Yep, it's the first of the month again, and that means it's time for the Sweet and Simple Bakes monthly recipe!!! (Although I have to admit that having made these a while ago, because they sounded so delicious, I subsequently forgot all about posting them until the last moment - d'oh!).
The Sweet and Simple bakes blog can be found here, along with all the rules and guidelines if you want to take part, and the recipe for this month's bake can be found here.
These really were simple to make, as the name of the challenge suggests. I'm not going to reproduce the recipe here, but recommend you check out the blog for the recipe. You can see an 'in process' picture above with the lemon curd in the half filled cases. Yum, lemon curd!!! It was hard to resist transferring the lemon curd straight to my mouth with the spoon, although I did take the lazy route and buy rather than make my curd. Homemade lemon curd would be even nicer.
These went down really well with colleagues, disappearing pretty quickly!!! They were very light, and the gooey centre provided a really yummy contrast with a good citrus kick. The topping was good too - another texture with a lemony crunch that topped off the muffin perfectly. Thanks for another great recipe Rosie and Maria.
Any suggestions for my leftover lemon curd, other than on bread with butter???
