Microwave lemon curd for citrus cupcake

Category: Cakes

 Ingredients List

  • 1 cup white sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 cup lemon juice
  • zest of 2 lemons (can use less or none if desired)
  • 1/2 cup unsalted butter, melted


In a microwave-safe bowl, whisk together the sugar and eggs until smooth. Stir in lemon juice, lemon zest and butter. Cook in the microwave for one minute intervals, stirring after each minute until the mixture is thick enough to coat the back of a metal spoon. This took me a total of 4 minutes.

Remove from the microwave cool for 1 hour. Store for up to three weeks in the refrigerator in a sealed container. It will thicken a little more once it has been refrigerated.
