Microwave Lemon Curd

It's A New Day

"Be sure to use a large enough microwave safe bowl because this will boil up. I used my 8 cup Pyrex measuring cup. This recipe comes courtesy of King Arthur Flour."

  • Prep

  • Cook

  1. In large microwave safe bowl, whisk sugar and eggs. Add melted butter, whisking to combine. Finally add lemon juice and option lemon rind, whisking until smooth. Put the bowl on a plate (to catch any bubble-overs), place in the microwave, and cook in 1-minute increments, stirring after each. Depending on the power of your microwave, it should take 8-10 minutes on High. Curd will just be thickening and will coat the back of a spoon. Serve warm over gingerbread or refrigerate to thicken.
