Lemon curd is one of my favourite things. Every year I sandwich it between layers of whipped cream and fruits in our pavlova. You can spread it on friands or squeeze it into cupcakes. I've paired it here with my shortcrust recipe which you can find here. But the most exciting thing is that you can have it sitting peacefully in your fridge in under 5 minutes.
