Lemon Curd Recipe

Lovely lovely Lemon Curd. It's not sweet. It's just a slightly sour which is just right. Received tons of praise on it when we used it as one the ingredients of our bakes.

Give this a try along with some of our suggested creations of ours!

5 Eggs
115g Sugar
150ml Lemon Juice
0.25 teaspoon of Salt
150ml Whipping Cream (35% Fat) or 100g Full Cream Milk + 30g Melted Butter

1. Put Eggs, Sugar, Salt, and Lemon Juice in a stainless steel bowl. Whisk until the sugar dissolves.
2. Pour in the Whipping Cream and mix well to combine.
3. Place the bowl over a saucepan of simmering water. Continuously stir with a whisk for about 10-15 minutes, or until the mixture is smooth and thick.
4. When the mixture is cooked, remove from the heat, stir for about 1 minute longer to cool a little.
5. Place the Lemon Curd in a air-tight container and refrigerate for at least 8 hours or overnight before use.

Some Extra Tips Below:
- This can be store up to 1 week.
- The curd should transform as it cooks, starting off as a very thin cream with froth on top that will then become thick with bubbles, when the bubbles disappear altogether about 5 minutes before cooking is complete.
- Ensure continuous stirring at all times to avoid ending up with a grainy texture in the finished curd.
