Lemon bars (eggless)

These lemon bars look and taste like tiny pieces of cheesecake but the recipe is much much simpler aaannd its EGGLESS! 😀

I have always relished a delicious cheesecake and have also nailed a classic one which is soon going to be on the blog. But before that I wanted to post a simpler version of the cheesecake.

This recipe is inspired by Sam Her Blog is simply amazing and I give her the credits for posting this recipe because it was such a winner! This recipe is eggless, involves no cream cheese and is super quick to bake. The hard part is when you have to wait for 4-6 hours when it sets in the refrigerator. To be honest, I have never followed this step and even this time, we ended up having these lemon bars right after our photography session!

Other variation was replacing the graham crackers with our Indian style Good-Day buttery cookies. I made a smaller version of these bars, therefore I just used 100 grams of the crushed cookies and skipped the part of adding any sugar to it because these buttery biscuits are anyway too sweet.


Here is the quick recipe:

Lemon Bars (eggless)

Soft creamy tangy bars over buttery crust


Prep time: 10 mins

Cook time: 30 mins

Total time: 40 mins

Yield: 9 pieces

  • 100 grams Good day biscuits
  • 3 tbsp Melted Butter
  • 1/3 cup Sour Cream
  • 1 can/ 495 grams Condensed Milk
  • 1/3 cup Lemon juice
  • 1 teaspoon Lemon rind
  • for dusting Flour and butter
1. Preheat the oven to 180 degree celsius. Line the baking tin with paper and dust some butter and flour over it.
2. Crush the biscuits and put them on the baking tin and add the melted butter to it. Mix together and make a firm layer of the crushed biscuits and put it in the oven for about 7-8 mins. Keep an eye as they can quickly turn very brown and can burn.
3. In a bowl mix together the condensed milk, lemon juice, sour cream and lemon rind. Mix it very well and add it to the biscuit layer which should have been cooled down a bit (for about 5-10 mins)
4. Bake this for about 15 minutes or if you want them to be brown, bake further for 5 more minutes. Let it cool for about 10-15 minutes and dust with powdered sugar (optional) and place it in the refrigerator for about 4-6 hours. Serve.
