Lemon Curd Pinterest

Easy lemon curd recipe, lemon curd is made only with eggs, lemon juice and sugar, a small addition of butter will help thickening it. There are so many ways to use lemon curd, it's delicious in tarts, muffins, chou pastry, as a dip, etc. Velvety, sweet yet a little tart, finger licking good!

Lemon curd can be stored in the fridge for about a week in a closed jar.

I have used this lemon curd recipe for my strawberry tart, here is a link to the recipe click here and for my lemony cream cheese and berries cups, click here

 

  • 1 1/2 cup
  • Easy
  • 15 minutes

Ingredients :

3 eggs

3/4 cup (150 g) sugar

1/3 cup (80 ml) fresh lemon juice (about 1 or 2 lemons)

4 tbsp (60 g) soft unsalted butter

1 tbsp lemon zest

Recipe :

Into a double boiler with simmering water, add eggs, sugar and lemon juice (filtered) and whisk until homogenized

Continue whisking lightly and constantly until the preparation thickens, almost like mayonnaise, in the beginning a lot of foam will form, when the lemon curd is ready, all that foam will be absorbed, be patient as it takes about 10 minutes 

Remove from heat and strain into another bowl to remove any lumps of cooked egg,

Add butter and stir until it is completely melted

Add lemon zest and stir to incorporate

Cover with a piece of plastic wrap directly on the cream and let cool

Once cooled, if you don’t use it immediately, store lemon curd into a lidded jar

The lemon curd will continue to thicken once refrigerated

Enjoy!
