Blueberry & Lemon Curd Cream Tart

Blueberry and Lemon Curd Cream Tart Recipe

This blueberry and lemon curd cream tart is simply delicious and oh so easy to make. It's fresh, tangy and creamy. Ideal on a warm summers day, or simply as a treat.

Prep Time 30 minutes
Cook Time 25 minutes

Ingredients

For the Pastry

  • 500g (17oz) sweet shortcrust pastry, shop bought

For the Lemon Curd

  • 1 egg, beaten
  • 400ml (1¾ cup) double (heavy) cream
  • 1 lemon, zest and juice
  • 2 eggs
  • 85g (½ cup) caster sugar
  • 50g (¼ cup) butter, cubed
  • 1 tbsp icing (confectioners’) sugar, optional

For Decoration

  • 200g (7 oz) blueberries, fresh

Instructions

  1. Preheat the oven to 180°C, 350°F, gas mark 5.
  2. Roll the pasty to 3mm thickness and transfer to a 35×10cm (approx. 14×4in) fluted tart tin and gently prick the base, cover with baking paper, fill with baking beans and blind bake for 20 minutes. Remove the baking paper and beans, brush with the beaten egg and return to the oven for a further 5 minutes, then leave to cool on a wire rack.
  3. Meanwhile, make the lemon curd by adding the lemon zest and juice, caster sugar and remaining eggs into a heatproof bowl over a pan of simmering water. Whisk continuously until the mixture begins to thicken, then slowly add the cubed butter and continue whisking for a further 10 minutes (it should thicken slightly further, but don’t be afraid as it thickens more as it cools). Set aside to cool covering with plastic wrap so it doesn’t form a skin.
  4. Whip the cream to soft peaks and set aside until everything has cooled.
  5. To assemble, remove the pasty case from the tin and spoon a layer of lemon curd over the base, and lightly fold the remaining curd into the cream. Add the cream to the base and decorate with the blueberries.
  6. Optional: Finally, dust with the icing (confectioners’) sugar, and serve.

    Oh my WORD this looks divine! I cannot tell you how many times I have been in the UK in the middle of Summer and.... yeah it's a little "chilly" compared to our sweltering FL temps, which is always a pleasant welcome. This would help us beat the heat over here and I need this in my life NOW. Pinned!

    1. Lisa — June 13, 2014 @9:46 pm Reply

      Haha, that made me giggle. I wouldn't describe it as chilly as the moment, but then in comparison I guess it is! :lol: Sucks that most homes don't have AC though. People used to laugh at me when I came back from Greece to UK's version of 'hot' weather and would wrap up as though it was winter.

      Thanks for stopping by, Claire. Have a sweet day.
