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 www.tenina.com to find some more great Thermomix recipes.
Anyway, cut to the chase, here it is:
Thermomix Lemon Curd Recipe
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
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.
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??!!
