Nuvojoy's madeleine premix is a baker's dream come true – fluffy, buttery, and oh-so-easy to use. But why stop at just classic madeleines? Let's push the boundaries with a stunning Lemon Curd Madeleine, inspired by the festive Christmas season, radiating with sunshine and flavour. It's the perfect way to impress your guests and infuse a touch of elegance into your holiday or gathering table.
For the Madeleine Dough Base:
1 package Nuvojoy madeleine premix
1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, melted and cooled
2 large eggs
1 teaspoon vanilla extract (optional)
For the Lemon Curd Filling:
1/2 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice (about 2-3 lemons)
Zest of 2 lemons
1/2 cup allulose
3 large eggs
1/4 cup unsalted butter, cubed
Preheat your oven to 350°F (175°C). It's time to whip up that base! Whisk together the madeleine premix, melted butter, eggs, and optional vanilla extract in a bowl until you have a smooth batter.
Grease your tart pan. Press the batter evenly into the bottom and up the sides of the pan, creating a beautiful tart shell.
Bake for 12-15 minutes, keeping an eye on it until it's lightly golden brown. Let it cool completely before moving on to the next step.
Now, for the lemon curd:
Whisk together the lemon juice, zest, allulose, and eggs in a bowl. Set up your double boiler and cook the mixture, stirring constantly, for 8-10 minutes until it thickens and reaches a custard-like consistency. Once it's ready, whisk in the cubed butter and let it cool slightly.
Carefully pour the cooled lemon curd into your baked and cooled tart shell. Smooth out the top and refrigerate for at least 1 hour, allowing the curd to set and the flavours to meld beautifully.
Voila! Your Lemon Curd Tart is ready to shine. Slice it up, serve it and watch your guests' faces light up with delight.
Tips & Tricks:
For an extra burst of citrus, sprinkle some additional lemon zest on top of the finished tart before serving.
Double boiler: Just grab a pot, fill it with water, and plop a bowl on top
