Microwave lemon curd
- 200g caster sugar
- 3 eggs
- 250ml fresh lemon juice
- 3 lemons, zested
- 100g unsalted butter, melted
Prep:10min › Cook:6min › Ready in:16min
- In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the caster sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter. Cook in the microwave for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon.
- Remove from the microwave, and pour into small sterilised jam jars. Store for up to three weeks in the fridge.
very lemony but good. makes ALOT and when heating it will expand so ensure you microwave it in a big jug/container (or you'll be cleaning the microwave plate!) - 04 Mar 2010
wonderfully quick and easy recipe. Will use again and again..thank you. The 3 lemons I zested did not produce enough juice - ended up using an extra lemon and a lime (ran out of lemons!) I also warmed the fruits very slightly in the microwave before juicing..nifty way to get more juice out of them. - 02 Jun 2012
This is fabulous. It did take a while for mine to set so if you are still cooking it after 10 or so minutes, don't worry it comes together in the end. - 25 Apr 2012
