Perfect Lemon Curd

Stacey Norwood


I finally took my mother's advice and tried the microwave method for making lemon curd. She always said it was foolproof and she was right! Couldn't have been easier, and it's creamy, tart and delicious.

How to Make Perfect Lemon Curd


  1. Strain lemon juice through a fine sieve to remove any pulp or seeds.
  2. In a microwave-safe glass bowl, melt butter. In a separate bowl, whisk together lemon juice, sugar and eggs.
  3. Slowly whisk lemon juice mixture into butter, whisking constantly to avoid curdling.
  4. Microwave on HIGH at 1-minute intervals, whisking well, until curd coats the back of a spoon. Three to four rounds in the microwave should do it.
