Quick food: Lemon curd by Majnouna Quick food: Lemon curd by Majnouna
:pointl: Check out the book!

I had no idea what lemon curd was before I tried making it for the first time. It's not part of the culture so I had literally never tasted it. OMG. So unbelievably tasty and easy to make, it's hard to believe anyone bothers to buy it premade.

I've used it inside cupcakes to great acclaim, but the dessert I received several requests to make again was a fruit tart: Prepare lemon curd and tart crust the previous day, then on the day you want it fresh, bake the crust fully, allow to cool, spread the lemon curd all over it and cover in fresh fruit (my latest combination was strawberry and kiwi.) Such a fresh, light dessert!

I tried this today, turned out pretty good, I think. (gonna use it for decoration on limoncello cupcakes tomorrow)
Though I looked on the internet for other lemon curd recipes to compare, out of curiosity. Apparently, most of them tend to use less yolk and more lemons (or something like that, different proportions anyway, like juice from 1 lemon per two eggs).
But this works. And it's delicious.
(Love the presentation of the quick food recipes by the way, so simple yet so clear).

I disagree with Saito20, as you pointed out to him, anything is fine in moderation, and a dab of this stuff will do ya fine. Take a bit and spread it on toast and it taste lovely. It gave me a fresh tasting, sweet treat and I already had all the ingredients in my fridge. :love: I need to try it in a bit of plain, greek yogurt, I bet that would be nummy!

Ok, I basically agree with that. Indulge once every several days, and it's ok as long as your average meal is healthy.

I actually have never managed to make lemon curd, something is wrong with the recipe I have. But I just need to try it again, maybe with this one. :D

Lemon curd has always been a bit of an enigma for me; one of the lost arts practised only by the old women in floral hats running the stall at the church fayre, along with all the cakes, jams and home-grown pickles. I never thought I could make it myself in my slummy little student kitchen. :D

Nice one!

I've used lemon curd as a filling in a cake. Then cover with the conveniently-called '7-minute frosting' :)
and it's a damn good one.

YUM! But what is 7-mn frosting?

cedrus Featured By Owner Jan 5, 2013
It's a form of meringue. Egg whites, sugar, water, and optional flavoring, whipped for 7 minutes. Not sure why 7, and not 6 or 8, but that's its name hehe.

What would the format be like? These cute little tutorials, or more professional? (Not that these aren't professional, of course.)

(my only suggestion would be maybe an ingredient list near the top)
