Every once in awhile a light bulb goes off on the baking side of my brain. And sometimes that light bulb ends up with awesome results like this one…..
I was having a pretty crappy day yesterday, but this is not the time or place for those issues….so when I have a crappy day I try to think of things that make me happy. I will also say it was a little gloomy yesterday too, and I was missing all the sunshine we had last week. So I decided to create some of my own sunshine, in the form of LEMON CURD. And even though I would be happy just eating said lemon curd out of the jar with a spoon….I figured the family would rather something else yummy for snack/dessert. And since this pound cake recipe turned out SO well, I decided to combine the two.
I bring you….Vanilla Bean Pound Cake, with Lemon Curd swirled inside. It is TO DIE FOR. Basically I just layered the pound cake batter with the Lemon Curd in between….and the curd stayed nice and soft. Just perfect.
If you are every having a bad day I strongly suggest you make some of this….you can’t help but smile at a bowl of bright yellow lemony goodness. Trust me. It worked for me.
Look at this cake:
