Step 2

To make the lemon curd, add the diced butter to a mixing bowl, along with the caster sugar and five eggs. In a separate bowl, whisk together the White Wings Cornflour and lemon juice. Once it forms a paste, pour it into the egg and butter mix. Place the bowl over a pot of boiling water and whisk together the items until they thicken. Once the mixture becomes thick, pour it into a bowl and place it in the fridge to cool down.
