Ingredients

Topping

Method

1.Preheat oven to 180°C. Line a Swiss roll tin with baking paper.
2.Process the flour, caster sugar, butter and lemon zest until it resembles breadcrumbs. Tip into the tin and gently press down to make an even base.
3.Bake for 15 to 20 minutes until golden.
4.While the base cooks, make the topping. Beat the eggs with the sugar until light and frothy. Add the honey and beat until incorporated.
5.Stir in the lemon juice, zest, ginger and flour, then mix until combined.
6.Pour over the hot base (I do this while it is still on the oven rack to save spillage). Bake for 35-40 minutes until set.
7.Cool and cut into squares.

For clean edges, run the knife blade through hot water before cutting.
