Looking at produce in season at the moment, I noticed limes. We are fortunate to be receiving plenty of these from our local veg box, CERESFairfood. I never seem to struggle thinking up various ways to use them, but more often than not, it is in a savoury dinner dish.
I wanted to branch out and use lime in a sweet dish. Lemons I use all the time, but limes, not so much. So I experimented and made a slice with limes and white chocolate. Originally, I was envisaging a brownie (or blondie) type concoction, with ooziness and a fudgy centre. But it didn’t turn out that way the first time I made it, it turned out even better!
This slice is crispy, tangy, crumbly and flavourful. This slice is so fresh, so light, it just seems perfect for the weather we’re having at the moment!
