Sweet Treat

Vegan Lemon Curd on Lemon & Poppyseed Muffins.

As a child my mum & I would often share a sweet treat of Lemon Curd sandwiches, on the freshest white bread my mum would heap a dollop of lemon curd, sandwich together and trim off the crusts. Even now I will often indulge in this childish treat. 
After finding this recipe I just had to try it out, I love baking & poppy seeds so this combination is just perfect.

Vegan Lemon Curd.

1/2 cup soy milk, plain
1/4 cup water
1 Tbsp corn starch
6 Tbsp sugar
6 Tbsp fresh lemon juice
