I need a lemon curd and raspberry filling for two cakes for this Sunday. My dad and son will be celebrating birthdays on Sunday along with mothers day so I want to make two special cakes. One white with a 7 min frosting with the lemon curd. The other dark chocolate with the raspberry filling with a ganach frosting. I am in need for some really good homemade recipes. Also if you could direct me to the 7 min frosting recipe that would be great or if you have tried something that works good with the white cake and lemon curd.
I can't help with the raspberry, but I've made this Lemon Curd recipe and it was a hit.
6 tbsp butter
2/3 c fresh lemon juice
1/2 c sugar
1 tsp lemon zest
Over low heat, melt the butter. Add remaining ingredients and whisk continuously for 8-10 minutes, until it forms a custard. Allow to cool, then pour into a jar and refrigerate. Curd will thicken considerably as it cools.
That sounds like a great recipe for lemon curd.
If you do a search of the recipes you will find several for a raspberry filling and there are several threads on this also.
I know you said homemade but the Polaner All Fruit seedless raspberry stuff in the jelly aisle tastes really nice in a cake...its not the super sweet "jelly" taste but a nice raspberry filling. Nobody ever knows its "jam".
