  1. Pre-heat oven to 350°F.

  3. In a stand mixer, combine buttermilk and next 5 ingredients, (sugar through eggs) and mix well.
  4. Slowly add the flour mixture into the buttermilk mixture, and blend.
  5. Spoon batter into a 9 x 12 baking dish coated with cooking spray.

Lemon Curd:
  1. Combine eggs and sugar in a stainless steel bowl and whisk until light and fluffy.
  2. Add lemon juice and zest and whisk again.
  3. Using a double boiler, cook until mixture coats the back of a wooden spoon or reaches 160°F.
