Description

Homemade lemon curd recipe is incredibly easy to prepare. With only 5 ingredients, you get a perfectly sweet and tangy flavor with such a creamy texture. The perfect spread with scones, cakes and pancakes.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 medium lemons*, juice and zest
  • 4 large eggs
  • 1/3 cup (80g) unsalted butter, softened at room temperature and diced
  • 3/4 cups (150g) white sugar

Instructions

  1. Wash the lemons, grate the zests and press the juice. When zesting, make sure you do not remove the white flesh, which gives bitterness.
  2. Beat the eggs in a medium glass mixing bowl. Whisk in the lemon juice, zests, butter and sugar.
  3. Heat the bowl in a water bat (bain-marie) in a larger saucepan filled with some water until the the half. Whisk the mixture regularly for 20 minutes until it thickens.
  4. Once the texture thickened, pour into a glass jar and cool completely. Then place the jar in the fridge and close it well, so that you can keep the lemon curd a few weeks before using it.

Notes

* Because you will need to use the zest as well, make sure you choose organic, untreated lemons.
