This recipe is a very easy version of how to make your very own homemade lemon curd. Once cooked you can pour it into an airtight container or jar and keep it in the fridge for up to a month -yum! As well as being great on toast, lemon curd can be used in many a dessert.

Ingredients

  • 6 tbsp / 75g unsalted butter
  • 1 cup / 190g sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 2 egg yolks
  • 2/3 cup /160ml lemon juice

Instructions

  1. Using an electric whisk beat the butter and sugar together until soft
  2. Add the eggs and egg yolks
  3. Beat well together
  4. Then pour in the lemon juice and beat. It will look curdled but that is fine
  5. Transfer into a small saucepan and put on to heat on a low temperature
  6. Keep stirring until it looks smooth
  7. increase heat to medium and cook without letting it boil until it thickens up, 5-7 minutes.
