I made lemon curd the other day. It had to be done, and it was delicious. I ended up with quite a lot of curd, and despite lovingly and liberally slathering it on pancakes most of last week, I still have a lot left.
|Delicious, delicious lemon curd.|
So, the obvious solution was to incorporate it into cake.
I decided to make a lemon Victoria Sponge. Instead of jam, I used the curd, and instead of cream, I used lemon buttercream. This was a stonking success. It's the perfect springtime cake, sweet and zesty, and the homemade curd makes a really standout filling.
