lemon curd is the topping of the cheesecake

We recommend serving the lemon curd with the cheesecake. The refreshing, tart topping of the lemon curd turns the cake into a summer cake.

Add the lemon zest and the butter in small pieces and mix until the butter has melted completely and you have a nice and smooth lemon curd. Cover with a piece of plastic wrap directly on the surface of the curd (to avoid the development of a skin) and let cool down. You can also fill it into glass jars directly and close them. The curd can be stored up to a week in the fridge. What do you use this delicious cream for? – Find out!
