Insanely great lemon cake filled with velvety lemon curd ....this is totally addictive ...bursting with flavor .
2 small Eggs
Little more than 1/4th cup of sugar
40 ml Lemon Juice
Zest of 1 lemon
1 TBLSP butter cut into small chunks at room temperature
Get a water bath ready. In a steel vessel using a wire whisk , whisk together eggs , sugar , lemon juice and zest.
Put this vessel on the water bath and whisk for 7-10 minutes or until the mixture is thick and creamy . Be patient as if you undercook your lemon curd will taste of raw egg .
So let it cook through till nice and thick taste a little to check for no raw egg taste :). Take off the water bath .
Add butter . Whisk some more the addition of butter makes the lemon curd smooth and velvety .
This will thicken further as it cools .
To assemble :
Sweetened Whipped Cream
Lemon Curd ( From step 2 )
Lemon Cake ( From Step 1)
Lemon curls - To granish
Make sure your cake is cool . Slice through the middle using a string / knife.
Drizzle both slices with lemonade . Dont drench them just drizzle to moisten cake.
Put a layer of lemon curd in the middle of the cake.
Put the 2 slices together . Cover cake with Whipped cream. Decorate with lemon curls .
** Assemble cake just at the time of serving so that you dont need to put the cake in the fridge for too long ...it tends to go hard. So assemble very close to serving time :))
