    Syn-free Lemon Curd
    Found this on another site so gonna give it a whirl - can also be varied for use as cake fillers etc

    Ingredients:
    3 heaped dessert spoons of sweetner
    1 lemon, juiced and rind grated
    2 large eggs
    2oz virtually/fat free fromage frais

    Method:
    1. Mix the sweetner and lemon rind together in a small-ish glass bowl (small enough to fit into a pan of boiling water later)

    2. Mix the eggs and lemon juice together then add to the sweetner and rind mixtue

    3. Put glass bowl over water in a pan and heat gently for about 10 minutes

    4. Whisk frequently until the mixture starts to thicken

    5. Once the mixture is fairly thick, add your fromage frais and mix in well.

    Tip: If desired, yellow food colouring can be added to make it look more 'lemon curd-ish'

    Variation:
    Exchange the lemon for orange
    and add a belgian chocolate Options sachet at the same time as the fromage frais. This could be a nice chocolate cake filling

    Let me know how you get on with this one and what you think!

    Enjoy!

    :D

    i tried this and found the fromage frais was not needed as it just turned it to a cream instead of lemon curd, 2tbspoons of splenda, juice and zest of a lemon and the yolk of an egg all mixed in a bowl over simmering water does the the job

    I made some Syn free lemon curd this afternoon but decided to cook it in the microwave instead. Gorgeous!! I put 2 large eggs and a teacup of granulated sweetener (or to taste) in a BIG microwave proof bowl and whisked it together with a hand whisk. Thought at this point you could add Butter Buds if you wanted. Then I added one teacup full of freshly squeezed lemon juice - this took 4 large lemons. Could add some grated zest too, I suppose, if you like. Anyway, I whisked it all together and cooked it on full power, stopping at one minute intervals to whisk it thoroughly so it didn't get any bits of egg cooking off and causing stringy bits! This took 8 minutes but, of course, your microwave might be quicker/slower. Waited until it was of a consistency to coat the back of a spoon and when it had cooled enough I put it into a covered bowl in the fridge, where it thickened up some more. Not quite as thick as shop bought but so much tastier! Thought I might try orange curd next time or even orange and lemon. Using some of this to fill a JS meringue nest (2.5 Syns) and will top with raspberries, as suggested by Debrigger. :D Might make a Half Syn Roulade over the weekend and fill it with lemon curd, raspberries or blueberries and a little sweetened Quark or WW crème fraiche (half a Syn per level tbsp.). Yum - the options are endless! x
