Made it: Lemon curd

Lemon curd is one of those things I’ve always loved but for some reason assumed was overly complicated to make. Not so! It’s incredibly easy.

I set out to make this lemon cake recipe from Martha Stewart but was appalled at the number of eggs required for their lemon curd – eight! I really didn’t want to go to the grocery store, so I found this recipe from the joy of baking, which only calls for three eggs, leaving me two eggs for the cake.

I ended up creating my own combination: a lemon curd tart with lemon whipped frosting, topped with candied lemon slices.

Happy birthday to Comma Mister!
