Lemon curd tray bake recipe

I love citrus in cakes. I like how it cuts through the sometimes overwhelming fattiness of a cake. Especially one that has buttercream on it. Don’t get me wrong I like cake because it has fat (and sugar) in it. But I don’t like how sometimes you can be left with a coated mouth. This lemon curd tray bake recipe is the perfect way to avoid that.lemon curd tray bake

It’s light and fluffy, easy to make and with the addition of buttercream topping and sprinkles. It’s a great crowd pleasing cake. Perfect for after school treat with a cup of tea or on a Sunday when you’ve got friends round.

I prefer to make my cakes as a all in one recipe in the food processor. It's much quicker and they come out just as good as the traditional creaming method.
