Diva Tasting:

Lemon Curd Pound Cake


5 ounces self-rising flour

4 ounces white sugar

1 stick unsalted butter

2 eggs, beaten

4 tablespoons lemon curd (heaped tablespoons)

2 tablespoons lemon juice

2 tablespoons superfine sugar

1 tablespoon lemon zest


Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F (175 degrees C). Line a loaf pan with parchment paper. Combine flour, sugar, butter, eggs, and lemon curd in a bowl or food processor. Mix well. Place into the prepared pan. Bake in the center of the preheated oven until a toothpick inserted into the middle of the cake comes out clean, 60 to 90 minutes. Blend lemon juice, white sugar, and lemon zest together in a bowl while cake is baking. Let cake cool in the pan, 2 to 3 minutes. Pour the lemon-sugar topping over the warm cake to let soak. Allow to cool, about 30 minutes. Turn cake out of the pan.
