Using fresh and creamy butter makes the tastiest curd, and it also helps achieve a smooth and rich consistency.


  • 6 tablespoons butter, cut into small chunks
  • 2 large eggs
  • 6 tablespoons superfine sugar
  • Grated zest of 1 lemon
  • 1/4 cup freshly squeezed lemon juice


  1. Place the sugar and the eggs into a saucepan, whisk together to combine and then add the zest and the lemon juice; whisk over medium-low heat.
  2. Slowly add in the chunks of butter, whisking vigorously after each addition to blend, and then bring the mixture to a boil. Remove the curd from the heat and cool slightly prior to using.
