Syrupy satsuma shortbread slices

Servings 12
Author Lakeland


For the shortbread base

  • 75 g caster sugar
  • 150 g butter, at room temperature
  • 1 tsp finely grated lemon zest
  • 225 g plain flour
  • pinch of salt

For the topping

  • 20 g butter
  • 20 g caster sugar
  • 2 tbsp golden syrup
  • 4-5 satsumas, tangerines or 'easy peelers', peeled and sliced


  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C/Gas Mark 4. Put a Lakeland glass fibre silicone rectangular pan onto a baking sheet.

  2. Cream the butter and sugar together until combined (there’s no need for it to be light and fluffy). Add the lemon zest, then work in the flour and salt with a wooden spoon. Knead for a few seconds until smooth. Press over the base of the tray in an even layer, using the back of a spoon. Bake for 20 minutes.

  3. While the shortbread is baking, put the butter, sugar and golden syrup into a frying pan and heat gently until melted. Add the fruit slices and bubble gently for 4-5 minutes, until syrupy and just beginning to caramelise.

  4. Remove the shortbread base from the oven. Arrange the fruit over the surface, spooning any syrup over the top. Bake in the oven for 5 more minutes. Cool, then cut into 12 slices.
