Tartlettes Au Citron, AKA: Another Lemon Curd Fail

July 26, 2012

I honestly don’t know what is wrong with me. This is the second time I’ve tried to make lemon curd and it turned out bad. Like, gelatinous bad. I don’t throw the word gelatinous around with ease.

It more than likely wasn’t the recipe since I’ve already had a fail with lemon curd. In fact, the pastry was really nice, like a shortbread. The curd? I dunno what the hell happened. It was going nice and smooth then the next second it curdled and turned into a mess. I was stirring and it was wonderful. Then it was gloop and meh. *sigh*

I pretty much have an endless supply of lemons so I can keep trying. Anyone have a nice vegan lemon curd recipe I can try to destroy?

    What a bummer! I wonder what happened? This one got tested a lot and no one ran into issues like you did, so I’m scratching my head. Was the heat too high, perhaps?

      It was 100% me, please don’t blame the recipe. It could have been the heat or I added the cornstarch too late. Since I can finally make pancakes I needed a new nemesis anyway 😉

        Ha, I’m still pretty hopeless with pancakes, I have no patience for them. For shame.
