Elderflower Lemon Curd

Desserts & Chocolate
Elderflowers add honey and lychee floral notes to traditional lemon curd. I make my elderflower syrup with oranges and lemon so it’s delicate, but complex. I rolled it in the crêpes and drizzled in on the whipped cream for my elderflower lemon crêpeterrine cake recipe.
