Thermomix Classic Lemon Tart

Classic Lemon Tart
This is great as a winter dessert. Lemons are currently in season so you can get them fresh from your supermarket. It’s deliciously tangy with a beautifully smooth texture, and the smell of it baking will warm your whole house!

1 batch short crust pastry (from ‘Everyday’ cookbook)
190g sugar
Zest and juice 4 lemons (approx. 160-180g juice)
5 eggs
260g pure cream
Icing sugar and mascarpone to serve

Prepare pastry as per ‘Everyday’ cookbook and form into a flat disc. Wrap well with baking paper and place in fridge for at least 30 minutes.
Pre-heat oven to 200ºC. Butter a 23cm flan t in with removable base.
Roll out pastry and line tin. Dock the base of the pastry with a fork and line it with baking paper. Fill with uncooked rice, dried beans or baking weights and blind bake for 20 minutes. Remove paper and weights and cook for a further 5 minutes or until golden on base. Cool slightly and reduce oven temperature to 150ºC.
To make filling, place sugar and zest into mixing bowl and mill for 15-20 sec/speed 9. Scrape down and repeat. (There is a lot of oil in the lemon zest which will prevent sugar ‘dust’.)
Add juice, eggs and cream and blend for 20 sec/speed 6.
Pour filling into pastry base and bake for 1 hour or until just set in centre. Dust with icing sugar and serve with mascarpone.

    Hi Simone, just made this lemon tart and we were very impressed with the result. the lemon filling is beautiful but thought that the pastry laked flavour, perhaps needing some sugar to make it sweeter as it was quite bland. Will try it again using a sweeter base but the filling is spot on!

    • Thanks so much for your email Angela. The Lemon Tart is a Thermomix Australia recipe so I haven’t tried it yet so its always lovely to get feedback before trying it. Some sugar in the pastry is a great idea – let me know how it goes if you try it!
      Happy cooking, SImone x
