lemon curd bread sticks

I don't know many people who like lemon curd and I've also never been attracted to the title 'lemon curd'. Probably because of the curd part. When I think curd I picture coagulated milk in my head and that isn't pretty. It's not right at all.

You can get lemon curd at the supermarket but with just a few lemons, sugar, eggs and butter you can make a homemade version which is just as good - if not even better! I enjoy my lemon curd with a few toasted bread sticks but you can also have it with some plain pancakes or waffles.

This recipe isn't too sweet so the tangy and citrusy taste of the fresh lemons is still there.

  • 2 large eggs 
  • 4 slices of toast to serve with the lemon curd
  • what to do: 
    1. Mix together all the ingredients in a heat resistant bowl over a pot of simmering water.
    2. On a medium low heat, whisk constantly until the mixture thickens. 
    3. Remove from heat and refrigerate until cool. 
    4. Slice each slice of toast into 4 bread sticks.

    Hi there! My name is Anna. I'm nineteen, in my second year of uni (UNSW) and born in Sydney. This blog is about my gastronomic adventures in Australia and abroad. It all started when I got new camera (Samsung Ex1) and since then, I've been mainly taking photos of food. So, I decided to document everything on this blog.

    I'm still learning to take nice pictures - my camera isn't exactly the greatest but it works.

    Oh, and I think we should get this out of the way (just in case you decide to unfriend me) I'm not a fan of chocolate or coffee. (Yes you saw right).

    Anyway, enough about me - thanks for stopping by and I hope you enjoy!
