About this recipe: I made this lovely lemon cream, similar to lemon curd, and enjoy it with almost anything: with fresh fruit, shortbread biscuits, scones... there are so many possibilities! This recipe makes enough for two jars, but don't worry - it goes fast.


Makes: 2 jars of lemon cream

  • 200ml fresh lemon juice
  • 100g salted butter
  • 3 eggs

Prep:20min  ›  Cook:5min  ›  Ready in:25min 

  1. Put all ingredients in a saucepan and heat over medium heat, stirring constantly with a whisk; mixture will thicken after about 5 minutes.
  2. As mixture becomes creamy, remove from heat. Pour into jars and let cool to room temperature. Cover and keep in refrigerator, to preserve the cream longer.

There's no sugar - soooo tart. So added about 100gms. Sieved it too to get rid of eggy bits. It's ok, not sure I'd make it again. - 12 Aug 2015
