Pink lemonade bars




  • 1/4 cup caster sugar
  • 1/2 cup butter, softened
  • 1 1/2 cup plain flour, sifted
  • 1/4 tsp salt


  • 1 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2-3 tsp lemon zest
  • 1 1/4 cups caster sugar
  • 1  cup strawberries, tops removed
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/4 cup self-raising flour
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tbsp icing sugar


Preheat oven 180°C or 160°C fan-forced. Line a 16cm x 26cm slice tin with baking paper and set aside.

Step 1: Using a food processor, process the sugar, butter, flour and salt in a bowl together for one minute. Press into the base of the slice tin firmly and bake for 17-20 minutes.

Step 2: Meanwhile, prepare the filling. Using a food processor or blender, puree the lemon juice, lemon zest, caster sugar, strawberries, eggs, self-raising flour and salt.

Step 3: Pour this mixture over the hot crust when removed from the oven.

Step 4: Return to oven and bake a further 25 minutes. Leave to cool and slice into bars. Makes 24. Sprinkle with icing sugar just before serving.
