I'm making Lemon Tiramisu tomorrow and need lemon curd in the mix. I chose this recipe because it was an NZ one and I know the chef-having never made lemon curd before, I had no other reason to choose the recipe. I'm glad I did because it turned out super simple to make the half quantity, and to make, and it tastes great. I could just sit and scoff the bowl right now and ner mind the tiramisu!
