A nice butter to spread between a sponge cake, for tartlets or to put on your toast for breakfast. It is a great home made gift for Christmas.

Every bit as good as my grandma's recipe (actually I think her recipe was identical!) Truly delicious and sooo good slathered on toast (also good on pancakes!) Thanks so much for posting this one!


  1. Using an electric mixer, beat the eggs until light then add the sugar.
  2. Place in a saucepan with the butter and grated rind of 2 lemons.
  3. Add the juice from the 6 lemons to the egg mixture.
  4. Cook over a low heat until thick.
  5. Keeps in the fridge for a few weeks.
