So, here we are again. It's my turn to pick a page and get baking, and the page I landed upon was Lemon Curd and Lemon Mascarpone Frosting! Boy, try saying that three times fast. Unfortunately, I am currently sat at my mums house, awaiting everyone to get dressed for a trip out to a lovely country pub for lunch so I'm unable to post the recipe. But I promise I'll get it up as soon as I possibly can :)
I made quite a few changes to this cake, primarily the frosting! As I'm going on holiday in a few weeks, heavy cakes and frostings are banned from my lips for the time being in order for my to fit into my new Floozie bikini. So, rather than making a tonne of delicious, lemony frosting that I just know I wouldn't be able to stay away from, I simply combined a little of the lemon curd with the marscarpone and used it to fill the cake. That's healthy, right? I also halved the recipe, baked it in one 9" pan and split it in two. Perfect!
One thing I can say is I sure am glad I made these changes because I just can't stop eating this amazing treat! In fact, I'm eating a slice with a cup of tea as I type this along with the rest of my family. There really is nothing like cake for breakfast on a Sunday :)
