I wanted to share this recipe for a long time but I’ve just not got round to it. It’s been in my family for a few generations and I absolutely love it. It always goes down well and it’s so easy to make. There’s no baking or weighing involved.
So here’s the recipe, I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!
The part of this recipe I enjoy the most is smashing up the digestive biscuits. Get a rolling pin and smash the shit out of them, until they’re all crumby.
- 1 pack of digestive biscuits
- 3 big tablespoons of margarine
- 1 standard carton of double cream (I use Elmlea)
- 1 standard tin of condensed milk
- Zest and juice of 3 lemons
Melt the margarine and add to the crushed digestives. Mix well and then press into a flan dish and put in the fridge to chill.
For the filling, whip up the double cream until it’s thickened up. This could take about 5 minutes with an electric whisk so persevere! Slowly add the condensed milk.
Add the zest and juice of the lemons. Give the mixture a good whisk as it can separate.
Pour the mixture in to the now chilled base and pop into the fridge. For best results leave over night but it’ll taste good after an hour or 2!
Sorry about the photos, they’re not really very informative but you get the idea!
