Servings: 4


  • 3 Egg yolks
  • 200g Sugar
  • 1 Lemon
  • ~50g melted Butter


  1. Cook egg yolks and sugar on a double boiler till it thickens.
  2. Add lemon juice and serve in a bowl.

The main ingredients include fresh lemons, sugar, eggs, and butter. The zest and juice of the lemons give the curd its vibrant flavor, sugar adds sweetness to balance the tang, and the eggs and butter create a luxurious, creamy texture.

The process involves whisking together eggs, sugar, and lemon zest, then adding lemon juice and butter. This mixture is cooked slowly on low heat until it thickens to a custard-like consistency. Once cooled, the lemon curd can be enjoyed in many ways - as a spread on toast, a filling for tarts, or even a topping for ice cream.

Making homemade lemon curd is a fantastic way to bring a touch of something special and homemade to your kitchen, and this recipe makes it easy and accessible. Give it a try, and you’ll never go back to store-bought!

Enjoy! :)
