Easy Lemon Curd Recipe

Learn How to Make Lemon Curd from scratch! It’s easy to make and much more delicious than store-bought! This lemon curd recipe has the perfect balance of sweet and tart.

Afternoon tea, anyone? Lemon curd is sweet, tangy, and is used similarly to a jam on scones. We have Great Britain to thank for this gorgeous lemon dessert. Cheers!

This lemon curd is based on my Paleo Lemon Curd recipe, which is a honey lemon curd because honey is used in place of sugar. It also calls for a paleo-friendly fat source in place of butter. You can adjust the sweetness to your liking but I suggest starting with this base recipe.

Easy Lemon Curd Recipe Story


Bring a small saucepan of water to a simmer and place a heatproof bowl on top.


Add in the egg yolks, granulated sugar, lemon juice, and lemon zest to the bowl. Cook the mixture, stirring constantly for 10-15 minutes. The mixture should thicken quite a bit and resemble hollandaise when it’s fully cooked.
