Hello everyone. It's been almost A WHOLE YEAR since I've updated this space and I am really sorry for disappearing on you! It's just that I've been busy with school and stuff and time really flies by. Recently though, I felt like I'm losing touch with everything I love to do and I remembered this blog and how therapeutic and kind it has been to me. I promise I'll try to update more!
Before I rattle on with my sob stories let's Hoover this place up and visually devour LEMON CRUMB SQUARES.
|Pack first crumb layer, and then spread on the lemon mixture and sprinkle remaining crumbs on top.|
I left my camera on the table to clean up the dishes while the pan was in the oven and my brother decided to photo-bomb. Great. Now you're on my food blog Fariz.
|After baking, let cool for 30 minutes then refrigerate.|
I couldn't wait till it completely cooled and decided to cut myself a piece!
Sweet lemony richness sandwiched between an oat-ey crumble.
Pop pieces in between your afternoon tea or coffee. Yum.
Sorry for the different lighting! I was trying to get a good angle to photograph the baked good but it was getting dark and now my pictures have different colour treatments. But s'all good.
I used this recipe and dayum son it is delish! And easy. Really. I hardly broke a sweat making these babies.
And now you can too! (By the way my brother just asked for a second slice. Good news!)
