Lemon Curd Butterfly Cakes (Almond Flour)

Sharing is caring!

I have been enjoying a big jar of home made lemon curd recently slathered over anything I could eat, so decided to add it to my favourite almond flour cupcake recipe.   I made them into butterfly cakes as the “wings” seemed to fit just right over the lemon curd filling and more importantly, I thought that they looked cute!  To me, butterfly cakes were something that takes me back to my childhood as we used to bake this on a Sunday afternoon.   This is a lovely fresh cupcake that is full of the zing of spring!

One thing that I am learning about not making “traditional” cake batters, is that the healthy alternative is just so much easier!  Not of that beating and creaming…just mix, cook and eat!   You still get a lovely fluffy moist cake too! Who needs that nasty flour…bah!

    OH YEAH~ I Do Have A Question, Please~ What, Exactly, Is VANILLA ESSENCE? Not the same as Vanilla EXTRACT, I’m guessing.
    Thank You kindly, My Dear!

      Good Lord~ I PROMISE That After This, I WILL PUT DOWN THE TABLET & STOP BOTHERING YOU… FOR THE NIGHT, ANYWAY! 😆 AND PLEASE FORGIVE ME, but I just saw another link for The Lemon Curd!
      I know that all of Those Wonderful Ads On Your Site Are Very Important For YOU… $$$ or £££ OR… but for me they are popping up all over the page and due to the fact that I’m easily distracted, I completely missed seeing The Title Line!
      SHORT STORY LONG~ That’s MY Style~ PLEASE DISREGARD (OR DELETE!) MY PREVIOUS COMMENT ATTACHED TO THIS REPLY! SERIOUSLY, I NEED TO EAT SOMETHING (OMG~ LIKE THAT BROCCOLI & BLUE CHEESE STROMBOLI~[SP?]!!)!
      Thanks & Good Night… Morning?!

    When you say half a cup of butter melted. Do you mean solid butter half a cup then melt or half a cup of melted butter. I’m hoping the latter

      I cut up solid butter in a half cup and melt it but measure the melted butter back in the half cup to make sure the measurement is correct. Sometimes I can be too zealous with my packing of the solid butter into the measuring cup.

    Made lemon curd and butterfly cakes today. Absolutely delish and such a treat for me to have lemon curd as a diabetic.
