Lyndey Milan's Lemon curd tart

Preparation time
15 mins + 60 mins resting + 15 mins freezing
Cooking time
40-50 mins
Serves
6

INGREDIENTS

Pastry

1 1/3 cup (200g) plain flour

90g icing sugar

90g unsalted butter, diced

1 egg

1 tbsp cold water (optional)

Lemon Curd Filling

4 eggs

1/3 cup (75g) caster sugar

300ml cream

300ml lemon juice (2–3 lemons)

METHOD

1. For the pastry: put the flour and icing sugar into a food processor and very briefly combine. Add the butter and process until the mixture resembles breadcrumbs. Add the egg. When the dough balls together and clings around blade, stop. If this doesn’t happen add a little chilled water until it does. Remove, wrap in plastic wrap and refrigerate at least one hour or overnight.

2. Roll out the dough on a lightly floured board and line a high sided 24.5cm flan tin. Press gently into tin and use rolling pin to trim the excess from the perimeter. Prick all over with a fork, including the sides. Place in freezer for at least 15 minutes or until frozen (again overnight is fine). Place in preheated 200°C oven (180ºC fan-forced) and cook for 10–15 minutes until golden brown.

3. For the filling: reduce oven temperature to 170°C. Beat together the eggs and caster sugar until pale. Pour in the cream and finally, the juice. Pour immediately into the prepared pastry base and bake until just set, about 25–30 minutes.

4. Dredge with icing sugar and serve with whipped or thick cream.

Lyndey’s note: this is also delicious with lime juice. You will need about 7 limes.

ZUMBO
Words by Mark Hughes on 12 Sep 2016
Adriano Zumbo has taken desserts from the final course to the star of the menu. now he’s taking Sweets to the next level with his own TV show. It seems like only yesterday that Adriano Zumbo was introduced to the world via his amazing croquembouche creation on MasterChef. Since then, he’s become a household name. His Zumbo patisseries have popped up all over the country, he’s had successful cookbooks, magazines covers (including two spectacular ones with Selector) and now has his own TV show. His story is well known. His Italian-born parents ran the local supermarket in Coonamble, in the mid-west of New South Wales. As a bright-eyed boy endowed with the wonderment of Willy Wonka, one of his heroes, the confectionary aisle is where Zumbo developed his love for all things sweet. He moved to Sydney at the tender age of 15 to start an apprenticeship with stints at Georges and Neil Perry’s Wokpool before heading to Europe for the World Pastry Cup to train in some of the best culinary institutions in Paris. After a few jobs back home, he took the plunge and opened his own shop in the Sydney suburb of Balmain in 2007. It’s been full steam Zumbo ever since. Popularity for his croquembouche has been eclipsed by his marvellous and myriad macaroon creations and they are by far the biggest seller at his seven successful Zumbo stores. They are also the focus for his second cookbook, Zumbarons (see his master Zumbaron recipe next page). So with all of this attention, it seems only natural that the next progression was to host his own TV show.
