Lemon Curd Thermomix Recipe

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.

NB You might have been searching for lemon butter Thermomix or Thermomix lemon butter, rest assured that this is the recipeyou are looking for. Lemon curd and lemon butter are the same thing!

 

It’s printable too!

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 spoonful onto low fat cottage cheese. Very yummy.

Yum! This Thermomix lemon curd recipe is totally scrumptious!  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??!!

    Hi Seana,

    I’m just making this recipe for the first time (and it’s smelling amazing!) but I was just curious how long this keeps for in the fridge?

    Thanks

      Ummm…. I don’t know… I don’t tend to use it as a spread so much as a filling for tarts or to stir through yoghurt and cream… at least a week, I am sure… sorry can’t be more help… hope you enjoy it.

    I’m wondering if one can double the amount. Does it change the time at 80° or is ist still 8 min?

    • Reply April 9, 2015

      Seana Smith

      Hello, I did do that once and increased the time to 10 mins and then I think I had to do another minute. Bit of trial and error required.

    I’ve tried your recipe tonight and it really is yummy. First day of spring in Lyons, France, and it was just right! Thanks

    This is my favourite lemon curd recipe. Our tree is so full of lemons at the moment I’m making loads of batches. (Not all for me of course!)

      I wish I had a lemom tree… I have to buy them at the shops, or the best is at the local market. This really is a good recipe, I’ve got some in the fridge just now and my decadent brekkie is toast and lemon curd- and butter too!

    Hi there, Just discovered your recipe and am wondering if you or anyone else has made an orange curd in the Thermomix?? Any idea of the quantities – zest & juice of one orange??
    Thanks in advance!

      I haven’t tried this myself but I think just a straight swap is the place to start. It would be fab if you could let us know how it goes.

    Made this for the first time last week and it was wonderful … in fact, all my colleagues at work thought it was so wonderful they went out and got me more lemons so that I could make them more this weekend! Thanks for the recipe.

    Hi just made these but it turned out very wet. Not supposed to thicken over time? Thks

    • Reply June 2, 2016

      Seana Smith

      Hmmm… when I make this, the curd is quite thick. See what it’s like after a night in the fridge. Definitely put the right amount of eggs in??

    Hi,
    I just made this,nforgot to put the butterfly in, and it still was lovely and thick!
    I could taste a few chunky little lemon bits, does that mean I need to pulverise a bit longer? Or is that how curd should be? First time maker!
    Thanks!

    • Reply June 3, 2016

      I like it better with no lemon bits, sometimes I need to scrape the sides and do it a bit more for that. Glad it worked with no butterfly!

      Yes enough eggs. No worries must’ve stuffed up somewhere.. it still tastes great as a syrup teemed w warm lemon muffins!!! Thanks!

    Hi how many jars does this make?

    • Reply June 27, 2016

      Seana Smith

      Hello Caitlyn, sorry to say that I’ve only stored it in plastic tubs in the fridge and made tarts with this. At a guess this would make one average jam jar size. Cheers, Seana

    I made this with half the amount of lemon juice and half the rind and it came out runnier than the first batch I did. I just found it too tart for the kids. Should I have cooked it longer? Should it set in the fridge?
