accompany the recipe as well so how could anyone fail with such a simple recipe.
This recipe is awful. I was very excited to make one of these, as it's not normally my sort of thing to make. Because of this, I had no idea about what should be done. I followed the instructions, word for word, and my first problem was the pastry. I did what it said, but it turned out to be very powdery and dry. In the end I had to add water, and more butter. My second problem was the baking. I put it in the oven, and it looked like gloop 20 minutes late. I told my mother, and she told me that I needed to "Blind Bake" it, which wasn't something I was told to do in the recipe. I then was told that Gas Mark 4 was rather low for pastry, and it should be on at least number 5. Now, I've completely scrapped the pastry, as it is completely wrecked. I am now baking the Lemon solution, as I do not want to waste anything. Overall, a total disappointment.
The flavour was lovely but in retrospect I should have 1) blended the filling ingredients (I mixed them and put in the fridge for a few hours until I was ready to cook and it was a bit gloopy) 2) not used a deep pie dish. I like thick slices but it didn't cook very well so I had to keep it in for another 10 minutes.
