To make the curd, melt butter in a saucepan, add lemon juice and set aside. Whisk yolks and sugar in a large bowl to combine, then add hot lemon mixture, whisking continuously to combine. Place over a saucepan of simmering water and stir continuously until mixture thickens, then cool over ice. Sift flours and baking powder into a large bowl, stir in sugar, then make a well in the centre. Whisk milk, eggs and one teaspoon melted butter in a separate bowl to combine, gradually add to flour mixture and mix until a smooth batter forms. Set aside to rest for 30 minutes. Heat ¼ of remaining butter in a large frying pan over medium heat until foaming, drop teaspoons of batter into pan and cook until bubbles form on the surface, then turn and cook until golden. Repeat with remaining batter. Serve warm with lemon curd and double cream.
