Lemon Curd & Chocolate Brownies

I think I may have a slight addiction to all things lemony! Limoncello, curd, tart, cake, cupcakes, impossible for me to resist any of these things once the word lemon is in front of it. I am enjoying throwing together a batch of brownies and experimenting with different additions. This was a "sure we will see what happens" kind of recipe and it turned up trumps! The lemon curd kept the brownie very moist and gave it a nice tang. Hope you enjoy them!

For these delicious squares you will need;

175g sugar
175g soft butter
150g self raising flour
125g drinking chocolate
4 eggs
100g dark chocolate, in pieces
6tsp lemon curd

Preheat oven to 180 degrees and line/grease a brownie tin.
Mix together the sugar, butter, flour, drinking chocolate and the eggs until you have a runny mixture.
Fold in the chocolate pieces.
Pour into the brownie tin and swirl the lemon curd through the mixture.
Bake for 45 mins or until there is a slight wobble in the middle.
Cool in the tin for 30 minutes before turning upside down onto a wire rack and peeling off the parchment paper.
Turn onto a bread board once cooled and cut into 16 squares.
Dredge with some icing sugar and enjoy!

  1. Never thought to add lemon curd to brownies! I love anything lemony also so cant see me NOT loving this. Will have a trial run first with the dulce de leche I made the other day first though (gotta use it up, what a shame :P).
