Thermomix Lemon Curd Recipe – Quick and Easy

Lemon Curd2

I love lemon curd but had never attempted it before I found this recipe online. Now, it’s a staple of the household.

This is a Thermomix recipe, originally called Tenina’s Lemon Curd and featured in one of her books, although I found it in a forum.

Hop over to to find some more great Thermomix recipes.

Anyway, cut to the chase, here it is:

Thermomix Lemon Curd Recipe

100g butter
fine zest of 1 lemon (sometimes I just peel the lemon with a potato peeler and then whizz the peel with the sugar to pulverise it)
juice of 2 lemons
2 eggs
1 egg yolk
150g castor sugar

Place everything into the bowl. Chop 5 seconds, speed 7.

Insert butterfly and cook 8 mins/80o/speed 3.

Too easy!!

Using Thermomix Lemon Curd

Obviously lemon curd is made with lots of butter and sugar, so it’s a take it easy kind of food.

The strong flavour is amazing, and so a little goes a long way.

One of my favourite inventions with it has been dolloping a spoonsful onto low fat cottage cheese. Very yummy.

My kids love this swirled through thick Greek yoghurt.

I’ve also used it to make a lemon tart for the kids, using a basic crumbled biscuit and butter base.

The kids adore this, and so do my neighbours and friends.

The next recipe I’m going to try will be a lemon curd ice cream. What can go wrong??!!

  1. I haven’t jumped on the Thermomix band wagon yet but two of my girlfriends have so I’ll be forwarding your link to them.
    My parent’s lemon tree is going bonkers at the moment so I have been making lemon curd, lemonade and of course cakes! For a simple lemon curd icecream you can simply soften a carton of premium icecream and stir through the curd and re-freeze. I do this with stewed plums and it’s sensational!
    I have a lemon curd recipe on the blog that is quite simple to make adapted from a Serge Dansereau recipe. Here’s the link:

    • Hi Di, I think I did read and was inspired by that post to try a Thermomix one. I am drooling at the thought of plum ice cream!!

  2. Hi there! Just wondering how long this usually keeps for in the fridge?

    • Seana Smith says:

      Good question… I usually use it up quickly so haven’t kept it longer than a week but I am sure it would last much longer.

      • This will keep really well in the fridge for about 4 weeks as long as it has been placed into sterilised jars in the beginning. Thanks for the mention! :D

        • Seana Smith says:

          Hello Tenina, we love this recipe. I put it onto a base made with nuts and dates and even my junk-food obsessed teens scoff it down, and it’s so easy. This post gets read a lot and I know people come to visit you via the link and feel good about that as it’s 100% your recipe… your site is fantastic. Thrilled you’ve popped over here.

  3. hi..thanks for sharing this recipe. Just thought readers may like to know that once cooled, lemon curd freezes really well for up to 3 months..

  4. Sherrie Love says:

    Thanks for the post Seana. I’ve just made a batch and have it cooling now. Managed to a little taste test and it’s delicious. And thanks to Nina too. I might have to do the same and try a double batch and freeze some.

    • Seana Smith says:

      Much appreciated! I just made some last week too, and put it on a base of nuts/date all mooshed together, very healthy !!

  5. Kate Brady says:

    Hi Seana,

    I’m about to make some, just checking do I put the rind in to my thermo in pieces and then chop it up or zest it separately first?



    • Seana Smith says:

      Well, in this recipe you zest it first. But sometimes I have also peeled the rind and then whizzed it just with the sugar until it’s completely pulverised. That does work fine. I must change the recipe and add that info. Cheers Kate, hope it works well.

  6. Thanks for sharing this, am excited to try it. Just wondering if there is a dairy free alternative, not using nuts?

    • Seana Smith says:

      I’ve never tried a butter-free version, you could give it a whirl with Nuttelex. Would love to hear if that works.

    • Great recipe! Lemon Butter (curd) is my fave thing iPod thick toast. Brings back so many memories. I’m am literally about to try this recipe out, looks much easier!!!

      Also, I have made lemon curd with coconut oil before. I used equal quantities and it turned out pretty good!

      Thanks for a great recipe
