Make your tastebuds sing with a little zing.
After the chocolate-rich winter months, there’s nothing we like more than a refreshing lemon dessert to reset our tastebuds. Lemon’s citrus power lets it cut through sweetness for a balanced dessert that keeps you coming back for more. Perhaps best of all, lemon desserts tend to speak for themselves, but pair beautifully with most other fruits if you want to kick your presentation up a notch.
Here are some of our favourite desserts from around the NEFF Kitchen:
Lemon Meringue Pie recipe
Starting off with something that looks a little bit fancy, a lemon meringue pie is a wonderful dessert to have in your repertoire. The golden peaks of marshmallow meringue look like a beautiful crown, balancing the tartness of the lemon with fluffy sweetness. Best of all? Using CircoTherm intensive allows you to cook the pastry without the need to blind bake, cutting down time and ensuring the perfect crust.
Lemon cheesecake recipe
This New York-style basked cheesecake is soft and decadent, with nothing but a few fresh berries to decorate it. The secret to the smooth, creamy baked filling is the use of a FullSteam oven. This allows it to be gently baked without going dry or grainy.
Lemon Blueberry Tart recipe
One of our favourite fruit pairings has got to be lemon and blueberry. Not only do their colours pop against each other, but their flavours mingle and balance each other out in a delightful way. While we love the simplicity of our Classic Lemon Tart, the carefully placed blueberries had an extra visual dimension.
Lemon, blueberry and white chocolate slab cake
Speaking of the beautiful pairing that is lemon and blueberries, we can’t go past this delightful slab cake. White chocolate adds a layer of sweetness to completely round out this flavour combination, while a drizzle of fresh cream makes it the perfect afternoon tea treat.
