Lemon Curd Recipe

Lemon Curd Recipe

  1. 1 egg yolk
  2. 1 tablespoon butter
  3. 2 tablespoons lemon juice
  4. 2 tablespoons sugar

This yields a little less than a quarter cup of curd.


Cream sugar and butter. Add the lemon juice. Taste the mixture to ensure you like the taste. If it is too lemony, add another tablespoon of sugar. Add the egg yolk and mix well. Transfer the content to a saucepan and put it on the stove on low heat. Continue stirring until the spatula or whisk leaves marks. Switch off the stove and immediately transfer the content to a vessel. This prevents over cooking. Use as desired.
