This lemon curd is my favourite. Growing up, I have always been a huge fan of this recipe. My mom made it all the time. It is my favourite to go with bread or even cake! A big thanks to my mom for teaching me this simple and easy recipe because I get to make it for my kids as well. They could not get enough of this creamy and smooth curd. I always make sure that I have lemon curd in the fridge because my youngest kid keeps on reminding me that I should always make it for her. Kids, right? Anyway, give this one a try and feel free to add more ingredients if you wish. However, make sure to follow the cooking process for you to achieve the perfect taste and texture of this incredible curd!

3 large eggs


1 cup fresh lemon juice

3 lemon (2-1/8″ dia)s lemons, zested

½ cup unsalted butter, melted


Step 1: Add the eggs and sugar in a microwave-safe bowl. Whisk until creamy.

Step 2: Add the butter, lemon zest, and lemon juice. Stir until well blended.
