I made a lot of lemon curd. I’m thinking of making some scones to have with it. Possibly have it with crêpes tomorrow...what else can I do with lemon curd? Looking for foolproof ideas.

Lemon meringue pie, lemon curd ice cream.

I just used it like jam. On bread (sandwiches), in cakes or puddings.

Mix it with mascarpone and serve with fruit. It goes well with rhubarb.

Get a spoon!

Yes yes to hot buttered toast, pie filling, with yoghurt, between 2 sponge cakes before covering in buttercream.

It's lovely as a filling for a Victoria sandwich with a lemon drizzle topping

Add it to porridge smile

Use it in place of butter to make bread and butter pudding. Mega bonus points if the bread is panettone.

Mix with Greek yoghurt. Or just eat by the spoonful

Stir it in to lightly whipped double cream for the easiest mousse ever. Top with crushed shortbread.

Lemon curd, limoncello and meringue ice cream

Whip up double cream until stiff peaks
Stir in jar of lemon curd
Stir in 2 x shots of limoncello
Crumble up 2 x meringue nests, stir in

Line a loaf tin with clingfilm and pour in mixture. Freeze.

Puff pastry jam/lemon curd tarts. Better with a lid to stop the lemon curd catching.

Goingtothebudgies Wed 20-Jan-21 19:12:49

Homemade ice cream.

Goingtothebudgies Wed 20-Jan-21 19:13:43

Lemon curd frozen yoghurt would be great too.
I made a baked cheese cake with it the other day.

AdaColeman Wed 20-Jan-21 19:15:22

Spread on buttered stale bread to use in bread & butter pudding.

Serve with creamy rice pudding.

Swirl into readymade custard for a quick fruit fool.

Swirl into whisked cream and spoon over broken meringues for a lemon Eton mess, add a few strawberries or raspberries if liked.

Fill a Swiss roll.
