READY IN: 25mins
Recipe by anny38

This is a recipe was given to me at a local show from the winner of the lemon curd section. Its easy and keeps quite well in the fridge. Can be used to fill sponges, but also great on toast in the morning.

Anny, I liked this recipe... easy to make, tasty and it's going into my recipe book and I'll try it again. I haven't compared it to any other lemon curd recipies yet and have decided recently to award 5 stars only to super exceptional recipies, so gave this a well deserved 4 stars. Lemon curd isn't a Dutch thing at all and with recipes like this around, what a shame ! I'll certainly be enjoying mine :)Thanks!
