3 cups Self-rising cake flour
3/4 cup unsalted butter
1 1/2 cup buttermilk
2 lemons, peeled, and sliced very thin, seeds removed
2 Tbsp plain flour
1 1/2 cups sugar
1 stick butter chopped small
1 1/2 cups hot water
Preheat oven to 375ºF.
For the pastry: Place flour in a bowl and cut in the butter until fine and crumbly. Don't overwork. Stir in 1 cup of the buttermilk. If you need to you can add the rest to make it stick together. Form into a mound on a floured surface, wrap and allow to rest.
Place lemons in an 8- x 11-inch pan. Sprinkle flour and sugar over lemons. Sprinkle chopped butter over lemons. Pour hot water into pan and add dash of salt. Flour hands and press out the dough big enough to cover the baking dish. Place the dough over the filling in the baking pan and fit to pan. After covering the filling cut 3 or 4 vents in the crust with a knife. Using a pastry brush gently brush the buttermilk over the top of the crust and sprinkle with sugar. Bake at 375 degrees for 30 - 35 minutes or until bubbling and browned. Serve warm. Great with whipped cream or ice cream!
