Toast Time

There's no denying that we beauty girls have rather a penchant for a couple of slices of toast in the morning.  After all, there's nothing better than a slice of freshly baked bread, a slick of butter (slightly salted naturally), and homemade lemon curd. We inherited this recipe from a Grazia Beauty Girl Mummy and it's really rather good. 

zest and juice of 3 lemons
225 g caster sugar
150 g butter
2 eggs
2 egg yolks

Put the zest, juice, sugar and butter into a bowl over a pan of simmering water.
Stir until the butter and sugar have dissolved. Beat the eggs together lightly, and sieve into the lime mixture. Stir continuously, until the mixture has thickened enough to coat the back of a spoon.
Pour into a clean bowl and leave to cool.
