This is a nice quick recipe and one that is easily prepared from a jar of lemon curd. If it is homemade lemon curd so much the better (but why not ring the changes by making lemon and lime, grapefruit, lime, raspberry,strawberry curds etc etc etc). Its nice to have a simple recipe to make from a simple home made preserve.

200g/8oz jar lemon curd4-5 tablespoons of icing sugar
- In a large bowl whisk the cream with either an electric or hand whisk until the cream just holds its shape. Stir in the lemon curd and then split the mixture between 6 ramekins and smooth down the tops. Chill for at least an hour or overnight if you prefer.
- Preheat the grill. Sift a thin layer of icing sugar over each ramekin. Grill the mixture in the ramekins for 2 to 3 minutes. Alternatively use a Chefs blow torch until the sugar has caramelised. Serve immediately.
