Expert Tips

  • If you can’t find lemon curd in the jams and jellies section of your supermarket, use 3/4 cup canned lemon pie filling instead. The only difference is the mousse will be slightly softer.
  • Top this luscious cake with thin slices of lemon and fresh raspberries.
  • Lemon curd is a rich, tart custard made with sugar, lemon juice, lemon peel, butter and eggs. Although you can make it from scratch, it’s much easier to pick up a jar in the jams and jellies section of the supermarket.
