This has been a favorite of mine ever since our 6-week driving tour of the British Isles in the 80’s. It is marvelous for use in desserts, but my favorite way to have this is with warm biscuits. I have since modified my recipe to be Atkins or Keto friendly. Love this with my Buttermilk Biscuits shown right. How about some for Valentine’s Day Breakfast this week?
This also makes a delicious cream filling for doughnuts, between layers of vanilla cake, pound cake or to make yummy lemon mini-tarts. As lemon and lime juice is limited during Induction to 3 T. per day, this recipe is only suitable for Induction if you don’t over indulge.
