Lemon curd is smooth and thick spread, and traditionally was served with bread or scones at afternoon tea but now is used as a filling for cakes and tarts.
This wonderfully rich lemon curd is easy to make and perfect sauce for any dessert. Enjoy!
Prep time : 10 min
Cooking time : 15 min + chilling
(Makes ~360 gram)
1 egg yolk
70 ml fresh lemon juice
120 gram sugar
1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
3-4 tablespoon unsalted butter, softened
Place metal bowl over saucepan of simmering water, so that bottom of the bowl doesn’t touch water.
Place eggs, egg yolk, lemon juice and sugar into the bowl and whisk everything together until smooth. Stirring constantly, cook for about 10 minutes or until mixture becomes thick.
Remove from the heat and add butter and stir until butter has melted then add lemon zest.
Transfer lemon curd to a glass jar and cover with clingfilm to prevent skin from forming; leave it to cool before transferring to a fridge.

Last time I made Lemon Curd I made it from a microwave recipe I found on the net. It was so simple to make. Came out great.I still have some left. This looks so good. I am glad that you posted this so it reminds me of what is sitting in the refrigerator. Yummy.
