The Best Lemon Curd

Really. I promise the title of this post is true! And the best part? It’s all cooked by the microwave. Yes- delicious, pretty, and easy as cupcake. Gave some of these cupcakes to some friends (so nice to be my taste-testers) and they liked em.

I got the recipe from here, but I didn’t follow the recipe exactly- I followed one helpful comment from another baker on the website.

Microwave Lemon Curd

3 whole eggs

2 egg yolks

1 ¼ cup sugar

1 cup lemon juice

Zest of 3 lemons

½ cup unsalted butter, melted

–          Whisk together sugar and eggs until smooth

–          Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest, and butter

–          Cook in microwave for 1 minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture os hick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon

Baker’s notes:

–          Stores up to 3 weeks in the refrigerator in an air-tight container

–          Took me 5 ½ minutes to cook

–          The three lemons I zested did not yield enough juice to fill 1 cup, so I just added to the amount that the 3 lemons gave me with lemon juice concentrate to fill up to 1 cup.
