Lemon Layer Cake with Blueberries
Cupcake Rank: 3 Cupcakes
This cake was sweet, lemony and yummy. The lemon curd was tart and combined with the blueberries it was a perfect mix. The blueberries burst in your mouth and brought back memories of summer. The cake only received a ranking of 3 cupcakes because the texture of the cake with the curd and blueberries was hard to palate. It was yummy but the texture wasn't my favorite. Anyway, it was yummy and would be a perfect summer party cake.
FOR THE CAKE
FOR THE LEMON CURD
mixture into the reserved egg yolks (This is necessary because if you pour the egg yolks directly into the mixture in the pot it yolks will cook instantly and become stringy and gross). Pour mixture into pan. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 2 1/2 minutes.Remove from heat. Stir in vanilla. Pour into a bowl; place plastic wrap directly on surface. Refrigerate until firm and cold, at least 1 hour (up to 1 day). Fold blueberries into curd; set aside. Trim top and bottom of one cake to be flat. Cut each cake in half horizontally. Set untrimmed bottom layer on a serving plate; spread with 1 cup curd. Repeat with trimmed halves for second and third layers. Top with untrimmed top layer. Dust with confectioners' sugar.
This cake was yummy and would be great for a summer party. The blueberries and the lemon curd was trully delicious. I wouldn't have thought of the combination but it did really work. It would also be good with raspberries.
