This is an easy recipe for Homemade Lemon Curd! It’s thick, velvety smooth, sweet and tangy. Yum!!
Ok I know lemon curd has been around forever but I know there are some of you out there who haven’t made it or even tried it. That my friends has to be fixed!
It is so super simple to make and it looks so pretty in cakes or desserts. I made it for the first time a few years ago as a filling for a cake and it changed my life!! Not really, but really.
Just dump all the ingredients in a pan, whisk it together over a little heat to thicken it up and push it through a mesh strainer. That’s it! The straining isn’t totally necessary but if you want it satiny smooth you will need to strain it to get out any solid egg pieces and the lemon zest.
It has so many uses such as filling for cakes or cupcakes, spread on toast or scones, toppings for cheesecakes or ice cream, or just top your spoon with it. Plus, this homemade lemon curd tastes waaaaaaay better than that store bought phony stuff. Trust me!!
