Lemon Tiramisu

I wanted to make a special dessert for my mom. She loves tiramisu. But, unfortunately, she can’t have caffeine anymore; it gives her migraines. So, I made the Lemon Tiramisu. Light and airy, this special dessert is perfect to end any meal. Check out the whole Christmas Breakfast menu here.

  8. ¼ cup lemon juice

Ingredients
  1. 4 large egg yolks
  2. 3 large eggs
  3. 1/2 cup fresh lemon juice
  4. 1/2 cup (1 stick) unsalted butter, diced
  5. 1/2 cup sugar
Instructions
  1. Whisk yolks and eggs in medium bowl to blend. Set aside.
  2. Combine lemon juice, butter, and sugar in large metal bowl. Set bowl over saucepan of simmering water; whisk until butter melts and sugar dissolves.
  3. Gradually whisk 1/3 of hot butter mixture into eggs, whisk mixture back into bowl with remaining butter mixture set over simmering water. Whisk constantly until custard thickens and thermometer inserted into mixture registers 180° F, about 5 minutes (do not boil). (If you don’t have a candy thermometer, wait until the mixture thickens and coats the back of a wooden spoon.)
  4. Pour lemon curd through strainer set over medium bowl. Place plastic wrap directly on surface of lemon curd; chill overnight.
  5. Can be made up to 1 week ahead. Keep refrigerated.
Notes
  1. This recipe will make more lemon curd than you need for the tiramisu. Package it in a pretty jar as a gift, or keep it for yourself to eat with biscuits, scones, or crackers.

    Oh my, this looks incredible! I’m not a big eater of chocolate so I usually make a strawberry tiramisu, but my lemon-loving family is going to go ape over this! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe! :)

    This looks so good!

    I can’t have caffeine either.
    I use cocoa.
    Chocolate can give me a migraine too, but it doesn’t with my Tiramisu.
    I don’t think the amounts are enough to trigger one.
