Lemon Curd

Cooking time
Less than 30 mins


  • 1 egg
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1/3 cup caster sugar
  • 2 teaspoons finely grated lemon rind
  • 4 tablespoons lemon juice
  • 50g butter, chopped


Place egg, egg yolk, sugar lemon rind and lemon juice in a small heavy-based saucepan. Whisk to combine and add butter.

Heat saucepan over medium heat and cook, whisking, for 7-8 minutes or until mixture thickens and the whisk leaves a trail. Remove from heat and stand for 5 minutes.

Cool until just warm and pour into a sterilised 250ml jar. Cover the curd with a small circle of baking paper and stand until cold. Once cold, seal the jar and store in a cool place.
