Lemon Curd & Blueberry Preserve Freezer CakeServes 8-10 Prep time: 7.5 hours including freezer time Cooking time: 5 minutes
- 225g full fat Greek yoghurt
- 75g icing sugar
- 3 tbsp grated lemon zest
- 600ml double cream
- 1 jar Mrs Bridges Lemon Curd
- 125g Rich Tea biscuits
- 1 ½ jars Mrs Bridges Blueberry Preserve
- 50g fresh blueberries
- a little water
- 2 tbsp caster sugar
- Line a 2lb loaf tin with cling film, leaving overhang on all sides.
- In a large bowl, use an electric hand mixer to beat the yoghurt, icing sugar, and lemon zest together until well combined.
- Reduce to a slower speed and gradually add the double cream. Increase speed as it thickens, mixing until medium peaks have formed.
- Transfer two-thirds of the yoghurt mixture to another large bowl and fold in ½ jar of the lemon curd. Cover the remaining yoghurt mixture and refrigerate to use later to decorate the sides.
- Place a single layer of Rich Tea biscuits over bottom of the prepared tin, breaking pieces to fit. Use a spatula to evenly spread a quarter of the yoghurt mixture over the biscuits.
- Spread ½ jar of the blueberry preserve on top, then carefully spread another layer of the yoghurt mixture.
- Spread a thin layer of the lemon curd on top of this.
- Spoon a third of remaining yoghurt mixture over this and top with another layer of biscuits.
- Repeat the layering process until the tin is full allowing space to finish with a layer of yoghurt mixture and then finally, the biscuits.
- Cover with cling film and freeze for a minimum of 6 hours.
- To finish the cake, take it out of the freezer and remove from the tin using the cling film to help. Upturn it onto a board or serving plate and then spread the top and sides of the cake with the refrigerated yoghurt mixture. Return it to the freezer for 20 minutes.
- Make a compote by adding 4 tbsp of Blueberry Preserve to a non-stick pan with 2 tbsp water, 2 tbsp caster sugar and the fresh blueberries. Gently simmer on a low heat for 5 minutes until the fruit breaks down, adding more water if required. Remove from the heat and allow to cool slightly.
- Serve slices of the cake drizzled with the blueberry compote.
