I had this fabulous lemon tart while on holiday in Amsterdam. It was so different to the lemon-curd style tart that I'm used to in Montreal. It was very soft and tender, consistent, sort of eggy/cakey (maybe a bit like a clafoutis, but not at all gooey), and very deliciously lemony. You can see how it cracked in the cooking process, and it didn't really have a crust or shell. I would love to find a recipe for this type of lemon tart, but I have no idea where to begin.

That looks divine, Allison. We don't quite know where to start either, although hopefully one of the readers will recognize this sort of tart!
We do think playing around with a clafoutis recipe might give you some interesting results. Also, the other thing we immediately thought of was lemon pudding cake. What about trying that recipe and baking it in a tart mold?

Good luck, and please let us know if you identify the correct recipe; it sounds like something we'd love to try.
