Microwave Lemon Curd

This is old-fashioned lemon curd made fast, easy, extra-lemony and lower in sugar and butter. Use as a filling for tarts or meringue shells, for spreading on toast or scones, or as a cake filling. Also great made with limes. Makes 1 1/2 cups (enough for 24 small tarts).

  • Yield: 1 serving


  • 3 eggs
  • 3/4 cup(s) granulated sugar
  • 1 tablespoon(s) lemon rind
  • 1/2 cup(s) fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoon(s) butter soft


In microwavable bowl (or glass measuring cup), whisk together eggs and sugar. Whisk in lemon rind, lemon juice and butter. Microwave on High for 2 minutes; whisk until smooth. Microwave on High for 2 to 3 minutes longer until it boils and thickens slightly; whisk again until smooth. Let cool, then refrigerate (it will thicken a lot more as it chills). May be stored in covered jar in refrigerator for up to a week.
