Easy Lemon Custard


  • 1/3 cup granulated sugar
  • 1/3 cup fresh lemon juice
  • 2 tsp lemon zest, finely grated
  • 2 large eggs, room temperature
  • 1/4 cup butter, room temperature

How to make

  • In a small saucepan, combine the sugar, lemon juice, lemon zest, and the eggs.
  • Add the butter and cook over low heat, stirring continuously with a whisk, until it bubbles and the curd has become thicker, about 6-8 minutes (but trust your eyes and nose!)

If you want a finer creamy, custard, strain the lemon curd through a piece of cheesecloth of a sieve.
