In a food processor, blitz together all the ingredients for the biscuit base until it looks like fine breadcrumbs.

Tip the mixture into the prepared baking tin (it will seem a little powdery but it’s fine, don’t worry!) Press it in with the back of a metal spoon.

Allow to cool for a minute whilst we make the topping.

In a large bowl, whisk together the caster sugar, flour, eggs, lemon zest & juice. Allow to stand for 10 minutes then whisk again.
