  1. Grease 4 x 150ml microwavesafe ramekins with baking spread. In a small bowl, mix 6 tbsp lemon curd with 4 tsp boiling water to loosen. Divide between the ramekins and set aside.
  2. Beat 75g each baking spread and caster sugar in a mixing bowl until pale and fluffy. Mix in 1 medium egg and the zest of 1 lemon, then fold in 75g self-raising flour. Stir in 4 tsp lemon juice.
  3. Spoon over the lemon curd in the ramekins, smoothing the tops. Transfer to a large microwave-safe plate and microwave on high* for 4 mins. Leave to stand for 1 min (they will finish cooking in this time and become spongier on top). Dust with icing sugar and serve with fresh raspberries and crème fraîche, if you like.
