Step 1Preheat oven to 170 °C/ 340 °F (conventional), or 150 °C/ 300 °F (fan assisted). To make the crust, combine all ingredients in a bowl and mix well.

Step 2Line a tray (either 20 x 20 cm/ 8 x 8" or 23 x 15 cm/ 9 x 6" tray) with baking paper, and then pour the mixture in, pressing down firmly. Bake 15 to 18 minutes, until just starting to brown.

Step 3While the crust is baking, whisk together all of the lemon curd ingredients in a bowl.

Step 4Pour onto the base as soon as it comes out of the oven (while its still hot). Spread across the base, and return to the oven, lowering the temperature to 160 °C/ 320 °F (conventional), or 140 °C/ 285 °F (fan assisted). Bake 15 to 18 minutes until just set in the centre.
Note: To prevent the top from cracking, place a ramekin filled with water in the oven. The steam will help keep the top moist.

Step 5Allow the pan to cool completely, and then move to the fridge for at least 2 hours before slicing.

Step 6Sprinkle with powdered low-carb sweetener before serving.

Step 7Store in a sealed container in the fridge up to 5 days.
