Lemon Cup Custard.....

This weeks recipe was chosen by Bridget of The Way the Cookie Crumbles. I did a half recipe because there are only two of us and I have a bodybuilding show in three weeks, eek! I love lemons, we have a tree out back, it's just not the right time of year for home grown fruit. This recipe used very few ingredients, just four, and was easy to assemble. My custards cooked much faster than indicated and looked so good. While the custards were chilling I read the Q&A's on this recipe and was disappointed at how many indicated it was VERY eggy; not what I was expecting. Also, several had said the custard did not have much flavor; I was happy I misread the recipe and had used the zest of a whole lemon, plus I used lemon oil. Well DH was looking forward to the lemon custard and couldn't wait until had finished the pictures to have a taste; he took one bite, said it was awful and gave it to me to try. I took a bite, thought of my mom's EGGY custard (which I hated) and threw the rest of the custards in the sink. Needed more lemon flavor or something. I guess I am more of a lemon curd type of person, oh well, you can't like everything!!!
This is all my DH would eat, and that's just not like him!!! Looking forward to next weeks French Yogurt Cake with Marmalade Glaze.

Beautiful pictures, at least! I'm more of a lemon curd person, too, now that you mention it. Maybe that was what I was hoping for somehow. Good luck in your bodybuilding show!
