Lemon Curd Teacake

It's been a baking kind of day or should I say few days.  Yesterday I made Mum's Custard Cakes which are so good that my daughter and I will be baking another batch Saturday ready for Father's Day.  This morning I packed a platter full of custard cakes for my husband to share at work.  I received a text later to say they were very well received.  I think it's important for them to come together in the office for a tea/coffee, chat, forget about work for a while and enjoy some homemade cakes.

I did leave a few cakes at home for the kid's afternoon tea so everyone's happy.

This afternoon I had plans on making something with lemons as I now have two large bags from Mum.  I remember making this Lemon Curd Teacake when we had an abundance of lemons last year.   I use the Bellini to make ours following a recipe I found on the Thermomix Recipe Community site.

Lemon Curd Teacake



You can make this without a Thermomix or Bellini following the original recipe on the Make It Perfect site.

My Bellini version.

Ingredients for Cake Mixture
150g self-raising flour
60g butter, chopped
110g caster sugar
1 egg, room temperature

Ingredients for Lemon Curd
60g fresh lemon juice
60g butter, chopped
110g caster sugar
1 egg, room temperature

Preheat oven to 180°C.

Grease and line a round cake tin.

Cake Mixture Instructions
Place all of the ingredients into the Bellini bowl in order listed.  Beat for 30 seconds on speed 5.  Scrape down sides of bowl and repeat.  Remove from bowl and set aside.  I then gave the bowl and good rinse and wipe down.

Cake mixture.
Lemon Curd Instructions
Place all ingredients into the Bellini bowl in order listed.  Cook at 100° for 5 minutes on speed 3.

While the lemon curd is cooking spread half the cake mixture into the base of prepared tin.  I had a small bowl of water on the side so I could moisten my fingertips which makes spreading the mixture a lot easier.

Half of cake mixture in base of pan.

Pour hot lemon curd over cake mixture.  

Homegrown lemons have such a vibrant colour.

  Dollop half teaspoons of remaining cake mixture over lemon curd.  Once again having damp fingertips helps.

Ready for the oven.

  Bake for half an hour.  Remove from oven and let sit in pan for 5 minutes before carefully placing onto a wire rack to cool.

Enjoy warm or cold.

    1. My pleasure Meg. I am thinking of freezing lemon juice in ice cube trays. How do they go defrosted? I'm assuming not watery.

    1. I thought someone may have known this recipe Fiona as it is quite popular. A friend of mine showed me the recipe last year and it's a keeper. I like the sounds of your combinations too.

  4. HI Kylie,
    This sounds like a brilliant recipe. Certainly will be giving it a try.. I have lots of lemons!
    I freeze lots of juice in ice cube trays. I empty the cubes into zip lock bags and use as required. (Apparently the juice "evaporates" and disappears if left in the open trays in the freezer - I was told this so always put mine in the zip lock bags). I cannot tell the difference between the frozen and fresh juice. If they stay in my freezer quite awhile they tend to stick together and get a bit of "freezer ice" around them but they work fine for me. I have had cubes in the freezer for months and all is good with them. Really can't wait to try this cake. I found a vintage Women's Weekly "100 delicious biscuits and slices" cookbook in an Op Shop...lots of simple and potentially very yummy things to try. Keep up the great work. Your blog is wonderful. Cheers
