Making Lemon Curd in the Thermomix is super easy, you only need four ingredients and it takes just fourteen minutes to cook. It saves a lot of effort standing over a hot stove constantly whisking away and is guaranteed to be lump-free.
Once you make this smooth and creamy Thermomix Lemon Curd there is no going back to store-bought versions. It's deliciously sweet and tangy and lasts in the fridge for a couple of weeks.
Ingredients to Make Lemon Curd
All you need is caster sugar, butter, eggs and lemon juice and zest. I use four whole eggs and one egg yolk. There are different variations - I love this version as it gives the curd a lovely yellow colour.
Step by Step
- Insert the Butterfly whisk and place all the ingredients into the mixing bowl.
- Cook for 14 minutes/80°/speed 3 until lovely and thick - it will continue to thicken when it cools down.
Some recipes call for straining the lemon curd before it sets to get rid of the zest. I don't bother as it's messy and creates more washing up and I find the cooked zest is hard to detect.
Transfer the lemon curd to a container or sterilised jar, then cover the surface with cling film to prevent a skin forming. Allow cooling on the bench-top then store in the fridge for up to two weeks.
