Recipe by Sonja (South Africa)
I tried this one on DH this weekend, he polished off more than half the tart! Serve it warm or cold with whipped cream. I used the peel of lemons, oranges and Satsumas, but any combination of citrus fruits can be used, or otherwise just lemon.
- 1 cup all-purpose flour
- 1⁄2 cup butter, melted
- 2 tablespoons sugar
- 6 citrus fruits, grated peel of
- 350 g caster sugar
- 6 extra large eggs
- 8 egg yolks
- 300 ml lemon juice
- 300 g unsalted butter
