  1. Hi there. Love lemon recipes. I live in a Fifth Wheeler RV with a smaller GAS stove (top and oven). What temperature would I bake it at please? And is it necessary to add the coconut? Thanking you 🤗 Irene

    • I just had a quick look at a conversion and it looks like 180 degrees Celsius is Gas mark 4 (350 Fahrenheit). I hope that helps. Ii haven’t tried it without coconut, but perhaps you could substitute it for ground almonds if you don’t like coconut.
