Also, some of you may have noticed I am on a lime theme at the moment and I would like to thank Gunnar from Gastronaut Adventures for his recipe for lemon and lime curd which was my original inspiration. I will be using it as a key ingredient in my next two cakes.
I adapted the recipe ; using eight limes since we have such small ones here in the UK (no more jokes please) ; mixing half the butter at the beginning and the other at the end of the recipe; 1 cup (8 oz/ 225g) of sugar and six eggs. I still have the old Good Housekeeping recipe for lemon curd that calls for a hefty 2 cups of sugar to 4 lemons > < .
|The recipe makes quite a large jar of Lime Curd but you can have it on scones with cream and on shortbread too!|
I also referred to a recipe from One Perfect Bite called Adam's Curd which gives another technique for making lime curd . In fact, I hung around Mary's blog for quite awhile something to with Key West Lime Bars and other lime goodies. That's enough liminess from me now, thanks to my Foddbuzz Foodies for sharing your recipes.
