This is a bit of a case of when bad photos happen to good food. I am always in such a rush to eat this, that I forget about trying to get ~the~ shot. You’ll just have to trust me that this is good. I’ll come back and update this photos for this gluten-free and vegan sticky date slice later. In the meantime, I’m going to share this recipe with you so you’re not deprived of something so tasty any longer.
The humble lemon tart is something I never thought I would eat again with the eggs involved (not to mention the dairy and sugar) but then I discovered agar agar and wondered if it could just happen for me.
Turns out it could. I started experimenting and here we are with a delicious lemon tart. The lemon component was the easy part. What I really struggled with was a complimentary base that wouldn’t overpower the delicate lemon. It didn’t need a raw cake base, it needed more of a shortbread-type base.
This no-bake lemon tart is incredibly easy to make. It takes about 10 minutes to get done and needs 1-2 hours in the fridge to set. I don’t know why I don’t make it more frequently.
