PREPARATION

For the caramelized lemon:

Boil with plenty of water at 95° C for 12 hours. Pour off the water and remove the rest of the inside skins. Boil the lemons in syrup at 95° C for 12 hour then drain off the syrup. Carefully remove the remaining white skin. Reduce the syrup by boiling it at 104° C. Add the lemons once more to the syrup and just bring the mixture to the boil. Refrigerate for the night.
For the lemon sorbet:
Blend all the ingredients and freeze. Blend the mixture in a Pacojet food processor. Freeze again for at least 6 hours.
For the glazed cake:
Boil the sugar in water then mix with the brown butter in the food processor.  Set aside at room temperature.
For the cake:
Soften the butter and add the rest of the ingredients. Mold a 3.5 mm. sheet with a cylinder. Bake at 160° C for 15 min. Cut into 20 x 1 cm. pieces.  Glaze the dough with a brush. Bake again at 160° C. for between 5 to 7 min.
