Method

10 mins
 

Place the doughnuts on the braai grid over medium coals and toast for 1 – 2 minutes. Remove to cool for later use.


For the lemon curd, add the whisked eggs to a mixing bowl, along with the sugar, lemon zest and lemon juice, then whisk briskly.


Place the bowl over a pot of simmering water, making sure the bowl doesn’t touch the water and stir occasionally.


Add the butter and keep stirring until the sauce thickens – this can take a couple of minutes. Once cooked, strain the curd into a jug and set aside to cool.


Whip the cream on high until it forms fluffy peaks.


Stir the mascarpone cheese into the cooled lemon curd and mix well.

Use a piping bag or spoon to top the doughnuts with the lemon curd mascarpone mixture.


Add the berries, a dollop of whipped cream and a sprinkling of icing sugar. Garnish with the mint leaves.
