Lemon Custard (curd)


I’m not sure where to begin with this delicious treat. This is a lemon custard thats just spectacular. Its so wonderful and delightfully creamy. I can’t help but to steal spoonfuls time and again just to go Woo hoo! How spectacular is this!? Its really a great reminder of the best things in life. Something as simple as a lemon can really brighten up your day. Citrus is such a happy, crisp and bright flavor that really appreciate. It isn’t the usual uber sweet type of dessert. The clean tartness is super refreshing.

Lemon Custard (curd):

  • 1 cup sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • 1/2 cup butter (melted)
  • Zest of 1 lemon (or 1/2 teaspoon lemon extract)
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract


Place over medium low heat and very very slowly heat until thick. (you don’t want your custard to burn at the bottom of the pot) The custard is done when its thick enough to coat a spoon. If you can run your finger over the the spoon and theres clearly definition where you slid your finger then your custard should be finished. Keep in mind it will get thicker as it rests. Refrigerate for 2-6 hours before serving.
