lemonicious

So, I decided that recipe testing for cooking class using glut veggies to make a zucchini cake for my birthday was a little too multitasking to be special so I decided to make something I used to love to eat when I lived in an inner suburb of Melbourne. You know, the kind of place where you can't escape seeing a cafe from any given spot in the suburb but need to treck three suburbs away to get to a hardware store....

Anyway, I would spend Sunday morning dressed in regulation black (ironically of course) reading the (broadsheet never tabloid- come on) newspaper, drinking lattes (was never quite sophisticated enough to go espresso) and nibbling at a flavour explosion that is tarte citron which is inner suburb dialect for lemon tart.

I used this recipe and it was surprisingly easy. Easy and the ingredients were doable even up here in non-fancy supermarket land.

It was a little too delicious though.

And when M and A said they preferred zucchini cake and K said it was a bit rich for him... well I ended up eating criminal amounts of it.

But then I had to make up for all those years of paying $5 a slice for something that I could have and definitely should have made before now.

And it was almost kind of still within a coo-ee of my birthday, right?

Yummo, I still have 3 jars of lemon curd in the fridge that no one but me likes, next time I'll do this for a dessert and I won't have to share either. Oh for the small things in life!
