Sometimes I surprise myself! July 5, 2011

I suddenly remembered this afternoon that Son No.2 has cookery tomorrow and requires ingredients for a lemon and orange drizzle cake. So I scoured the shelves and found almost everything, and thought that a quick visit to our local deli would provide the rest. But no! I was able to find eggs, lemons, even ground almonds, but no lemon curd. So I tried the local shop but still nothing. Then I seemed to recall a recipe for lemon curd lurking in a cookery book – how difficult could it be…!

I used this recipe from Rachel Allen and it worked!!
