Recipe for Lemon Curd – four ingredients, four minutes, one bowl and super easy
1 cup sugar
juice of 2 lemons
2 whole eggs
50g cold butter, cut into cubes
Place the sugar in a heatproof bowl. Stir in the lemon juice. Add the eggs and whisk together. Microwave on high for 1 minute. Whisk thoroughly. Place back in the microwave for another minute and repeat once more. Whisk again and cook for another 30 seconds. This means, you’ll have completed 3 1/2 minutes in total.
Lastly, whisk in the cubed butter until incorporated and smooth. Pour into sterilised jars and seal. It’s best stored in the refrigerator.
Once opened, use the lemon curd with 7 days.
