Easy Microwave Lemon Curd
Gorgeously smooth and tangy, you’re going to want to slather this easy microwave lemon curd on cakes, crumpets or eat it by the spoonful…
The most delicious, sunny and creamy lemon curd. Feel free to try this recipe with any citrus fruit! It’s as adaptable as it is easy.
Fruit curds have a bit of a bad rep for being fussy and time consuming, requiring a water bath, and loads of patient stirring. My preferred method for curds is to pop the mixture in intervals in the microwave. This will still yield a smooth and buttery curd, perfect on scones over fluffy clouds of cream, poured into pastry shells, spread over cakes or just eaten spoon in hand straight from the jar. Want to level this up? Add 1tsp of orange blossom water or rose water for a floral and summery treat.
