I use Lemon Curd in so many recipes – from cupcakes and cookies to cakes (like my Lemon and Raspberry Coffee Cake). For years, I would buy store lemon curd in jars, thinking that it would be too difficult to make my own. Well, how wrong was I? Not only is it quick and simple to make, it tastes 100 times better than the mass produced curd too.
All you have to do is juice some lemons and grate some lemon zest. Then simply heat these with sugar, egg yolks and butter until the lemon curd begins to thicken. Refrigerate until cold and then add it to your cakes, cookies, cupcakes, meringues – you name it! This lemon curd will keep for up to 2 weeks in the refrigerator.
