Truth Universally Acknowledged

The title of this blog is an obvious reference to my favourite author, Jane Austen. My other great inspiration is Ella Fitzgerald. I intend this site to be general musings about things which interest me, and hopefully you as well.

Location: Auckland, New Zealand

I'm a girl in her twenties living in New Zealand - of Irish and Scottish descent. I'm married to a wonderful guy and we live in a tiny house in the suburbs with a menagerie of soft toys and model aircraft. My main occupations at the moment are attempting to become and author and surviving my day job... wish me luck!

Recipe: Citrus Tart

The great thing about this tart is that your don't have to bake it blind. You can make the base several hours or a day ahead if you like - but cover it in the fridge so it doesn't dry out.

Mix 125g butter, 1 cup flour and 1/2 icing sugar in a food processor. With floured hands, press the dough into a 21 cm loose bottom flan tin. Refrigerate for at least 30 minutes (it bakes best from cold).

Preheat the oven to 180 degrees celcius. Place 1 cup sugar, 1/2 cup lemon juice, rind of 2 lemons, 2 tablespoons custard powder and 3 eggs into the food processor and mix. Pour into the chilled base. Bake for 25 minutes until the pastry is crisp and the filling set. Dust with icing sugar.
