A little perplexed in that there isn't a sweetner in the ingredients, shouldn't there be?

The ingredients seem to lack sweeteners, yet it states to add maple syrup in the 1st step. I think something's amiss. Probably explains why there's a lack of reviews/saves for this recipe.

A few comments:
1) Many recipes on the site are submitted by members of the community--often amateur (like myself) and anyone can post a recipe. Here's hoping the community member who posted this recipe weighs in; generally recipe authors receive an email when a query is posted about his or her recipe.
2) That said, there seem to be some editing issues with this recipe; ingredients are not in the order in which they are used--the lemon curd ingredients are in the middle of the ingredient list, baking powder is listed way at the bottom--standard format for writing recipes is listing ingredients in order, of course! A little confusing!
3) the submitter has a blog that you can find by clicking on her name and viewing her profile, then clicking the link. Although I tried searching for this recipe there, I did not find it. Perhaps you will have better luck with various search parameters, and will be able to clarify the amount of maple syrup.
4) If all else fails, it may be worthwhile to seek a vetted recipe on this site. Recipes that are approved are so noted. Which is not to say there aren't good recipes that haven't won a contest, and this might be quite good if one can sort out the ingredients and their proper measure!

one more thought: perhaps someone else may weigh in with knowledge of the "standard" sweetening level of maple syrup for the given volumes of lemon juice, cornstarch, and egg replacer.
