I’m trying to make more things from the Riesberg Recipes cookbook. These are the yummy lemon custard bars. I made them using my mini muffin tins to create ready to serve pieces. The last time I made these I used my brownie pan and they ended up burning, so this time I really watched them closely since I was making them even smaller. I don’t think I baked them long enough as most broke in half. They still taste great!
Lemon Custard Bars
1 c flour ¼ c powdered sugar ½ c butter
Pat in 8” pan and bake 20 min @ 325°.
2 eggs 1 c sugar 3 Tbsp lemon juice
Beat until creamy. Fold in 2 Tbsp. flour and ½ tsp. baking powder. Spread over crust. Bake 25-30 min @ 350°.
If you need to get some milk used up this is a great recipe…if you only have 1 cup to use up. I must say I spent a busy Saturday baking and cooking, trying to use up some of the milk I have and just so there are some snacks around again. This is a straightforward recipe from Taste of Home, probably the Healthy Cooking magazine.
Lemon Poppy seed Bread
1¼ c flour ¼ c granulated sugar ¼ c raw sugar ½ c oats (recipe calls for oat bran) 1 Tbsp poppy seed 2 tsp baking powder ½tsp salt 2 Tbsp butter (unsalted) 2 Tbsp applesauce 2 Tbsp lemon juice (fresh if possible) ½ tsp lemon zest 1 egg 1 c milk
Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray 3 medium sized bread pans with cooking oil, set aside.
In a large bowl, mix together flour, sugar, oats, poppy seeds, baking powder and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk together milk, butter, applesauce, egg, lemon juice and lemon zest. Add wet ingredients to dry ingredients and mix just until dry ingredients are moistened. Spread batter in prepared pan. Bake for about 40 minutes, or until loaf is light golden brown and a toothpick inserted in center of loaf comes out clean.
Cool loaf in pan on a wire rack for 10 minutes. Remove loaf from pan and cool completely on rack.
Cover with plastic wrap and store at room temperature or in the fridge.
Well, here’s the end of weekend update… Photography didn’t happen this weekend and the cleanse lasted about 12 hours. We figured that we eat healthy enough already that we weren’t noticing much except we had to pee a lot more yesterday.
Today was slightly productive, I made dinner and a cake. With the cleanse I bought a bag of lemons and used them in dinner and to make cake. I also had some sour cream to use too. Not my best photo ever, but here is the great smelling lemon cake of the weekend.
The only complaint it’s ever had is that it looks like cornbread.
