I was so pleased that we had a Martha Monday’s project this week. I felt the need to reconnect with the kitchen after being absent for over a week and to do a dessert was the icing on the cake – so to speak.
Sara chose this dessert, and it is wonderful.
Simple ingredients – egg yolks, lemon zest, cornflour, sugar, salt and milk
After the addition of extra milk the mixture is brought to a simmer
It was easy to do to and I was pleased that I kept an eye on the simmering liquid as within seconds it turned to a thick custard consistency.
Custard-like before adding the lemon juice off the heat
I halved the recipe and it all worked out fine. It is a beautiful yellow colour and we could all taste the lemon really well.
A great Martha Monday’s pick. I can’t wait to see what everyone else thought.
